Office of Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould, 104-1245 W. Broadway, Vancouver

FB event

Join us for a picket and PEOPLES' TRIAL on May 15, 2018 as we mark the 70th anniversary of the dispossession and dismemberment of the Palestinian people and nation. Known as the "Nakba", over 400 Palestinian towns and villages were destroyed and/or depopulated in 1948. More than 750,000 Palestinians were driven from their homes and lands, resulting in a Palestinian refugee population now numbering almost 8 million. Canadian officials were complicit in this project in 1947-48 and they are complicit now in the continuing suffering of the Palestinian people. The Canadian government has yet to condemn the Israeli murder of over 40 unarmed Palestinians(and counting) in Gaza since March 30, a number which includes children and journalists. Gaza's population is predominantly refugees expelled in 1948.

We charge successive Canadian governments with aiding and abetting continued Israeli war crimes against the Palestinian people.

We call for sanctions on Israel now and ask the Canadian people to intensify BDS campaigns.
Remember, Resist! Palestine will be Free!

Special podcast on Voice of Palestine on May 15, as part of an International Radio Marathon for Nakba Day

And also coming up later on June 3, Stop the JNF picket, Vancouver

This year’s JNF Gala will “celebrate” the 70 years of Palestinian dispossession as well as fundraising for the Jewish National Fund, which has built the infamous Canada Park in the occupied West Bank.

More details to be announced soon.

Organizers of the Canadian Boat to Gaza (CBG), the Tahrir, lost contact with the French flagged boat Dignité from the Freedom Flotilla II, at 10:10AM local time when the boat was in international waters north of Arish, Egypt, and are deeply concerned for those aboard, given the likelihood the vessel has been boarded by the Israeli Navy.  The Dignity had managed to get out of Greek territorial waters and was sailing towards Gaza. The Israeli navy recently threatened to intercept any ships heading to Gaza.
