 Canada Must Stop Annexation

As July 1st draws closer, the Canadian government has been mostly quiet about Israel’s potential annexation of large parts of the West Bank. This despite the fact that a recent EKOS poll co-sponsored by IJV found that 74% of Canadians oppose this horrible plan, and 42% support imposing sanctions if Israel goes ahead with it. 

In an attempt to avert the injustice of Israel’s annexation of additional Palestinian land, IJV is teaming up with Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East, the United Church of Canada, the Canadian Labour Congress and the Mennonite Central Committee to ask MPs to sign a pledge urging the Canadian government to take action on annexation. Can you help us convince your MP to sign the pledge?

Here is a non-exhaustive list of upcoming demonstrations against annexation happening in Canada:

Vancouver – June 26, 5pm

Toronto – June 27, 3pm

Montreal – June 27, 4pm

Ottawa – June 28, 3:30pm

St-Catherines – July 1, 2pm

Toronto – July 1, 6pm
