THE CALL

The Canadian BDS Coalition aims to celebrate this new majority by making it visible on the streets of Canada. We appeal to everyone seeing this message, to every working class and progressive organization, to demonstrate on Saturday, May 18 in solidarity with the above demands.

Please plan street actions to occur in your city, in your community on Saturday May 18th. You may wish to initiate actions during the week of May 13th that marks 71 years since the Nakba took place in Palestine–that’s great! And please also undertake to organize powerful, visible manifestations of our national solidarity with the Palestinian people on the common target date, May 18th!
