Canadian Union of Postal Workers joins the campaign against Israeli apartheid!

    April 2008.


    Sign on Statement and Appeal for Solidarity.

April 2008: We the undersigned organizations congratulate the Canadian Union of Postal workers (CUPW) for joining the international boycott of Israeli apartheid. We call on workers and labour unions worldwide to join CUPW in creating a strong and effective labour movement in solidarity with struggles against Israeli apartheid and violence.

At the national convention of CUPW, representing over fifty thousand workers across Canada, a strong majority of delegates voted for a resolution in support of the international campaign of boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israeli apartheid.


Israel is suppressing a secret it must face

    How did a Jewish state founded 60 years ago
    end up throwing filth at cowering Palestinians?


    by Johann Hari, the Independent, Monday, April 28th.

When you hit your 60th birthday, most of you will guzzle down your hormone replacement therapy with a glass of champagne and wonder if you have become everything you dreamed of in your youth. In a few weeks, the state of Israel is going to have that hangover.

She will look in the mirror and think – I have a sore back, rickety knees and a gun at my waist, but I’m still standing. Yet somewhere, she will know she is suppressing an old secret she has to face. I would love to be able to crash the birthday party with words of reassurance. Israel has given us great novelists like Amos Oz and A.B. Yehoshua, great film-makers like Joseph Cedar, great scientific research into Alzheimer’s, and great dissident journalists like Amira Hass, Tom Segev and Gideon Levy to expose her own crimes.


Jewish people stand for free speech on the CALEB/Tadamon! conference

    April 20th, 2008: To the administration at Collège de Bois-de-Boulogne


    Mesdames, Monsieurs,

We write to urge you not to cancel a joint conference by Comité d’action pour la lutte étudiante boulonnaise (CALEB) and Tadamon! April 21 on Israel and Palestine. Behind this censorship attempt appears to be a false belief that critics of Israel are anti-Semitic, or anti-Jewish to be precise. The Jewish people in Quebec and Canada are divided on the issues of Israel and Palestine. There are many Jewish people like us who support open discussion and activities for Palestinian human rights, and oppose the Israeli occupation and suppression of the Palestinian people.

Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) escalated its war crimes in the Gaza Strip disregarding the lives of civilians, who are paying the price of this escalation. Last Friday, 9 Palestinians were killed in the Gaza Strip. Seven of the victims, including 6 civilians that included 2 children, were killed by IOF excessive use of lethal force in El-Bureij refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip. In addition, 27 people, most of them civilians that included 12 children, were injured.


A different vision for Israel

Diana Ralph grew up in a progressive Jewish family in postwar America. Her father’s work as a lawyer at the Nuremberg war crime trials, when she was still an infant, cemented his support for the state of Israel.

But when his daughter, as a young woman, questioned Israeli policies after the Six Day War in 1967, she saw a side of her father she hadn’t witnessed before.

On March 27, 2008 Students Against Israeli Apartheid at York University (SAIA-York) organized a rally in Vari Hall (the central campus space) in order to: (1) commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba, (2) call for an end to the starvation policies and siege imposed on Gaza by the Israeli apartheid regime with Canadian complicity and (3) demand that the university hold a debate on the boycott of Israeli academic institutions that are complicit in the perpetuation of apartheid.
