March in Guatemala in solidarity with the Palestinian people

Guatemala City, May 26 (Prensa Latina) Civil society organizations and the population of Guatemala will rally today in this capital in solidarity with the people of Palestine and demanding respect for international law.

Through a statement, the organizers planned the march starting at noon, local time, from the centric Plaza Obelisco, “in demand of an immediate ceasefire and the cessation of hostilities that claim innocent lives”.

Amid the escalation of violence in the Gaza Strip and the continued suffering of the Palestinian people under Israeli occupation, they ruled out advocacy or supporting violent actions.

They acknowledged in the text that these are the product of 75 years of Israeli-imposed colonization and segregation in the occupied Palestinian territories

“Gaza and its authority represent six percent of the Palestinian territory, and we cannot disqualify the Palestinian cause because of the actions of resistance groups, which have exhausted their hope in achieving the freedom that has been so longed for decades,” they wrote.

The Palestinian Authority, which controls most of the occupied territory, renounced violence and conducts its struggle through political and diplomatic pressure, they added.
