As 2014 draws to a close, the Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid invites you to join us for a public forum to mark annual International Human Rights DaDec 14 HR Dayy where we will critically address key issues of injustice that have prevailed over the past year. Through a film screening and speakers panel, the year will be examined through the lens of confronting apartheids and racisms while also connecting across forms of popular resistance and global solidarity movements. From the Israeli state massacre in Gaza last summer, to the resurgence of Islamophobia and “anti-terrorism” laws after the October shooting on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, to the non-indictment of the police officer responsible for the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson it is increasingly urgent to share analysis, make connections across these events, understand the histories they are located in, and to build effective and collective ties for solidarity and change.
