Stop Israel’s illegal annexation of the West Bank!
Defend international law. Defend Palestinian human rights.

3:00 p.m. EST
Hamilton City Hall
71 Main Street West, Hamilton, ON, L8P 4Y5

Please join this urgent rally to oppose Israel’s annexation of the West Bank. Israel has announced plans to begin annexing the West Bank in July, with the full backing of the Trump administration. Any attempt at annexation would violate international law and numerous United Nations resolutions. It would also further entrench Israel’s illegal occupation and undermine any possibility for a peaceful resolution.

We are coming together to organize this rally in an effort to pressure the Canadian government to condemn Israel’s impending annexation of parts of the West Bank. We are also trying to pressure the Canadian government to take concrete actions—such as imposing sanctions against Israel, and suspending the Canada-Israel Free Trade Agreement—if Israel continues its move towards annexation.

We invite you to join us on Sunday. Here is how you can help:

– Share this call-out widely. Forward to family, friends, and organizations in your networks.
– If you’re a member of an organization that supports human rights, peace, and justice, please reach out to us to endorse this event sphr@mcmaster.ca!
– Bring your own Palestinian flags, keffiyehs, and homemade signs
– If you can’t join the rally in person, post a photo of yourself on social media holding a sign to support the rally. Use the hashtag #StopAnnexation.
– Reach out to your MP. https://www.cjpme.org/sign_the_pledge

Please note: In light of COVID-19, we will be practicing physical distancing at the rally and there will be a limited number of masks available. We urge participants to come wearing masks.
