Joint Open Letter to the EU:
Palestinian human rights organisations will not attend the civil society consultations ahead of the EU-Israel Informal Working Group on Human Rights and International Organisations
Dear EU High Representative, Commissioner Füle, EU Special Representative for Human Rights and Representatives of the MAMA council working group,
As is the custom, this year’s EU-Israel Informal Working Group on Human Rights and International Organisations (Informal WG) will be preceded by a civil society consultation in Brussels with the EU External Action Service, and in Tel Aviv with the EU representative office.
This year, the Palestinian Human Rights Organisations Council (PHROC) has decided not to participate in such consultations in light of the following.
