It’s a pleasure for us to present the "Palestine Solidarity conference", which will be organized by the Palestinian progressive Youth Union and RKU of Sweden and the Sports Club Proletären FF, in Sweden during the 7th to 11th of September 2004.

The conference was supposed to take place in Gaza in the summer of 2003 but was cancelled due to the Israeli army’s closure of Gaza. The Israelis can never stop the youth to meet and discuss their common interests, so now the conference is being held in Gothenburg, Sweden. In the conference we will among many things discuss these subjects:

Day one, Tuesday the 7th of September

(Visiting schools and universities in Gothenburg to inform about the situation)

Day four, Friday the 10th of September
Theme: Strategies for Solidarity with Palestine (Future action Plans )
- How to put pressure on the national governments to boycott Israel.

Day five, Saturday the 11th of September
Theme: Peace Race festival and closing of the conference.
The last day’s activities will take place in a big park in central Gothenburg. During the day there will be speeches and discussions in big tents. During this day there will also be a cultural festival with both Palestinian and Swedish artists. The participants will participate in the Peace Race and during the whole day there will be food, music and cultural activities. The progressive sports club Proletären FF organizes the peace race and the theme for the race is anti-imperialism and solidarity. For many years the race had its focus on boycotting South Africa. Now solidarity with Palestine and boycott Israel has been the theme for many, many years. In the evening a big party will be arranged. (About 800-1000) people usually attend the race. This year this number will probably increase due to the planned activities.)

Day six, Sunday the 12th of September
The delegates leave Sweden.

Note: There will be an exhibition during the conference days in addition to films that shows the Palestinian people sufferings and Palestinian cultural nights.

Me habían dicho que esta web era judeofoba. Se quedaron en poco. Odia furibundamente a los judíos. Y se dicen solidarios.
