*** UPDATE: With the attacks on Gaza of 5 August 2022 it is urgent that we come out to take a stand for Palestine and show our support for the Palestinian people in Gaza. Join us tomorrow at 5 pm on Saturday, August 6 – bring signs & flags! ***
We had already planned an outreach stand to take place on Saturday, August 6. Now, with the attacks on Gaza escalating and the killing of 10 Palestinians, including 5-year-old girl Alaa Qaddoum, we want to make it clear that people in Vancouver stand with Palestine and the Palestinian people — despite the ongoing policies of the Canadian government that continue to provide cover for Israeli crimes and engage in arms deals with the occupation.
All organizaions and individuals are invited to join us for an emergency stand for Gaza on Saturday, August 6 at 5 pm at the Davie/Denman corner in Vancouver. Join us to speak out for Palestine!
This event is taking place on the unceded and occupied territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) peoples. The organizers stand in full solidarity and support of Indigenous sovereignty and self-determination and with the ongoing movements to defend land, water and Indigenous peoples from plunder and settler colonialism.
