22 July, Vancouver: Stand for Palestine: Shut Elbit Down!

Join us on Saturday, July 22 at 2 pm at Denman and Davie in Vancouver to Stand for Palestine with information, music and speeches, before we proceed to Scotiabank with a message: Shut Elbit Down!

On July 3, the Israeli occupation forces attacked and invaded Jenin city and refugee camp; on July 11, occupation forces kicked the Sub Laban family out of their home in Jerusalem to make way for illegal colonial settlers.

Meanwhile, Canadian foreign policy continues to favour the Israeli occupation while Palestinians are struggling for justice, return and liberation.

Even more, one of Canada’s largest Banks — Scotiabank — is the top foreign investor in Elbit Systems, the Israeli weapons manufacturer that produces 85% of Israel’s armed drones, used to assassinate Palestinians from Jenin to Gaza, and marketed as “battle-tested.”

In Britain, 6 Palestine Action activists are imprisoned for their actions to challenge Elbit systems and shut down the war machine. Saturday, July 22 is also an international day of action in solidarity with Palestine Action prisoners: 22 July: Join the Day of Action to Free Palestine Action Prisoners!

Come out to stand with Palestine on July 22, 2023 in Vancouver! Free Palestine, from the river to the sea!
