Canada’s Transportation Ministry recently approved a $36.16 million dollar contract for drone technology from Elbit Systems, Israel’s largest weapons company. The money will purchase a “civilian” version of Elbit’s lethal military drone, the same one which was used to kill civilians during Israel’s assault on Gaza in 2014. Through this purchase, Canada directly supports the profits of a weapons company responsible for ongoing human rights violations against Palestinians.

We are at another turning point in the history of the Palestine-Israel conflict. Despite harsh international condemnation, Israel is still moving ahead to illegally annex huge new swaths of Palestinian territory. A growing group of Canadian civil society organizations is asking MPs to sign a pledge which calls on Canada to stand against Israel's imminent annexations. Click-here to help us convince your MP to sign the pledge.
Israeli politicians announced a plan that would illegally annex large portions of the West Bank to Israel. This plan, in accordance with Trump’s “Deal of the Century” could be implemented as early as July 10. In a despicable move, the new Israeli government has used the distraction of the worldwide Coronavirus pandemic to proceed with this unilateral and illegal plan. Tell Trudeau, your local MP, and other political leaders in Canada: STOP ISRAEL'S ILLEGAL ANNEXATION IN THE WEST BANK!
