CJPME has responded promptly and strongly to recent developments:
- On Tuesday, CJPME issued a press release calling for an emergency parliamentary debate on what’s happening in Palestine-Israel.
- CJPME is maintaining a running list of all the actions taking place across Canada this week. Please look over the list, and let us know if you are aware of any other events that should be added.
- CJPME maintains a Twitter record of all statements from MPs about Sheikh Jarrah and Jerusalem, amplifying their voices.
- CJPME strongly criticized the useless statement from Canada’s foreign affairs minister Marc Garneau which refused to condemn Israel’s actions.
- Last week, CJPME issued a press release urging Canada to take action to stop the evictions in Sheikh Jarrah.
- Last week, we called out CBC for its media bias in covering the events.
