Rally: Canada, Stop subsidizing Israeli Aparthed thru the Jewish National Fund
Queen Elizabeth Hotel, 900 Blvd René Levesque W.
Wednesday, 6 June 2007, 4:30pm to 6pm

Join us in a demonstration outside the JNF annual fundraiser at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel.

The Jewish National Fund restricts 93% of the land in Israel for Jewish citizens only. Most of this was previously Palestinian land. Arab citizens, who comprise 20% of the population, are prohibited from owning or leasing any of this land on the basis of their religion and ethnicity.

Despite this blatant discrimination, Canada grants the JNF charitable status.

We demand Canada end the JNF’s charitable status because the JNF supports Israeli Apartheid. Join us in a demonstration outside the JNF annual fundraiser. Join us to say: NO TO APARTHEID! STRIP THE JNF OF CHARITABLE STATUS!

Sponsored by: PAJU (Palestinian and Jewish Unity) and the JAAO (Jewish Alliance Against the Occupation)

This demo is part of a full week of action against Israeli apartheid and occupation leading to an international day of action on Saturday, June 9th.

This demonstration is also part of a growing boycott, divestment and sanctions movement against Israeli apartheid around the world.
