Palestinians hold banners and flags as they march during the launch of a campaign supporting a bid for Palestinian statehood recognition at the U.N, in the West Bank city of Ramallah on Sep. 8, 2011. A member of the campaign handed a letter intended for the U.N. secretary-general ahead of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's bid to gain statehood recognition at the U.N. later this month. The banner reads: The people want Palestinian statehood membership at the U.N. Photo by Issam Rimawi
