Week of Solidarity with the Peoples of Non-Self-Governing Territories

Week of Solidarity with the Peoples of Non-Self-Governing Territories

Begins May 25
In 1999 the General Assembly of the United Nations asked the special committee on decolonization to honor the week beginning May 25 as the Week of Solidarity with the Peoples of Non-Self-Governing Territories. In 1972 the United Nations established this same week as the Week of Solidarity with the Colonial Peoples of Southern Africa and Guinea (Bissau) and Cape Verde Fighting For Freedom, Independence and Equal Rights. They chose May 25 as the starting date since it had already been established as African Liberation Day.
