AJPP – Who Are we?

Australians for Justice and Peace in Palestine (AJPP) is a community organisation, based in the Canberra region. We welcome as members all who support our primary objective – to advocate a just peace between Palestine and Israel which respects and observes international human rights and humanitarian law and all relevant resolutions of the United Nations.

AJPP undertakes programs and activities to educate and inform governments, non-government organisations and members of the public in Australia about its primary objective. We hold public meetings, make representations to federal and state governments in Australia, liaise and cooperate with likeminded organisations, and research and publish relevant information and opinions.

AJPP was launched in Petrie Plaza in Canberra in December 2002.

AJPP welcomes the following resolution from the ALP National Conference. We strongly urge any future Labour Government to ACT ON THE RESOLUTION without delay.

 

ALP National Conference, December 2018

Resolution on Palestine

(as copied from shot of overhead projection of the agreed text)

  1. Notes previous resolutions on Israel and Palestine carried at the 2015 ALP National Conference and the 2016 NSW Labor Annual Conference;
  2. Supports the recognition and right of Israel and Palestine to exist as two states within secure and recognised borders;
  3. Calls on the next Labor Government to recognise Palestine as a state; and
  4. Expects that this issue will be an important priority for the next Labor Government.

Note:         Tony Burke, in his comments at the time, said that the implementation of this resolution “will, in government, be a cabinet decision.”  He also said that the Palestinians “also deserve a land of their own.”
