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.

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.

    Israeli historian Ilan Pappe has referred to the situation of the blockade of Gaza as ‘incremental genocide.’ Israeli journalist Amira Hass has called Gaza a ‘concentration camp.’

    As a Canadian with a conscience, I call on the federal government to respect its moral, ethical and LEGAL obligations to assist the people of Gaza in their time of urgent need.

    It’s so wrong that world governments do nothing to prevent this slaughter of demonstrators. Please, please do something to stop it. I live in hope that once just one world government does more than condemn the almost daily killing of the occupied and oppressed Palestinians, others will find the courage to follow. This is terrible and it has to stop. The Palestinian people deserve to live in peace, with no restrictions on their basic human rights. Please help this happen. I’m distraught with reading of the continuous deaths of so many young people. What a terrible waste of so many lives, killed simply because they’re Palestinian.

    Canada needs to hold accountable not only Saudi Arabia, but ISRAEL as well. Multiple UN resolutions, multiple Human Rights agencies have denounced Israel’s illegal settlements, displacement of population, imprisonment of youth, destruction of homes AND villages, 11 years blockade on Gaza and continued murdering of protesters at the Gaza fence. CANADIAN POLITICIANS, THE JEWISH DIASPORA AND CANADIANS NEED TO STAND UP TO THIS ONGOING SLOW GENOCIDE!!
