(Hosted by Canada Palestine Association, Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights-UBC, Vancouver Peace Council, ILPS Canada, Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network) The Trump Administration has just unveiled the details of its “Deal Of The Century”. This plan includes, but is not limited to:
  • Giving legitimacy to illegal Israeli settlements in Palestine
  • Annexing parts of the West Bank (including the Jordan Valley)
  • Granting Palestinians a “state” made up of non-contiguous cantons similar to the Bantustans under apartheid in South Africa.
  • Liquidating the Palestinian right of return.
These are just some of the aspects from this plan that has already been rejected by the Palestinian people and its leadership at large.

The road to Palestinian freedom lays first and foremost in addressing Israel’s regime of settler-colonialism, occupation and apartheid, in Israel dismantling its illegal settlements as well as recognition of the right for return.

Only consistent pressure on Israel, including through support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, can bring about lasting and meaningful change for both Israelis and Palestinians.

Eight Jewish Canadian women who were arrested while holding a protest inside the Israeli consulate have been released.

The RCMP arrested and handcuffed the women, who were staging a sit-in protest against the ongoing Israeli assault on Gaza inside the consulate at 180 Bloor St. W. The women were held briefly inside a paddy wagon, but were not charged and were released.
