For the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian people

Join us in a demonstration to demand a Free Palestine and an End to Israeli Apartheid.

Sunday December 2nd

Philips Square.
(Metro Mcgill).


This month alone, Israel has murdered over 150 Palestinians in Gaza in a brutal and merciless 7-day offensive by land, sea, and air. Gaza, a strip of land measuring the size of the city of Montreal at approximately 360km2, is inhabited by 1.7 million people; half of whom are children. Even in the face of a multilaterally brokered ceasefire, Israel continues its indiscriminate killing and Israeli authorities maintain the suffocating blockade on the coastal enclave.

This most recent attack on Gaza joins the ongoing Israeli crushing of the civilian population in the West bank in an effort to ruthlessly silence any form of resistance to the usurpation of Palestinian land. Even after forcibly occupying 80% of Palestine through the expulsion of almost all the indigenous population, and the refusal to adhere to international law in allowing them the right to return; Israel continues to build settlements and to confiscate Palestinian land.

It is clear that Israel has no intention of dismantling its settlements, ending the occupation, and living in peace next to a Palestinian sovereign state. In the last two months, Israel has launched unprecedented attacks on the Palestinian authority in order for the latter to refrain from demanding non-member state status at the UN, a move that follows peaceful resolution methods including diplomacy and multilateral actions.

Today, Israel, with its unconditional American, Canadian, and general Western support, continues to occupy the Palestinian lands, deny the Palestinian refugees’ right of return, and oppress Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank, as well as its own Palestinian citizens. Only International sanctions are going to stop the next massacre.

This is not about security and self-defense. This is about ethnic cleansing, apartheid, and ongoing colonialism!
We demand a political solution that targets the fundamental causes of the situation:

•End the cruel and illegal siege on Gaza.
•End the occupation and Israeli system of apartheid.
•Take down the apartheid wall.
•Respect international laws for the right of return.

Israel is with-holding over 100 million in tax revenues they promised to pay Palestine in 2013 . Do you have a petition one can sign decrying this outrageous act not to mention the threat of building 3000 settlement homes !!!
