U.S. Backed Invasion by Israel: Stop the Israeli Massacre in Gaza!

06-01-2009 15:58

Shortly after darkness fell on Saturday night, January 3, Israel launched a massive land invasion of Gaza involving 9,000-10,000 soldiers, tanks, helicopters, and heavy artillery, engineering and intelligence forces, with the support of Israel’s Air Force, navy, and secret police and spy agencies. The ground invasion came after Israel, for the first time, unleashed an artillery barrage on Gaza, striking a mosque and killing at least 11 people. By the next day, Israeli forces had reportedly cut Gaza in half, “bisecting” it between north and south.

Safe Place for Gaza

06-01-2009 14:27

The memorial tent is the safe place, a space of reflection for people to come together to remember those Gazans murdered during Israel’s horrific attacks on a civilan population.

Political and religious dispute should not prevent us from gathering and simply honouring those who have lost their lives in this collective punishment, Israel’s means of terrifying an entire nation.

To date 531 people have died and 2500 have been severely injured, 40 % of which are children.
But these are just numbers not the lives behind the figures nor all the pain and suffering of those still living, facing starvation and constant assault by air, land and water.

In memory of those lost in this bloody act of genocide we ask you to erect a tent in a central location in your local area and invite all, to sit and remember those people lost to our world.

An Open Letter From Anti-Zionist Jewish Youth in Canada January 5th, 2009

06-01-2009 07:53

Like much of the world, we have spent the last week watching in shock and disgust as Israel continues its assault on the Gaza Strip. With the body count rising and a new tragedy in full bloom, we feel that it is important to speak out as Jewish youth in Canada and to denounce what Israel is doing in our name. The Jewish diaspora is diverse and divided on its positions on the state of Israel's policies. At this juncture in history, as Israel has committed its worst massacre in Gaza since it began its illegal occupation in 1967, we feel that it is crucial that Jews speak out and denounce Israel's actions that amount to no less than war crimes committed by an apartheid state.

As Jewish youth, we are diverse, but we are unified in our solidarity with
our Palestinian brothers and sisters in Gaza.
