Greens fire anti-Palestinian extremist Noah Zatzman
After a wave of criticism from pro-Palestinian activists the Green Party of Canada Executive Council Committee terminated the contract of the senior adviser to party leader Annamie Paul. Over the past week 1400 individuals have emailed Green leaders calling through a Just Peace Advocates action on them to “remove Noah Zatzman as senior adviser” due to his anti-Palestinian statements.
“It’s great news that the Green party fired Noah Zatzman”, noted Karen Rodman of Just Peace Advocates. “Extremist anti-Palestinian positions have no place in a political party presenting itself as progressive.”
“Party leader Annamie Paul should make it clear that Noah Zatzman’s reprehensible views don’t reflect her outlook on Palestinian rights by publicly expressing her support for the Green party’s official policy, which repeatedly calls for pressuring Israel to comply with international law”, added Green Party of Canada member Yves Engler.
