7 April, Ottawa: Hands off Al-Aqsa! Emergency Protest


In the past two nights, Zionist Occupation Forces stormed the al-Aqsa mosque and brutally shot, assaulted, detained and forcibly removed Palestinian Muslim worshippers. The worshippers were in al-Aqsa performing i`tikaf, a part of Ramadan’s rituals where Muslims remain in mosques overnight to pray. The desecration of one of Jerusalem’s holiest sites during Ramadan is a yearly occurrence that depicts the brutality of the occupation. The occupation has currently detained over 400 Palestinians, mostly youth, who steadfastly confronted the occupation forces.

We call on our community members and allies in Ottawa and Gatineau to join us this Friday at 2:30 p.m. at the Human Rights Memorial (220 Elgin Street) to affirm that Al-Aqsa belongs to the steadfast Palestinian people and to uplift our land defenders.

بالروح بالدم نفديك يا اقصى
