Toronto: Day of Rage – No to Annexation

July 4 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Saturday, 4 July
3:00 pm
Israeli Consulate

20 Bloor St East
Toronto, Ontario, Canada

NEW DATE: July 4th at 3 PM at the Israeli consulate at Bloor and Yonge in Toronto.

Please come out to support this Palestinian and youth-led demonstration of rage and rejection. There is a broad call for a “Day of Rage” by Al-Awda, The Palestine Right to Return Coalition and the Palestinian diaspora living in Toronto is answering to the call.

On July 1st, Israel is set to begin the formal annexation of 30% of the West Bank. The West Bank has been occupied since 1967 and the settlements that exist there already are illegal by international law. These further encroachments on Palestinian land are unacceptable. Annexation is nothing new in Occupied Palestine; the entire Zionist project has depended on land and resource theft, the displacement of indigenous Palestinians, military occupation, imprisonment, and colonial violence. The continued expansions of Jewish-only settlements on occupied land, the US embassy move to Jerusalem, the so-called “Deal of the Century”, and the formalization of annexation are the latest manifestations of Zionist colonial rule.

AS PALESTINIANS IN THE DIASPORA, WE STAND FIRMLY AGAINST THE CONTINUED ZIONIST ANNEXATION OF OUR LANDS.

WE ARE OUTRAGED AT ZIONIST COLONIAL EXPANSION AND VIOLENCE. WE HAVE NO TRUST IN THE SETTLER-COLONIAL STATES OF CANADA AND THE U.S. TO BE THE “HONEST BROKERS” OF PEACE. WE MUST TAKE LEADERSHIP IN OUR NATIONAL LIBERATION. WE WILL RETURN.
