18 days after Israel began its attack on Gaza labeled “Operation Protective Edge”, over 800 Palestinians have been killed and over 5,200 injured. The disproportionate and indiscriminate killing of Palestinians has led the United Nations Human Rights Council to begin investigating allegations of Israeli war crimes. Montrealers took to the streets again for the fourth time in less than 2 weeks on Wednesday July 23rd to denounce Israel’s killing of innocent civilians and to call for an end to the more systemic problem of Israeli Occupation and Apartheid.

Protesters denounced the recent Shuja’iya massacre where at least 97 Palestinians, 63 of whom were from the Gaza neighbourhood of Shuja’iya, were killed by the Israeli Army in the middle of the night. The Israeli attack took place on July 20th, breaking a Red Cross mediated ceasefire. According to current reports, most of the injured are children.

Protesters gathered in front of the Mont-Royal Metro Station holding lists of names of the hundreds of Palestinians killed since Israel began its offensive on July 8th. A petition circled through the crowd demanding that the Canadian Government take a political stance that respects the human rights of Palestinians. Over the past 2 weeks, Montrealers have been demanding and end to both the Canadian and Quebec government’s complicity with Israeli breaches of international law.
