Stand up and be counted!

Our heartaches for the people of Gaza is beyond words.  Yet despite the indifference of the West, we cannot be silent.  We encourage you to take action on-line via other tools below.  If you see on-line hate or incitement to hate, we have launched a tool to enable you to capture and record such incidents.  Almost 18,000 Canadians have emailed Trudeau and their own MP using our email tool.  Join them now!  And if you've already emailed; do it again.  Donate to Gaza humanitarian aid.  The CJPME Foundation is working with partners to ensure that our aid gets in as soon as it's permitted. Ramp up on the issues.  Check out our talking points, statements and recommendations. Continue reading

 

Use our new tool to phone your MP, demand a ceasefire

More than two weeks after Israel's collective punishment against the Palestinians of Gaza began, the Canadian government still refuses to call for a ceasefire.  While every day brings news of Israel's bombing of Gaza hospitals, Israel's destruction of Gaza schools and buildings, and Israel's blocking of humanitarian aid, our politicians talk gibberish about Israel's "self defence" and not about Israeli genocide.  If the tens of thousands of messages we've sent to our "leaders" haven't been noticed, then it's time to call them up at their offices!
