Status for Omar- A Call for Donations

7 août 2018 | معتمد Solidarity, Canada, Palestine

For nearly a decade, Omar Ben Ali- a stateless Palestinian refugee- has been living in Montreal. Following the refusal of his refugee claim in 2008, Omar has been left in limbo- unable to obtain status, but unable to return to Palestine. In July 2017, Omar launched the #StatusforOmar campaign, demanding that he be granted permanent residency on humanitarian and compassionate grounds be accepted and that he be allowed to reunite with his wife and seven children, from whom he has been separated for the past ten years.

Last month, Omar received news that his wife and children must complete medical examinations and submit additional documentation as part of the processing of his humanitarian and compassionate grounds application. Costs for the medical examinations, for passport renewals and for police certificates for family members above the age of 18 are expected to surpass $3,000. As the sole source of financial support for his family, Omar is unable to cover these expenses alone.

Tadamon is calling for donations to cover the costs required for the documents and exams. Below are some ways to donate:

Eight years into the Syrian uprising, the grassroots movement, the local councils and the ongoing revolutionary struggle are misunderstood or denied outright by many (even on the left). The military strikes carried out in April by the US, the UK and France against Syrian state targets were cynical and opportunistic actions. They must rightly be condemned. Not, as some do, on strict anti-imperialist grounds, opposing only western intervention in Syria, or, from another standpoint, in blind, apologetic support of the dictatorial Syrian regime, and its allies, Russia and Iran. Such perspectives go hand in hand with a denial of the Syrian popular revolt where, in current debates, support for the brutal Asad regime is justified due to the presence of Al-Qaeda, ISIS and other reactionary groups. Rather, a position on Syria, and on political actions in the Syrian conflict, must start with a recognition of the people’s struggle and the violent repression to which it has been subject at the hands of regime forces (responsible for the overwhelming majority of the hundreds of thousands of civilian deaths). It must also listen to the voices from the Syrian uprising calling for dignity and freedom and respect and support the revolutionary agency and autonomy of the people of Syria.

In many ways, prisons are foundational to colonialism and apartheid, serving to remove people from their communities and repress movements for self-determination.

For a World Without Walls: Stories of Resistance to Border Violence

    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.

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.
