The 52nd Congress of the Communist Party of Britain resolved that:

The key priority of our international agenda must be the implementation of UN Resolution 194 calling for the creation of a sovereign, viable and independent Palestinian state alongside the state of Israel with the borders of 4 June 1967, Jerusalem as its capital and the right of return of refugees. In furtherance of this goal and to highlight the injustices perpetuated by the state of Israel, we will campaign for its universal boycott, including all things academic, cultural, economic, military and political.

We support the demands of the Palestinian people and their organisations for the restoration of all that has been taken from them, for rights and freedoms, the cessation of abuse and the release of all political detainees, including child prisoners. Our party supports the demand for UN recognition of Palestinian statehood and sees it as its particular duty to campaign for the release of the Palestine Legislative Council member and PLO leader, Marwan Barghouti. Our party also notes the continuing opposition within Israel to the creation of a sectarian Jewish state, the mass movement developing in the face of deteriorating economic conditions and the role of the Communist Party of Israel.
