Vancouver: Mark Nakba70 – End Canadian Complicity
15 May 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Join us for a picket and PEOPLES’ TRIAL on May 15, 2018 as we mark the 70th anniversary of the dispossession and dismemberment of the Palestinian people and nation. Known as the “Nakba”, over 400 Palestinian towns and villages were destroyed and/or depopulated in 1948. More than 750,000 Palestinians were driven from their homes and lands, resulting in a Palestinian refugee population now numbering almost 8 million. Canadian officials were complicit in this project in 1947-48 and they are complicit now in the continuing suffering of the Palestinian people. The Canadian government has yet to condemn the Israeli murder of over 40 unarmed Palestinians(and counting) in Gaza since March 30, a number which includes children and journalists. Gaza’s population is predominantly refugees expelled in 1948.
We charge successive Canadian governments with aiding and abetting continued Israeli war crimes against the Palestinian people.
We call for sanctions on Israel now and ask the Canadian people to intensify BDS campaigns.
Remember, Resist! Palestine will be Free!
