BADIL's new Packet provides informational background as well as suggestions for international action in defense of Palestinian refugees' right of return, restitution, and compensation. It is a resource tool designed to strengthen the rapidly growing Palestinian and international campaign for Palestinian refugee rights, at a time when Israel and the US government are launching yet another effort, by means of secretive "negotiations" conducted in a US military base, to coerce the Palestinian leadership into a surrender of the refugees' right of return.
BADIL's Campaign Packet includes:
a) The RIGHT OF RETURN - A Guide to the Campaign for the Defense of Palestinian Refugee Rights: The Right of Return; Protection & Assistance; Refugee Empowerment; (40 pages);
b) Country Profiles - Palestinian Refugees in Exile: Gaza Strip; West Bank; Lebanon; Jordan; Syria; Israel (internally displaced Palestinians); Egypt. (48 pages);
c) BADIL - Information & Discussion Briefs
Brief No. 1: Reinterpreting Palestinian Refugee Rights Under International Law, and a Framework for Durable Solutions (Susan M. Akram);
Brief No. 2: Fora Available for Palestinian Refugee Restitution, Compensation and Related Claims (Susan M. Akram);
Brief No. 3: The Evolution of an Independent, Community Based Campaign for Palestinian Refugee Rights in the 1967 Occupied Palestinian Territories and 1948 Palestine/Israel (Ingrid Jaradat Gassner);
(Additional BADIL Briefs are forthcoming and will be added to the Packet.)
