"Operation Protective Edge", the most recent Israeli massacre of Gazans, began on July 7, 2014 and ended on August 26, 2014. Over 2,200 Palestinians were killed, the vast majority civilians, by 6,000 air strikes and over 50,000 tank and artillery shells, four times the explosives used in Operation Cast Lead. According to Mary McGown, Chair of the UN Human Rights Council Commission on Gaza “the extent of the devastation and human suffering was unprecedented and will affect generations to come”.

We cannot allow this episode in 67 years of brutal occupation and violence to be forgotten. Please join us.

Current organizers and endorsers: Boycott Israel Apartheid Campaign, Canada Palestine Association, CanPalNet, Independent Jewish Voices, United Network for Justice and Peace in Palestine and Israel.
