September 2019 | APAN Stands Up for UNRWA

After yet another defamatory media attack on UNWRA by the Zionist Federation of Australia, APAN undertook a social media campaign to support their work – releasing the attached social media. 

APAN’s statement concluded: Attacking the UN bodies that provide basic health and education services to Palestinian refugees is not a wise or honorable pursuit.  We all want Palestinians to be afforded the rights to be citizens in their own sovereign country.  And until that time, surely we can all support the rights of refugees to receive basic services.
