Party positions on the Question of Palestine
September 2013 Federal Election, Sydney electorate, New South Wales

Thank you for your email regarding Palestine.

Please have a read of the Australian Greens position on the Israel-Palestine conflict.

The Greens moved a motion in the Senate in support of Palestine’s bid for United Nations membership.

The Greens support a peace settlement based upon the 1967 borders, and oppose the expansion of settlements in the Occupied Territories.

The Greens also oppose Israel’s blockade of the Gaza Strip, and support increased Australian aid to Palestine.

If I am elected, I will strongly support for a foreign policy that supports the rights of Palestinians to live in peace and freedom.

Thank you for your concern about this important issue.

Yours sincerely,

Dianne Hiles
Greens candidate for Sydney
