Weapons companies across Canada are making a fortune off of the carnage in Gaza and the occupation of Palestine.
As we mourn the thousands of people who have been killed in the past few weeks we refuse to stand by and allow the only true winners in war — the weapons manufacturers — to continue to arm and profit off of it.
Canada exported over $21 million in military goods to Israel in 2022, including over $3 million in bombs, torpedoes, missiles, and other explosives.
For the first time, we working with World BEYOND War, are making public a list of 13 weapons companies across Canada who arm the Israeli military and have mapped out 43 of their locations across the country.
The Canada-Israel weapons trade is extremely secretive. This is an incomplete list of weapons manufacturers. Have more to add? Let us know by emailing us at email@example.com
This is a call to action. It’s time to stop letting these weapons companies profit off of the massacre of thousands of Palestinians.
Find a location near you, get friends and allies together, and interrupt their business as usual to demand they stop selling arms and military technology to Israel.
Ready to take action? Let us know so we can support.
We can support with inviting allies to join you, publicizing your plans (if they’re public), getting media attention, providing more info on weapons producers, and disseminating photos. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get in touch. And please send us photos afterwards so we can compile actions across the country.
This is supported by World BEYOND WAR, in collaboration with Canadian Foreign Policy Institute, Just Peace Advocates, Labour Against the Arms Trade, and the Canadian BDS Coalition.
