An International Campaign, “Britain, It’s Time To Apologise” was launched on 8th Feb. 2013 in Britain by the Palestinian Return Center (PRC).
It’s nearly 100 years since the UK Foreign Secretary, Arthur James Balfour, pronounced the Balfour Declaration, on 2nd November 1917, promising a homeland for the Jews in Palestine. Ever since, Palestinians have suffered tremendously under the shadow of Britain’s colonial past.
The Palestinian Return Centre (PRC), with other partners around the world, will join efforts over the next five years to mobilize people to support the campaign. It will gather a million signatures from those seeking justice in Palestine, in condemnation of British colonial policy between 1917-1948.
The campaign seeks to focus global attention on British legacy in Palestine and galvanize international support for an apology from Britain over its grave mistakes in Palestine.
The campaign aims to collect one million signatures to demonstrate the international appetite for addressing historical crimes committed in Palestine and make specific demands for an apology and restoration of past injustices.
Over 11 million Palestinians continue to suffer from the unjust and misguided British policy in Palestine.
The five year campaign will include mass mobilization, popular events, conferences and workshops, lobbying, petition and many other initiatives.
