About Us

The Pan-African Palestine Solidarity Network (PAPSN) is a pan-African network of civil society organizations, activists and groups in solidarity with the liberation struggle of the Palestinian people.

The network was formed in June 2021 after discussions among different Palestinian solidarity organizations on the African continent.

Presently, the network includes members from some 20 countries across the continent.

We uphold the African Charter of Peoples and Human Rights, which in its preamble commits us “to eliminate colonialism, neo-colonialism, apartheid, zionism”.
