The association of the "Right of Retern" in Greece

Dear Friends and comrades,

The association of the ROR in greece, was established in June 2009. The fundamental basis for establishing the association is the demand for the right of Palestinian refugees to return to their homeland in Palestine. The AL Awda Association strives to accomplish its objective through the projection of the question of Palestine and the problems of Palestinian refugees-whereever they are located. This can achieved by:

  • Defending the right of return of the Palestinian refugees to their ancestral land.
  • Supporting the fight of the Palestinian people in their efforts to realize their goals for independence, freedom and justice
  • Bringing together Palestinians that live in Greece for the better co-ordination of their struggle and for confronting the issues that concern them as a part of the Greek population
  • Developing the ties of friendship and solidarity between the populations of Greece and Palestine
  • Establishing an operational information center on the question of Palestine through the study, treatment and concretization of proposals and programs that will benefit economically, socially and culturally the Palestinians living in Palestine as well as those living outside, mainly in Palestinian refugee camps
  • Collaborating with similar organizations in the rest of Europe as well as with all democratic organizations and institutions that function in Greece.

The Israeli historian Ilan Pappe, clearly indicated what is at stake when he stated that: "Recognizing the very act of dispossession- by accepting in principle the Palestinian refugees' right of return- could be the crucial act that opens the gate to the road out of conflict."

We welcome Palestinians, other Arabs living here, Greeks and immigrants to join us in this morally just campaign.

To learn more about the association and the Right of Return you are kindly invited to visit our booth at the anti-racist festival on July 9, 10 and 11.
