Join us to picket the Jewish National Fund Dinner which is celebrating the “70th anniversary of the state of Israel”. The racist and discriminatory policies of the JNF have been well documented and are of particular concern here in Canada due to the creation of “Canada Park” on the ruins of 3 Palestinian villages in the occupied West Bank.
As in previous years, the JNF is attempting to hide its policies and history behind a charitable project, this time to “Help Improve the Lives of Children with Disabilities”. The grotesque irony of this particular project at this time, as Israeli snipers maim and disable hundreds of Palestinians in Gaza, including children, doesn’t seem to bother the $300/ticket gala-goers. UNICEF stated on May 16, 2018, that “since 30 March 2018, over 1,000 children have been injured in violence in the Gaza Strip. Many of these injuries are severe and potentially life-altering, including some resulting in amputations.”
Call on the Canadian Government to revoke the tax deductible status for the JNF, and stop being complicit in these WAR CRIMES.
Stop maiming Palestinian children.
No to 70 years of celebrating Palestinian dispossession!
No to “greenwashing” ethnic cleansing.
