In May 2017, B’nai Brith viciously attacked NDP Leadership candidate Niki Ashton for speaking at a rally for Palestinian human rights in Montreal this past weekend.

Niki Ashton has stood up for Palestinian human rights; now it’s our turn to stand up for her.

To Ms. Niki Ashton:

WHEREAS you have openly supported Palestinian human rights throughout your career,

WHEREAS you have been a long-time champion for social, economic, and environmental justice throughout the world,

WHEREAS B’nai Brith and others have sought to attack and discredit you for your courageous stances,

THEREFORE, we, the undersigned petition you to continue your courageous work, and to find renewed strength to continue your fight for justice in Canada and abroad:

For Immediate Release: September 25, 2013
