This Canada Day – Wednesday, July 1st at 2 p.m.– Join a Rally at St. Catharines City Hall in downtown St. Catharines, Ontario
An Invite to All from the Niagara Movement for Justice in Palestine-Isreal
Posted June 30th, 2020 on Niagara At Large
Niagara, Ontario – On July 1st, the Government of Israel could start its annexation of Palestinian.
The Niagara Movement for Justice in Palestine-Israel (NMJPI) invites you show resistance against this unconscionable act of oppression of the People of Palestine and to insist that our Government acts according to the wishes of 74% of Canadians by demanding that Israel does NOT go ahead with the annexation.
Special Thanks to Niagara labour and community activist Bruce Allen for organizing this event
Looking forward to seeing you at St. Catharines City Hall, 2 p.m.to 3 p.m. on
*CANADA DAY.* This is a great way to mark our *National Holiday* – by standing up for the sacred Canadian value of*JUSTICE.*
*Note: Please observe Physical Distancing and wear a Mask.*
Thank you, Solidarity with Palestine
July 1st could represent a point of no return in Middle East politics. If Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu goes through with his illegal annexation plan in the West Bank, it will further entrench the apartheid systems and cause irrepairable harm for future generations of Palestinians and Israelis.
Thankfully there is a growing worldwide movement to stop this annexation plan, and many Canadian cities have risen to the task!

*Don’t forget! Email your MP: Sign the pledge against annexation*
As July 1st draws closer, the Canadian government has been mostly quiet about Israel’s potential annexation of large parts of the West Bank. This despite the fact that a recent *EKOS poll co-sponsored by IJV found that 74% of Canadians oppose this horrible plan, and 42% support imposing sanctions if Israel goes ahead with it.
In an attempt to avert the injustice of Israel’s annexation of additional Palestinian land, IJV is teaming up with Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East, the United Church of Canada, the Canadian Labour Congress and the Mennonite Central Committee to ask MPs to sign a pledge urging the Canadian government to take action on annexation.
*Can you help us convince your MP to sign the pledge?*
