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

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Cowardice asks the question – is it safe? Expediency asks the question – is it politic? Vanity asks the question – is it popular? But conscience asks the question – is it right? 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!

Affirming history, independence and the cause of peace and justice

By ISAAC SANEY, National Spokesperson, Canadian Network on Cuba

On July 26, 1953, a group of courageous young men and women — led by Fidel Castro — attacked the Moncada Barracks in the city of Santiago de Cuba, and the Carlos Manuel de Cespedes Barracks in Bayamo, in an attempt to overthrow the U.S.-supported puppet dictator Fulgencio Batista. As the island’s second largest military garrison, the Moncada Barracks was critical to Batista’s military control of southern Cuba. The goal was to seize the weapons and distribute them to the people and spark a national uprising that would not only overthrow the Batista dictatorship but also establish Cuba’s independence and sovereignty. This heroic act is annually commemorated all over Cuba as the beginning of the movement and struggle that laid the foundation of the Cuban Revolution. Continue reading
