The latest updates from the Palestine Solidarity Network - Edmonton

Fourth Rally for Gaza this Wednesday

Israel has restarted its inhumane and illegal attack on the people of Gaza, which has already claimed over 1000 Palestinian lives. More than 80 percent of the victims are civilians and 1 in 5 of them are children. You can the faces of some of Israel's victims here, and get information about the humanitarian impacts here. There will be a fourth rally and march in support of the people of Gaza this Wednesday. The Canada Palestine Cultural Association is also holding its Eid dinner and Gaza fundraiser tonight.

Below are details of the rally, other upcoming events, and ways you can stand with Gaza in Edmonton to bring an end to this horrific and unjustified bombardment. For ongoing updates and more information, please visit the PSN website or like us on Facebook.

Please continue to pressure all political parties to speak up about what is happening in Gaza, engage with media stories on Gaza, and continue to share information in your networks and on social media.

Call-in For Gaza

Want to do something to help stop the Israeli attack on Gaza? Participate in the cross-Canada Call-in For Gaza to flood the leaders of all four main Canadian political parties with phone calls demanding they call for an immediate arms embargo on Israel and an end to the assault on Gaza.

Join the global BDS movement!

Before the current assault on Gaza began more than two weeks ago, Palestinians in Gaza, the West Bank, Occupied East Jerusalem, and in the diapora had suffered decades of occupation, siege, and exclusion. The best way to stand in solidarity with Palestinians is to respond to the Palestinian call for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS). Learn more about the BDS movement, find out who profits from the occupation, and start today by boycotting these common Israeli consumer products.
