Activists At 'People's Conference For Palestine' In Detroit Emphasize Solidarity Between North Korea And Palestinians: DPKR Has Never Recognized The Zionist Tumor; To Hell With Democracy, We Must Bring Down This Empire With One Million Cuts; Chant: Long Live The Intifada!

At the closing session of the People's Conference for Palestine on May 26, 2024 in Detroit, Nadya Tannous, the general-coordinator of the Palestinian Youth Movement said: "We will not be distracted by […] a tiny concession – because we want the whole thing. It would be a dishonor for our people to accept anything less than that." The crowd chanted that they will return to Safed, Jaffa, Acre, Haifa, the Galilee, Lod, and Ramle.

 Ju-Hyun Park of Nodutol for Korean Community Development said that "the DPRK has never once recognized the Zionist tumor that goes by the name of Israel." Park, who uses the pronoun 'they,' added that PFLP founder George Habash received training in Pyongyang. Mohammed Nabulsi of the Palestinian Youth Movement said: "They tell us they want us to say democracy. We want to save our people. To hell with their democracy!" Manolo De Santos, the founder and executive-director of The People's Forum Participants, which purportedly has financial ties with the Chinese Communist Party, said: "We have to bring down this empire with one million cuts."

The conference was streamed live on BreakThrough News on YouTube. It is worth noting that the keynote speaker at the conference was Sana' Daqqa, widow of terrorist Walid Daqqa, who died from terminal illness while serving out a life sentence in an Israeli jail. Daqqa was part of a cell of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) comprised of Arab Israelis who kidnapped IDF soldier Moshe Tamam and murdered him. Other speakers at the conference were U.S. Representative Rashida Tlaib, mayor of Dearborn Abdullah Hamoud, and PFLP member Wisam Rafidee.

Mohammed Nabulsi: "They tell us they want us to save democracy. We want to save our people! To hell with their democracy!"

Crowd: "With our soul and our blood, we will redeem you, Al-Aqsa! With our soul and our blood, we will redeem you, Al-Aqsa!"

"Intifada, Intifada! Long live the Intifada!"

Ju-Hyun Park: "Zionism is using a very old playbook, but they have not learned the lesson that America has refused to learn, which is that that playbook doesn't work. After all those bombs, the DPRK – North Korea – is still standing to this day. After all the bombs, after all the massacres in Gaza, the Palestinian resistance is still there, in fact it is stronger. It has never been clearer than now that Zionism is not burying Gaza, they are simply digging their own grave. When we talk about our shared solidarity, what we mean is joint struggle. We don't just mean that we believe the same things. We don't just mean that we feel for each other. The DPRK has never once recognized the Zionist tumor that goes by the name of Israel. Throughout its history, the solidarity between the Korean and the Palestinian people has not only been moral but material. Where did George Habash receive his training? It was in Pyongyang."

Manolo De Los Santos: "Regardless of what our enemies say or don't say, we know more than ever that the Palestinian movement in the United States is serving as an anchor for our larger mass anti-imperialism movement."

[...]

"We have to bring down this empire with one million cuts, and those one million cuts have to come from every sector of struggle in this room."

[...]

Nadya Tannous: "We don't want recognition for the crimes against our people. We want justice, freedom, liberation, and we will not get distracted by a shortcoming, or a small offer, or a tiny concession – because we want the whole thing. It would be a dishonor to our people to accept anything less than that."
