Until Gaza territory and the Golan Heights are freed, stuggle continues.....

"Continue the struggle to liberate your land, there is no way but resistance to occupation". Che Guevarra

This was the assertion by the Cuban revolutionary, Argentinian born commandante Enersto Che Guevarra. It was in his visit to Palestine in 1959, after the Bandung conference of the Non-Aligned Movement in 1955. He visited refugee camps to see natives who were forcefully evicted from their homes in the southern part of Palestine by the Youv (Israel military operation) also known as the `Ten Plagues`.

"In short, the imperialist countries provide the South African racists with the latest military equipment, planes, missiles, tanks, artillery, blueprints for armaments production and military skills. Part of the imperialist strategy is the consolidation of ties between Zionist Israel and fascist South Africa (then apartheid regime). In the Middle East the conspiracy is to attempt to destroy the legitimate aspirations and struggle of the Arab peoples and, in particular, the Palestinian people under the leadership of the PLO (Palestine Liberation Organisation)". Oliver Tambo, 23 August 1977, (World Conference for Action Against Apartheid).

This year on this month of November, marks the anniversary of the resolution 181 of the UN (United Nations) day for solidarity and commitment with the people of Palestine against Israel apartheid which is inseparable to capitalism an evil system based of exploitation, wars, crime and creating crisis to mankind, the resolution was taken in 1977 by the UN General Assembly. The situation was viewed as one that will affect global security and peace. Up to this day and age, the UN is not practically decisive in upholding this resolution, but documented rhetorical resolution, which includes the UN Security Council has not taken drastic steps to address the conflict.
