The Popular Struggle Coordination Committee (PSCC) was formed by prominent activists in the Popular Committees from all over the Occupied Territories and across the Palestinian political spectrum. Popular Committees present a unique form of community based organization and resistance in the tradition of the first Palestinian intifada. These diverse, non-partisan committees lead community resistance to Israeli occupation in various forms, such as marches, strikes, demonstrations, direct actions and legal campaigns, as well as supporting the campaign of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS).
The Coordination Committee was formed to enhance a productive communication between the different Popular Committees: from the villages in Ramallah area – Bil’in, Ni’ilin, Nabi Saleh -, Bethlehem– al Maasara, Al Walaja -, of the Jordan Valley and South Mount Hebron to Tulkarem, Nablus, Qalqilya, all suffering of various aspects of the occupation. The committee aims to provide a base for strategic thinking on a wider scale, while retaining the independence and uniqueness of each Popular Committee.
Rooted in a stern belief in the power of the popular struggle to overthrow the Israel’s occupation, the Committees encourage and strengthen the grassroots Palestinian resistance and accommodate its needs. Hoping to echo the ANC’s strategy of UN-governability, the Coordination Committee strives to encourage and to support the emergence of new Committees and initiatives, regardless of their political affiliation.
The success of the popular struggle resistance also relies heavily on the support of the international community through BDS initiatives, financial aid, increased visibility and direct solidarity. The Coordination Committee works on developing international support networks and their direct ties to the struggle for liberty in Palestine.
