This summer brought Omar the warmth and sunshine that he thought he would receive almost eleven years ago, when he landed in so-called Canada as a Palestinian refugee. Instead, he went through many years of stress and uncertainty, not unlike what other migrants face in Canada. Omar had left behind his wife and seven children back in Jenin, Palestine and had hoped for them to join him soon in Canada.

Join SOGEECOM and Tadamon for a Palestinian buffet, followed by a screening of Roadmap to Apartheid. This event is taking place as part of the 15th Israeli Apartheid Week.

In this award-winning documentary film, directors Ana Nogueira and Eron Davidson establish parallels between apartheid in South Africa and Israel, and highlight the physical and psychological consequences of these methods of segregations on oppressed populations.

To support this analogy, Ana Nogueira and Eron Davidson filmed moments of Palestinian daily life and drew upon archives from the era of apartheid in South Africa.

The screening will take place in the original English audio, with French subtitles.

Status for Omar- A Call for Donations

August 7th, 2018 | Posted in Canada, Palestine, Solidarity

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:

* By Online Donation

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