Balfour Centenary: Britain’s Broken Promise


A public meeting of 1,200 people at Central Hall Westminster on 31 October heard politicians from all parties call on the British Government to recognise Palestine as a sovereign state.


The meeting was hosted by the Balfour Project on the centenary of the Balfour Declaration. Its theme was ‘Britain’s Broken Promise: Time for a New Approach’.
