Palestinian Youth Movement (PYM)
The Palestinian Youth Movement (“PYM”) is a transnational, independent, grassroots movement of young Palestinians in Palestine and in exile worldwide as a result of the ongoing Zionist colonization and occupation of their homeland. Their belonging to Palestine and their aspirations for justice and liberation motivate them to assume an active role as a young generation in their national struggle for the liberation of their homeland and people. Irrespective of their different political, cultural and social backgrounds, they strive to revive a tradition of pluralistic commitment toward their cause to ensure a better future, characterized by freedom and justice on a social and political level, for themselves and subsequent generations.
Due to the accumulating challenges as a result of the ongoing Zionist colonization and occupation of their homeland, their determination to fulfill their aspirations for return and liberation are stronger than ever. Guided by principles of justice and liberation, they recognize that their struggle is inherently connected with the struggles of all oppressed and indigenous peoples. They affirm that their struggle is deeply rooted in the Arab regional context that must be freed of neocolonialism in order for the complete liberation of Palestine to become a tangible reality.
Their vision is to mobilize Palestinian youth, strengthen their role and assume responsibility and accountability to their national struggle. In order to revitalize their participation in the Palestine liberation struggle, they build upon historical and lived experiences that allow them to understand their various current realities while defending a strong common vision for Palestine.See more
