Opened in 2014, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) has steadfastly ignored human rights violations against Palestinians. Palestinian Canadian activists in Winnipeg have been trying for the last decade to get the CMHR to recognize the Nakba – the catastrophic dispossession of the Palestinians from their land – and tell the stories of the Nakba survivors, but they have been disregarded.
Recent scandals have rocked the CMHR, leading to new management and a supposedly renewed commitment against racism. There is a new opportunity for us to remind the museum to live up to its ethical responsibility.
Use the fields below to tell the Canadian Museum for Human Rights to include the experiences of Palestinians, and acknowledge the Nakba! Your email will go to the Museum, its board of directors, the Minister of Canadian Heritage, and your own MP.
