Saturday, Aug 8, 2 pm

Israeli annexation continues to threaten Palestinians in the West Bank, including the most fertile agricultural land of the Jordan Valley, which is still slated for Israel’s latest land grab.

Join us to stand against Israel's annexation policy, the siege on Gaza, the mass imprisonment of Palestinians, the demolition of homes, the denial of Palestinian refugees’ right to return and further war crimes and crimes against humanity. Confront the continuation of over 72 years of land theft, dispossession, apartheid and genocide!

Join us SATURDAY, AUGUST 8 at 2:00 PM. We will gather at BROADWAY AND CAMBIE for a visibility picket before bringing our message to boycott apartheid to London Drugs and the BC Liquor Stores!
