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

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.

    #BringBissanHome

For over four months, Bissan Eid, a 24 year old Concordia graduate student has been prevented from leaving the Palestinian territory of Gaza. She is in urgent need of support from the Canadian government to secure an exit visa from the Israeli government.

In June 2016, Bissan, a Canadian citizen since 2005, travelled to Gaza to get married and to visit her aging grandparents. When she tried to travel back to Canada, she was prevented from leaving due to the slow processing of her exit visa by the Israeli authorities, who seldom prioritize applications of the Palestinians from Gaza who hold other passports.

For over 80 years and since the Arab revolt in Palestine in 1936, the Palestinian people have been struggling against the seizure of their land in a Zionist colonial project that began even before the British Mandate on Palestinian territory. Since the “Nakba” (Catastrophe) of 1948, the destruction, exploitation and control of Palestine by the State of Israel is one of the most recent cases of Western colonialism on indigenous lands.

Despite condemnation by the “international community” for its illegality, including by the United Nations, Israeli expansionism continues through the violent bombing of civilian neighbourhoods, the forced displacement of the Palestinian population, and ongoing detention, imprisonment and killings – thus making Israel an “eternal dissident” on human rights.
