Facebook Event

Join us for a flash picket (with appropriate physical distancing) in Vancouver to show our clear opposition to Israel’s new annexation plans.

Bring your keffiyeh to use as a mask and come out to be part of the cross-Canada and global actions to say NO Israeli annexation, apartheid and occupation!

Free Palestine!

Since the signing of the defunct Oslo Accords, Israel has at least tripled the number of illegal settlers, pushing Palestinians off their lands, crippling Palestinian agriculture and development, and then killing or injuring Palestinians who dare to protest. Palestinians demand justice now, and have issued a call for international sanctions against Israel.
Canadian PM Trudeau recently claimed to “deplore” Israel’s annexation plans and said they “are going to delay any prospect of lasting peace in the Middle East”. If the Canadian government is genuine in this belated expression of opposition to Israel’s illegal policies, then the absolute minimum expected is to impose sanctions on the Israeli government until it respects international law. Actions speak louder than words!

As Palestinian dispossession (Nakba) continues, our struggle will continue!

Organized by Canada Palestine Association, BDS Vancouver-Coast Salish Territories

Gaza's Ark organizers remain determined after attack
Gaza's Ark was badly damaged and partially sunk by a large explosion  at about 3:45 AM Gaza time on April 29th. No-one was injured. Mustafa Abu Awad, the guard who was on duty at the time, was taken to the hospital for tests and he has now been discharged.

The Ark was in the port of Gaza being readied to put to sea in June. Whether and when the boat can be repaired is something we will not know for sure until it can be pulled out of the water for inspection.

Awad said he had been warned to leave the area by an anonymous caller. "I was [sleeping] near the boat and someone phoned me -- an unidentified caller. I answered and he told me: 'Mustafa, leave the boat right now because we are going to blow it up.'"
