Revoke the tax deductible status for the JNF PDF Print E-mail
May 23, 2018 at 02:54 PM

Sunday, June 3rd, 5:00pm sharp
Four Seasons Hotel, 791 W. Georgia (at Howe), Vancouver
Facebook Event Page


Join us to picket the Jewish National Fund Dinner which is celebrating the "70th anniversary of the state of Israel". The racist and discriminatory policies of the JNF have been well documented and are of particular concern here in Canada due to the creation of “Canada Park” on the ruins of 3 Palestinian villages in the occupied West Bank.

As in previous years, the JNF is attempting to hide its policies and history behind a charitable project, this time to "Help Improve the Lives of Children with Disabilities". The grotesque irony of this particular project at this time, as Israeli snipers maim and disable hundreds of Palestinians in Gaza, including children, doesn't seem to bother the $300/ticket gala-goers. UNICEF stated on May 16, 2018, that “since 30 March 2018, over 1,000 children have been injured in violence in the Gaza Strip. Many of these injuries are severe and potentially life-altering, including some resulting in amputations.”

Call on the Canadian Government to revoke the tax deductible status for the JNF, and stop being complicit in these WAR CRIMES.

Stop maiming Palestinian children.
No to 70 years of celebrating Palestinian dispossession!
No to "greenwashing" ethnic cleansing.

Organized by BDS Vancouver-Coast Salish, Canada Palestine Association, Int’l League of Peoples Struggle Canada, Vancouver Peace Council.

Vancouver Women in Black Vigils 

Vancouver Women in Black stand in vigil the fourth Monday of each month, Robson St. side of the VAG from 5-6pm. All are welcome (men too!); please wear as much black as you can. Women in Black calls for
  • An end to violence, racism, and all forms of terrorism that harm innocent civilians.
  • An end to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza and a just peace for all peoples in the region.
  • An end to all human rights abuses in the occupied territories
ONLY AN END TO THE OCCUPATION WILL BRING PEACE
A Statement to the Press from the Free Gaza Movement
Forty-six international human rights workers are now sailing to Gaza through international waters with one overriding goal: to break the Israeli siege that Israel has imposed on the civilian population of Gaza.  Any action designed to harm civilians constitutes collective punishment (in the Palestinians’ case, for voting the “wrong” way) and is both illegal under international law and profoundly immoral.  Our mission is to expose the illegality of Israel’s actions, and to break through the siege in order to express our solidarity with the suffering people of Gaza (and of the occupied Palestinian territory as a whole) and to create a free and regular channel between Gaza and the outside world.
