The text continues: “Together with some international civil society organizations, Palestinian civil society has long been targeted by measures which shrink its space to operate.”
The statement concludes with the WCC executive committee again calling “the conscience of the world to the unremitting military occupation of the Palestinian territories and the ongoing marginalization and obstruction of legitimate Palestinian aspirations for equal human dignity and rights.”
The WCC executive committee is meeting—in-person for the first time in two years—from 12-17 November at the Bossey Ecumenical Institute.
