End the assault on Gaza! Break the siege! Boycott Israel! Free Palestine!
Israeli forces have now killed more than 1,000 Palestinians (including over 170 children), wounded over 6,000 and displaced over 200,000 people in Gaza. Protests are being organized in cities around the world to respond to Israeli war crimes and to call for an immediate military embargo on Israel.
As they did during Israel’s attack on Gaza in 2008-09 that killed over 1400 Palestinians, the Canadian government is once again giving its full, uncritical support to Israel. Canada has supported Israel’s illegal siege on Gaza since it began over 7 years ago – never calling on Israel to end the blockage to allow food, medicine, building supplies and other necessities into Gaza. Canada continues to engage in free trade, particularly arms deals, with Israel. Canada is deeply complicit in the crimes being committed in Palestine.
The Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid is calling on all people of conscience to take action against Israel’s war crimes and Canadian support for these massacres.
Join us on the streets! Bring flags, banners, noisemakers and your voices!
