Palestinians raise the South African Flag at the Great March of Return

South Africa has been one of the most important lessons that the Palestinians learn from. It has influenced many activities and popular movements in Palestine, especially the Boycott, Divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.

The Palestinian people always remember what Nelson Mandela, anti-apartheid activist and South African president, said about Palestine:

“We know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians.”

When one of these participants at the GRM was asked about the South African flag there, he answered:
“That’s how we struggle, that’s how we defeat apartheid, that’s how South Africa is very present. A struggle feeds another struggle, until we get rid of apartheid all over the world”.
