Hundreds of Montrealers met again this Wednesday July 30th in front of the Mont-Royal station to denounce Israel’s war crimes in Gaza. This week’s protest was particularly focused on highlighting the complicity of Canadian political parties with these crimes.

Speakers condemned strongly the stance of the 3 main federal parties concerning the current events in Gaza. All parties failed to condemn strongly Israel for its war crimes. The organizers of the protest released this statement:

While the UN Human Rights Chief, Navi Pillay, warns that Israel is committing war crimes, and the international community is engaged in working on a sustainable cease-fire, the Harper Government is extending enthusiastic support to Israel, building upon the complicity of previous Liberal governments. The opposition parties have also stated their backing of the apartheid state in their war on Gaza. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau has reiterated Israel’s “right to defend itself” and the NDP leader Thomas Mulcair has yet to issue a condemnation of Israel.”

The protest was organized by Tadamon! (www.tadamon.ca)
