MARCHÉ ADONIS 2173, rue Ste-Catherine Ouest, Montréal, QC, CA.
Dear Mr. Naaman Aboud,
Le 18 juin 2015
It has come to our attention, as well as to some other members of our organisation who shop at Adonis, that you currently stock Sabra hmmus, a product of the the Israeli company named the Strauss Group which has “adopted” an elite IDF unit. The company’s website has boasted of providing the Golani Brigade “with an ongoing variety of food products for their training or missions, and provide personal care packages for each soldier that completes the path.”
The Strauss Group has also said it gives funds to the IDF unit for “welfare, cultural and educational activities, such as pocket money for underprivileged soldiers, sports and recreational equipment, care packages, and books and games for the soldiers’ club.”

Our organization, Palestinian and Jewish Unity (PAJU) expresses its solidarity with the Armenian people and the people and organizations that commemorate the Armenian Genocide of 1915, the first genocide of the twentieth century.
From April 1915 to July 1916, two thirds of Armenians (one and a half million or more) who lived on the present territory of Turkey, were massacred by the government of the Ottoman Empire. The Armenians perished due to deportations, famine and large-scale massacres. It was planned and executed by the party in power at the time, the Committee of Union and Progress (CUP), better known as the "Young Turks." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armenian_Genocide)

In 2010, PAJU (Palestinian and Jewish Unity) announced its campaign to make Montreal’s St. Denis Street an apartheid-free zone. The campaign began by targeting Beautyfeel shoes (made in Israel) at Le Marcheur shoe store.
Although the ultimate target of the campaign was the Naot store, a transnational corporation (Disney is the major share-holder by way of Shamrock investments) with a manufacturing centre in the illegal Gush Etzion settlement block near Hebron, the choice of beginning our picket in front of Le Marcheur made it clear that PAJU was picketing an Israeli product and that there was nothing ‘anti-Semitic’ about the campaign, despite comments to the contrary by the usual circles of support for the illegal Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories.
PAJU (Palestinian and Jewish Unity) denounces Israel's onslaught against the Civilian population of Gaza
Montreal, July 11th, 2014
Palestinian and Jewish Unity denounces in the strongest possible terms Israel’s latest onslaught against the Palestinian population of Gaza and demands that the United Nations work to achieve an immediate ceasefire to prevent further bloodshed . The response from Israel subsequent to the deaths of three Israeli adolescents has been completely disproportionate to the situation and smacks of a preconceived military assault using the deaths of the three adolescents as a justification for launching, once again, a brutal campaign of collective punishment against Gaza’s civilian population which has been subjected to an illegal blockade since 2007.
PAJU Press Release
Montreal, December 6th, 2013
Palestinian and Jewish Unity (PAJU) wishes to pay homage to Nelson Mandela, a proponent of the principle of human rights, the quintessential example of the nobility of the human spirit and the incarnation of the struggle of all oppressed peoples for their emancipation from the chains that bind them. ‘These countless human beings, both inside and outside our country, had the nobility of spirit to stand in the path of tyranny and injustice, without seeking selfish gain. They recognised that an injury to one is an injury to all and therefore acted together in defense of justice and a common human decency,’ said Mandela upon accepting the Nobel Prize in 1993.
