    3 Projects to Oppose Islamophobia in Canada

    As-salamu ‘alaykum. Warmest wishes to our Muslim friends during this celebration of the Holy Month of Ramadan. Like us, you’ve probably realized that we’re living at a crisis in history – where politicians feel free to attack minority groups, especially Muslim-Canadians. As a human rights organization, we believe it’s especially important to protect the rights of Canadians of Middle East origin. So today, we’re asking for your help with three projects that enable us to protect the civil liberties of Muslims in Canada. CJPME depends on your generous support to be able to continue this type of advocacy work. If you are Muslim, would you consider supporting these projects for your zakat this Ramadan? A monthly donation makes a huge difference; but any amount helps. You can also call at 438-380-5410, or print and send the form here. Please see our key projects below and consider helping out!

    CJPME Condemns Bill 21 As Institutionalized Discrimination

    Montreal, June 17, 2019 — Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (CJPME) strongly condemns Bill 21, which in the name of government “secularism,” will now bar Quebeckers who wear religious symbols from taking certain government positions. Despite months of public outcry and severe criticism from human rights groups, late last night the Quebec government passed Bill 21 into law. CJPME condemns Bill 21 as a violation of Quebeckers’ fundamental human rights and calls on Canadian politicians to condemn Bill 21 as institutionalized discrimination.

    Motion M-153 Does Not Honour Mosque Victims

    Montreal, June 5, 2019 — Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (CJPME) is deeply concerned that Motion M-153– which purports to honour the victims of the January 29, 2017 Quebec City mosque massacre – is an attempt to avert a proper tribute to the victims of January 29.  M-153, which passed second reading in the House of Commons last Thursday, a private-members motion introduced by Conservative MP Scott Reid, seeks to designate January 29 as a “National Day of Solidarity with Victims of Anti-religious Bigotry and Violence.” CJPME believes this motion fails to address the Islamophobia that inspired the January 29th massacre, instead diluting the significance of the January 29th by grouping together several dissimilar violent incidents from Canadian history.

It’s easy to sign & only takes 10 seconds! Let our government know that you oppose Islamophobia and all forms of religious discrimination.

    Support CUPW Against B’nai Brith’s Smear Campaign

    Earlier this week, B’nai Brith Canada launched a smear campaign against the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW), accusing the union of both supporting terrorism and aligning itself with “the path of violence and extremism.” This accusation comes amidst a CUPW decision to engage in a joint project with the Palestinian Postal Service Workers Union (PSWU), which B’nai Brith is smearing as a “pro-terrorist” organization.  But let’s be honest, the CUPW is under attack simply for showing solidarity with Palestinians.
