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.

 SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE TO SIGN PETITION.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.

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.

    This has to stop. This is GENOCIDE. Morally wrong on all levels. What Israel has done since 1948 needs to stop. Israel has played on the worlds sympathy as a victim when the real victims are the Palestine people who took them in and welcomed them then they first came to the country known as Palestine. History has not been told in a truthful manner. Stop the support of Israel by USA!! Where is the UN? Being useless for so long or siding with Israel…?
