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.

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.

    As a Canadian interested in human rights for the Palestinians, I call on the Canadian government to condemn the illegal settlements and the long-standing occupation and join the non-violent, Palestinian initiated BDS movement to put an end to the on-going apartheid policies of the Israeli government

    I am a Canadian citizen and a Jew, who moved to Israel before I learned the true history of how, since the end of the 19th century, most of the Jewish immigrants mistreated the indigenous Palestinians. It has only gotten worse over the years. The Israeli government must be made to realize that the world insists on PEACE WITH JUSTICE.

    Look at #APARTHEID #israel VIOLENT repression of the overehelmingly non-violent #GreatReturnMarch … How many 100’s of Martyrs will be needed before Politicians dare to consider Palestinian Human Rights as valid as those of the Jewish immigrants & their descendants …
