Gaza 20/20

The UN has stated that Gaza, Palestinei is expected to be unlivable in 2020.  For the nearly 2 million Palestinians in Gaza, Israel’s persecution and collective punishment has already made life there unbearable.


The Gaza 20/20 campaign is internationally focused on bringing consciousness to the grave situation, and leading to action to call on governments to call the Israeli government to accountability.



In Canada, Just Peace Advocates partners with Al-Haq to bring this message to our Canadian government, pointing out Canadian Accountability through both international and domestic law.


Domestic Law: Canadian sanctions laws implement United Nations Security Council (UNSC) sanctions regimes under the United Nations Act, as well as Canadian autonomous sanctions regimes under the Special Economic Measures Act. Under the Special Economic Measures Act, sanctions are required when gross and systematic human rights violations have been committed in a foreign state


International Law: Under Article 1 of the Fourth Geneva Convention, all high signatories in which Canada is one, are required to take actions to ensure that violations of the Fourth Geneva Convention do not occur under any circumstance.


Click HERE to listen to Rania Muhareb, legal researcher with Al Haq with Roger Waters on impunity for Israeli killing in Gaza, April 2018, Barcelona. "

Organizations are invited to sign the following letter to call the Canadian government to account.  Click HERE.

In Canada that call is for #economicsanctions #militaryembargo until the blockade is lifted.


Check out the grave situation on the ground for the people of Palestine living in Gaza: 

Legal field research by Al Haq is available HERE

Al Haq publications on Gaza re available HERE


Information on the campaign can be printed to share from HERE.

I join in the call that

the Canadian government respect its own domestic law, the Special Economic Measures Act, and

its responsibility under Article 1 of the Fourth Geneva Convention,

by implementing a military embargo and economic sanctions on the military state of Israel until the blockade on Gaza is lifted.

    Isn’t it time for our government to act properly by siding with justice in stead of siding with aggression and crimes against humanity?!

    Please help the people who live in all of occupied Palestine. It is long overdue to end the occupation!! They just want their lives back. They want a safe place for their children to grow up, to be educated and live in peace. By not helping, international governments are part of the problem and need to consider being part of the solution. I am assuming that because Palestine has nothing of great value for Canada and really has no world power, our government does not feel the Palestinian people are important enough to help. Please reconsider your views and help these people.

    I find it tragic that our own political leaders lack the moral spine to stand up to cruel and heartless governments. Will ‘economic benefits’ always outweigh human decency and kindness?
