Take action in solidarity with Gaza

CPA-gazaIsrael is waging a massacre against Palestinians in Gaza, shamefully with the support of the Harper government. As a result of the ongoing illegal blockade, ensuring Gaza is an open-air prison, the people there have nowhere to run to as the Israeli military bombs homes, schools, and hospitals with impunity.

In communities across Canada, people are taking to the streets to oppose these violations of international law. Please join the protest nearest to you or organize one yourself.

Download and print a placard to bring to your local protest.

The Canadian Peace Alliance is calling on its member groups to oppose this brutality and to organize demonstrations – or join those already organized – in solidarity with Palestine.

Organizing a protest that’s not on the list below? Let us know so we can help promote it.
