As resolutions in favour of boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against the State of Israel’s apartheid policies multiply among Quebec organisations, the Quebec BDS Coalition is being formed and you are cordially invited to attend its launching.
Come broach the subject with members of the Coalition to hear about their onthe- ground experiences and to talk about strategies which need to be undertaken in order to carry forward this historic campaign with international roots for peace and justice in Palestine.
This coming Wednesday, June 12th, 2013, a gala for the benefit of the Jewish National Fund will be held at the Centre des sciences in Montreal's Old Port starting at 6:00 PM. The JNF is the Israeli land agency which administers those Palestinian lands expropriated by israel. The JNF benefits from recognition as a charitable organisation in Canada.Thus, all donations to the JNF are tax-deductible. As such, the government of Canada subsidizes the process of ethnic cleansing against the Palestinians. Now the JNF, subsequent to the notion of judaizing the Negev as proposed by Benjamin Netanyahu, is gathering money as part of the project of driving 40, 000 Bedouin from their ancestral lands in the Negev. Mr. Elie Saheb,Executive Vice-President-Technology at Hydro-Québec is scheduled to be one of the principal speakers at the JNF Gala. As such, Hydro-Québec lends its support to the JNF and its project of ethnic cleansing aimed at the Bedouin in the Negev.
In the name of PAJU, of Independant Jewish Voices, of the Coalition for Justice and Peace in Palestine (CJPP) and of Tadamon, I invite you to come in front of the Centre des Sciences in the Old Port where will b held the picket line.
Bruce Katz President of PAJU

I was in the lobby of the Excentris where I had seen Five Broken Cameras, a documentary that shows the injustice and humiliation thrust upon the inhabitants of a small village in the West Bank by the Israelis. You leave the cinema with the urge to scream out loud.
The village is called Bil'in. The filmmaker? There's no filmmaker. The documentarist? There's no documentarist. There is a 40 year old farmer named Emad Burnat. And if Emad buys a camera, it is not to film big bad Israeli soldiers. It is to film his fourth son, Gibreel, newly-born.
In solidarity with GAZA and all Palestinians:

On Wednesday November 14th Israel declared its latest war on Gaza “Operation Pillar of Defense” also known as “Operation Pillar of Cloud”. The operation was launched with over 65 airstrikes in a period of one day. These latest attacks have led to the deaths of 19 Palestinians, and 180 injured in three days. The air strikes continue amidst a tight and illegal siege of the gaza strip.
