On 13/11 in Montreal people gathered at Occupy Montreal/Occupons Montréal to protest the Israeli military raid on the Freedom Waves flotilla action that challenged the Israeli military blockade on Gaza via the Mediterranean sea.

This action took place at Occupy Montreal/Occupons Montréal to highlight the connection between struggles for social & economics justice in Quebec and the Palestinian struggle for freedom. In North America politicians who are moving to enforce socially violent austerity economics, like the Conservative government in Canada, are the very same policy makers and politicians who continue to back the illegal Israeli military siege on the Palestinian people in Gaza.

Just to clarify, the UN concluded that the blockade of Gaza is legal, and that the Turkish government handled the situation with more impropriety than the Israeli response.
