Supporting Palestine Solidarity: Drastic times call for drastic measures

It is often said that "desperate times call for desperate measures," and we feel like this perfectly embodies the amazing and inspiring response of the Palestine solidarity movement in Canada.  Since Oct. 7, across the country, Canadians have protested, campaigned, advocated, emailed, petitioned and donated in support of the Palestinians of Gaza.  CJPME is so proud to be part of an amazing generation of Canadians who have stood up in support of the humanity, human rights and liberation of Palestinians.

Myths and Facts: Why we call for a permanent ceasefire in Gaza

Myth 1: There’s no point in Canada calling for a ceasefire because it can’t impose a ceasefire on Hamas and Israel Response: A call for a ceasefire is a statement of intent and principle.  A Canadian call for a ceasefire would indicate that Canada disapproves of armed conflict as a way to solve international conflicts, whether by Hamas or Israel.  A Canadian call for a ceasefire, in parallel with calls from other countries, would exert enormous pressure on both Israel and Hamas to find a negotiated resolution to the current conflict.  No country in the world has suggested that it is in a position to “impose” a ceasefire, yet dozens of countries have called for a ceasefire because it is the principled thing to do.  Canada should follow suit.

See our full-page ad in Toronto Star

On November 11, 35 days after Israel began its horrific siege and bombing of Gaza's civilian population, CJPME published the following full-page ad in the Toronto Star!  Despite Israel having killed over 4200 children, Canada's Liberal government shamelessly refuses to intervene or call for a ceasefire. Send a message to the Prime Minister that the genocide of Palestinians is happening on his watch!   While we know this government will be condemned by HISTORY, we feel it necessary to condemn this government's indifference TODAY!  Continue reading


47 Weekend ceasefire protests, other actions & resources
