Palestinians have called for 3 days of rage and demonstrations at US Embassies everywhere. It's a moral imperative for the international community to reject US aggression on Palestine. We demand the government of Canada to condemn Trump’s decision to move Israeli capital to Jerusalem and to withdraw its support for Israel.
