The Friends of Palestine Solidarity Movement says it strongly condemns the United Kingdom’s declaration to celebrate the centenary of the Balffour Declaration which violated the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people to achieve their self determination as an independent Palestine state with full membership to the United Nations.

The board chairperson Friends of Palestine Solidarity Movement, Mr Robson Musarafu said the centenary celebrations by the United Kingdom are a celebration of a century of injustices suffered by the Palestinian people and an insensitive recognition as acceptable, of their suffering and the denial to a state by the West and its cooperating allies.
