Toronto Raptors: Please #SkipTheTrip to Israel PDF Print E-mail
Jun 18, 2019 at 12:00 AM

On June 13, 2019, the Toronto Raptors won the NBA (National Basketball Association) Championship. A few days earlier, news had broken in the Israeli media that one of the team’s billionaire co-owners, Larry Tannenbaum, had made an announcement in April of this year, that if the team won, he would take them on a trip to Israel.

...

The reaction to this proposed trip was, initially, shock by progressive fans and then a commitment to push back on such a blatant attempt to sports-wash Israel’s war crimes. The Canadian BDS Coalition started a petition on June 14, calling on team members to not be part of such infamy, a petition that has already gathered over 3000 signatures to date.

An open letter was also sent the following day to the Raptors by BDS Vancouver-Coast Salish’s coordinator, asking them to use their stature and influence to stand with Palestinians in their struggle for freedom and liberation.

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) was created in 1950 to carry out direct relief and works programmes for Palestine refugees, and is unique in terms of its long-standing commitment to this vulnerable group of refugees.

 

Canada has been a prominent supporter of UNRWA since its inception, but under the previous government, was the only donor to have ever withdrawn funding.
