This event is taking place on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh peoples.

GAZA IS UNDER ATTACK. Over 150 Palestinians in Gaza have been killed – including children – and THOUSANDS wounded at the hands of Israeli missiles, bombs and fighter planes since Tuesday. While Palestinians are dying, Stephen Harper has once again reiterated his unconditional support of Israel, and MPs from across the Canadian political spectrum have been silent and complicit as the massacres continue.

Protests are being organized in cities around the world to respond to the ongoing assault on Palestine and the Palestinian people, including the bombing of Gaza and the killing of over 150 Palestinians by occupation forces; the murders of Palestinians (including 16-year-old Muhammad Abu Khdeir and 3-year old Mohammad Malaka, murdered brutally by Israeli settlers) and ongoing settler and military brutality; the mass arrests of over 900; and the raids, attacks, tear-gassing, invasions and closure that Palestinians are being subjected to.

Join us in Vancouver to stand in solidarity, to chant and rally together and break the silence and the deception being put forward by mainstream media!
