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.

The Haifa District court ruled earlier today that the Israeli military is not responsible for killing American activist Rachel Corrie, and that Corrie was to blame for her own death.

Even when she saw the mount of earth moving towards her, she did not move away. The accident was caused by the deceased,” said Israeli Judge Oded Gershon, as he read out a summary of the 62-page ruling in front of a packed courthouse and with Rachel’s mother Cindy, father Craig and sister Sarah sitting in the front row.
