On 25 April 2020 we commemorate and celebrate the Centenary of the San Remo Resolution.
Why is the San Remo Resolution so important?
In April 1920, the Principal Allied Powers of World War I convened at Villa Devachan in San Remo, Italy, to resolve some outstanding issues pertaining to the 1919 Paris Peace Conference. One of the issues was, how to break up the Ottoman Empire after the defeat of the Turks, taking into account the claims of several interested parties including the World Zionist Council. This conference resulted in the codification of the Balfour Declaration of November 2017 in two binding international legal instruments, the San Remo Resolution of 25 April 1920 and the Mandate for Palestine, as unanimously adopted on 24 July 1922 by the Council of the League of Nations, whose 51 Member States represented the international community of nations at the time. Therefore, it is fair to say that 100 years ago in San Remo, the Zionist Vision of a Jewish homeland in Palestine became International Law.
Should we still commemorate the San Remo Resolution?
In times when the Sate of Israel is continually delegitimised, it is important to commemorate and celebrate the Centenary of the San Remo Resolution. Watch the videos to learn all about the San Remo Resolution, the Mandate for Palestine and the relevance of these instruments of international law for our time.
