Event. URGENT CALL – Rally for Al-Quds-Palestine • Toronto: Saturday, July 29

The situation in Jerusalem/ Al-Quds, in Gaza, in Palestine is very grave and only getting worse. The relentless brutality against Palestinians and the latest aggression in Al-Quds are in total defiance to international laws and United Nations resolutions.

This Saturday (July 29), we take to the streets to show our outrage at the failure of the Canadian government to speak out and to let people know things are not OK as media might portray. Most importantly, we show oppressed and heroic Palestinians fighting with their lives that they are not alone. They need to see our support.

We must speak up! Silence is not an option!

United For Palestine
Palestine United
Al-Quds United

Saturday • July 29 • 3 to 5 pm

And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular; but one must take it because it is right” – Sounds like Palestine!
