CALL TO ACTION: Stop City Hall from equating criticism of Israel with hate speech
Jul 19, 2019 at 04:27 PM
first-ever motion of its kind at a Canadian municipal level is asking the City of Vancouver to adopt a definition that would equate antisemitism with criticism of the state of Israel. The motion introduced by NPA Councillor Sarah Kirby-Yung will go before Council on July 23 and hear from speakers on July 24th. Help us stop this motion by taking action now! 

The BC Civil Liberties Association is opposed to this motion and concerned about the stifling of freedom of expression as a result. The Federal NDP has also opposed its adoption by the federal government, even though unfortunately the Liberals announced recently that they were adopting it as part of an anti-racism strategy. That being said, the definition has never gone before the Parliament and no law was changed; but Israel’s lobby groups are hailing it as a victory as it will make it easier for Canadian authorities to demonize campaigners for justice in Palestine and critics of Israel’s state ideology, Zionism. Now the Israel lobby groups are training their guns on local governments, police departments and universities.
