Defend Palestine - Boycott Israeli Apartheid! Protest
Jul 29, 2020 at 01:57 PM

Saturday, Aug 8, 2 pm

Israeli annexation continues to threaten Palestinians in the West Bank, including the most fertile agricultural land of the Jordan Valley, which is still slated for Israel’s latest land grab.

Join us to stand against Israel's annexation policy, the siege on Gaza, the mass imprisonment of Palestinians, the demolition of homes, the denial of Palestinian refugees’ right to return and further war crimes and crimes against humanity. Confront the continuation of over 72 years of land theft, dispossession, apartheid and genocide!

Join us SATURDAY, AUGUST 8 at 2:00 PM. We will gather at BROADWAY AND CAMBIE for a visibility picket before bringing our message to boycott apartheid to London Drugs and the BC Liquor Stores!

Rachel Corrie verdict exposes Israeli military mindset
Corrie's parents have not received justice, but their quest reveals the lie of the IDF's claim to be the world's 'most moral army'

Reporters covering Israel are routinely confronted with the question: why not call Hamas a terrorist organisation? It's a fair point. How else to describe blowing up families on buses but terrorism?

But the difficulty lies in what then to call the Israeli army when it, too, at particular times and places, has used indiscriminate killing and terror as a means of breaking Palestinian civilians. One of those places was Rafah, in the southern tip of the Gaza strip, where Rachel Corrie was crushed by a military bulldozer nine years ago as she tried to stop the Israeli army going about its routine destruction of Palestinian homes.
