Toronto Rally Against Israeli Annexation
Saturday, June 27, 2020 / 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
Stop Israel’s illegal annexation of the West Bank! Defend international law. Defend Palestinian human rights.
Please join this urgent rally to oppose Israel’s attempts to annex large parts of the West Bank. Israel has announced plans to begin annexing the West Bank in July, with the full backing of the Trump administration. Any attempt at annexation would violate international law and numerous United Nations resolutions. It would also further entrench Israel’s illegal occupation and undermine any possibility for a peaceful resolution.
A broad coalition of Toronto-based labour, student, faith, community and cultural organizations has come together to organize this rally in an effort to pressure the Canadian government to condemn Israel’s impending annexation of parts of the West Bank. We are also trying to pressure the Canadian government to take concrete actions—such as imposing sanctions against Israel, and suspending the Canada-Israel Free Trade Agreement—if Israel continues its move towards annexation.
We invite you to join us on Saturday. Here is how you can help:
- Share this call-out widely. Forward to family, friends, and organizations in your networks.
- If you’re a member of an organization that supports human rights, peace, and justice, sign the statement below.
- Bring your own homemade placards or banners to the rally on Saturday.
- If you can’t join the rally in person, post a photo of yourself on social media holding a sign to support the rally. Use the hashtag #StopAnnexation.
