Tell Trudeau: Don’t forget our most vulnerable, esp. Gaza and refugees

Like most Canadians, we in CJPME are thankful for the Trudeau government’s aid package in response to the Coronavirus. This help is essential for Canadians who are losing jobs, income and livelihoods.  While many Canadians are still vulnerable, these past few days have seen the Coronavirus arrive in Gaza, and other vulnerable places.  Qatar has offered $150 million to Gaza, and the WHO has sent experts.  While we thank the Trudeau government, we also ask it to ADD aid for Gaza and other extremely vulnerable international communities, including refugees, to ADD aid for Canada’s migrant and undocumented workers, to ADD aid for those under immigration authority, to ADD aid for Canada's poor and marginalized. Click-here to ask Trudeau and your local MP to extend aid to Canada and the world's most vulnerable, especially Gaza and refugees!   Continue reading


Email Companies Profiting from Israel’s Settlements

In february, the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) released its list of 112 companies illegally profiting from Israel’s illegal “settlements.” These companies make money by providing services and doing business in Israel’s settlements. Six of these companies you probably know well: Airbnb, Expedia, Booking.com, TripAdvisor, Motorola and General Mills. Tell these companies that their complicity in supporting Israel’s illegal settlements is WRONG, and that you will BOYCOTT them until they end their involvement with Israel’s settlements.


Tell Trudeau he is wrong to condemn BDS

Last week, Canada’s minister of foreign affairs, Francois-Philippe Champagne made the following statement condemning BDS in the House of Commons: “Canada remains very concerned about any effort to single out or isolate Israel internationally. […] We condemn BDS. As a country, we need to urgently address the resurgence of antisemitism at home and abroad.” With this statement Champagne and the Trudeau government seek to smear BDS and to marginalize those who support its human rights objectives. Let’s tell Champagne and the Trudeau Gov’t that they can condemn us if they want, but BDS is a PEACEFUL, DEMOCRATIC way for Canadians of conscience to protest Israel’s human right abuses!
