Please support Principal Rich Ward, suspended for calling out Israeli genocide!

On Nov. 13, Rich Ward, principal of Tribune Drive Public School in Brampton was suspended from his job while the Peel District School Board (PSDB) “investigates” a brief tweet he made the day before. In that tweet, Ward rightly suggests that Israel is committing a genocide against Palestinians in Gaza, and that Israel’s violence was triggering anti-Zionist sentiment in Canada. The PDSB has clearly caved to vague criticisms about Ward’s post, while 1) seemingly unaware of expert concerns over Israel’s genocidal violence, and 2) contemptuous of Ward’s right to free expression.

Use the fields below to tell the PDSB senior leadership and trustees, as well as Ontario’s education minister, 1) that Ward must be immediately reinstated, 2) that the PDSB must issue an apology, and 3) that the PDSB must take steps to end anti-Palestinian racism in the PSDB.
