US Palestinians Give ‘Pink Slip’ to PA

Members of a Palestinian community in the US have held protests in Washington, calling for the termination of the Palestinian Authority (PA).

The US Palestinian Community Network gathered outside the office of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) to present a symbolic “pink slip” to the PA in a call for its termination, Press TV correspondent in Washington reported.

The call comes more than a month after the release of the so-called “Palestine Papers” which exposed major concessions offered by the PA to Israel during closed door meetings.

Protesters made a list of other demands from the PLO which they tried to deliver in person but were met with closed doors, our correspondent added.

In January, some 1,600 pages of secret "Palestine Papers" were published, revealing secret US-backed negotiations between Israel and the PA between 2000 and 2010.

According to the document, PA leaders were prepared to compromise on key issues at the heart of the six-decade Israeli-Palestinian conflict, including the right of return for Palestinian refugees and the status of illegally annexed East al-Quds (Jerusalem), which Palestinians deem as the capital of their future state.

The documents drew wrath among Palestinians who blame the Ramallah-based PA leaders for privately preparing to compromise their principles while publicly presenting different positions.
