YWCA of Japan: Statement on the “Peace Plan”

On 28th January 2020, US President Donald Trump issued a Middle East “peace plan”, whose contents ignore and undermine numerous international agreements and UN resolutions, and would accelerate the current illegal occupation by Israel. The YWCA of Japan stands in solidarity with the people and women of Palestine. We call for a realization of peace by putting an end to the occupation, instead of a one-sided “peace plan”.
