(en) Canada, Montreal, End Israeli Apartheid!!

Date Sat, 16 Dec 2006 21:57:58 +0200

Tomorrow: 2-4pm Sat. Dec. 16th Picket at St. Catherine and McGill College
(metro McGill) Over the past few months the actions of the Israeli army? cynically named in the summer months "Operation Summer Rain" and now bearing the title "Operation Autumn Clouds" have devastated the Palestinian population in Gaza. Since June 1, 2006, over 300 Palestinian civilians, including 89 children and 25 women, have been killed by the Israeli military. During the month of November alone, over 80 Palestinians have been
killed in the town of Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip. Two women were killed protesting in front of a mosque that was later destroyed, and 19 women, children and men were killed by Israeli artillery while asleep in their house.

The Gaza Strip is surrounded by a massive electric fence with all entry and exit controlled by the Israeli military.

Palestinians in the area have literally been confined to an open-air prison as Israel imposes a policy of enforced starvation on the population. According to the World Bank, unemployment levels reached 40% in the first quarter of 2006 and over 80% of the population are living below the poverty line.

But here in Canada, Prime Minister Harper and Foreign Minister Peter McKay have repeatedly refused to raise any condemnation of Israel's actions or to take any measures to prevent the continued killing of Palestinian civilians and the destruction of Palestinian livelihood.
Instead, Harper and his cabinet speak of the 'shared values' of Israel and Canada, or the 'measured response' of the Israeli war machine.

Come out on Dec. 16th to demand an immediate end to Canadian government support for Israel's apartheid policies in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Come out and let the people of Gaza know - they don't stand alone!

Organized by: International Solidarity Movement* - Montreal
