    A man waves the Palestinian national flag as he marches with a demonstration.

On Nov. 29 cities across the world mark the day of International Solidarity with the Palestinian people created by the United Nations. For years, countries and social movements around the world, notably in Latin America have expressed passionate support for Palestinians living under occupation.

But this Nov. 29th, teleSUR English takes a deeper look at what it means to have solidarity between with Palestine and its people. Journalist Mohamed Hemish looks at if solidarity amid years of Israeli occupation and international complicity is really just symbolic gesture than a concrete action.

Writer and researcher on race and gender, Zoe Samudzi looks at what makes true effective solidarity between Black folks and Palestinians in the U.S.

While, long-time international solidarity activist Noura Khouri examines why international solidarity actions and alliances must advocate for the unification of the Palestinian working class with other justice movements, like #BlackLivesMatter, Indigenous people’s struggles, and border and migrant justice as observers speculate a new Intifada might be on the horizons.

“Israel is perfecting surveillance, and one of the top occupation profiteers, through the surveillance of the Palestinian people. Using knowledge and expertise gained from assisting in the occupation of Palestinians, the Israeli defense systems company, Elbit, has made millions exporting surveillance worldwide – and increasingly in Latin America. While, Israel’s role in arming dictators and oppressive regimes in Latin America during the last century is well documented, Elbit, is at the forefront of a new growing movement working in at least five Latin American countries, as well as along the U.S.-Mexico border.” Read More.
