That State conference resolves to congratulate Prime Minister Albanese and Foreign Minister Wong on the restoration of aid to the Palestinian people and the shifting of Australia’s vote at the UN on matters relating to Israel’s occupation of Palestine.
That State Conference re-affirms the resolution carried at the 2018 and 2021 national conferences, and supports the recognition and right of Israel and Palestine to exist as two states within secure and recognised borders.
That State conference calls on the Albanese Labor Government to recognise the Palestinian State within the term of this Parliament, joining with 138 countries, and the Vatican, which have already done so.
In line with the universal principles and values of peace, justice, human rights, equality, and respect for international law, we must reaffirm support and solidarity with the just struggle of the Palestinian people for a free, sovereign and independent state, and call for peace & justice in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Now in government, the Albanese Labor Government has the opportunity to honour its commitment to recognising the Palestinian State and the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people.
