Stop the Attacks on GAZA: Actions across Canada November 16-18

Region:

Below are listed a number of protests organized in communites across the country. This information is being relayed courtesy of the Canadian Peace Alliance.

Justice for Palestine
End the Attacks on Gaza

Israel has launched another offensive against the people of Gaza. In 2009, during “Operation Cast Lead” the Israelis killed more than 1400 Palestinian civilians, a third of which were children. They appear intent on replicating that brutality again. Airstrikes have already killed more than 10 civilians and wounded 20 others and the Israelis are now warning that a full-scale ground assault is possible.

The Canadian Peace Alliance condemns this collective punsihment of the people of Gaza who have endured a life under seige for years. We call on our member groups and supporters to endorse and join demonstrations across Canada in opposition to these brutal attacks.

The Government of Canada has already stated that they unconditionally support the state of Isreal in its plans to murder Palestinian civilians. It is time for the people of Canada and the official opposition to stand on the side of peace and justice and condemn these illegal attacks.
