    2018 – Look at what we've accomplished together

    "There's nothing like a challenge to bring out the best in man," said Sean Connery once.  We can't help but think of Connery's quote when we look at 2018, facing so many challenges from Trump's policies and our disappointing Canadian government.  But regardless, we continue fighting hard for human rights, both in the Middle East, and the related issues here in Canada.  Please take a look below and celebrate with us our accomplishments since January!

    CJPME Condemns New Quebec "Secularism" Bill

    Montreal, March 28th, 2019 — Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (CJPME) strongly condemns the Quebec government's new "secularism" bill – bill 21 – for being discriminatory and unconstitutional.  Entitled “An act respecting the laicity of the state,” the bill states that public servants in positions of authority, including judges, prosecutors, police officers, prison guards, court security, peace officers, school principals and elementary and high school teachers, will not be allowed to wear religious symbols while on the job.  A secular organization, CJPME opposes the bill as an infringement on the rights of Canadians of Middle East origin, especially Muslim-Canadians.  The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms prevents the government from passing laws which prevent or inhibit Canadians from practicing their religion.

    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.
