    Facebook Event

Following the call of organizations in Palestine and Mexico, Tadamon is joining the Global Day of Action for a World without Walls.

Almost 70 walls across all continents are enforcing state control. They rip through people’s lives and lands – denying their basic freedom of movement, and expanding state violence, causing thousands of deaths every year. Walls fortify borders, separate the rich from the poor, and the powerful from the oppressed. They are monuments of expulsion, of exclusion and of exploitation. November 9th marks fifteen years since construction began on Israel’s apartheid wall, which aims to annex up to 60% of the West Bank and encircle Palestinians on 13% of their territory.

    When: September 14th at 5:30pm
    Where: Metro Jean Talon
    at the corner of Jean Talon and Chateaubriand
    Tionni’tiotiah:ke, Kanien’kehá:ka territory
    Facebook event

This is a family friendly community gathering.

For nearly a decade, Omar Ben Ali – a stateless Palestinian refugee – has been living and working in Montreal. Despite the very real dangers he faced living under Israeli apartheid, his refugee claim was refused in 2008. Yet, he has been unable to return to Palestine, as Israel has refused to allow his deportation to the occupied West Bank. As such, he has been left in limbo : unable to obtain status, but unable to return to Palestine and reunite with his wife and seven children.

Media Advisory: Bissan Eid still stuck in Gaza, she needs support, not discrimination from the Canadian government

May 31st, 2017 | Posted in Canada, Palestine, Solidarity

Montreal, May 31, 2017 – Canada’s Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has made very public pronouncements about diversity being Canada’s “strength” and the fundamental humanity of all Canadians despite origin or religious background. Yet, Canadian citizens Bissan and her baby Sarah, remain stuck in Gaza under Israeli siege. This is a profound illustration of the double-standard of citizenship that the Canadian government applies.

Solidarity with Bissan Eid- An Update and Call for Support

May 23rd, 2017 | Posted in Canada, Palestine, Solidarity

bissanflying

On May 11th, Bissan Eid gave birth to Sarah- a healthy, beautiful baby girl. Despite the difficult circumstances faced by Bissan and by medical workers in Gaza due to the Israeli military siege, local healthcare workers struggled to support Bissan to the best of their abilities and Sarah was born safely.

Having first requested support from the Canadian government in early 2017, the Eid family issued a public appeal in April 2017. Bissan’s struggle to return home was met with the support of the Concordia Student Union (CSU) and the Graduate Student Association (GSA), along with many workers and faculty at Concordia University. A petition launched last month received over 850 signatures, while a Concordia-specific open letter obtained 165 signatories from the Concordia community. Public statements have been published by the School of Community and Public Affairs, the Simone de Beauvoir Institute, and the Concordia University Part-Time Faculty Association, while Amnesty International Quebec has also called for the Canadian government to take action in support of Bissan.
