Congrats to Canada Palestine Association, Samidoun, BDS Vancouver-Coast Salish and others for the great actions on June 3 in Vancouver.
Activists from local solidarity groups gathered at CBC to call for freedom for Walid Daqqah and all Palestinian prisoners. Then, they held a march and flash action at Scotiabank headquarters, to help launch the national campaign to demand that Scotiabank divest from the Israeli arms maker Elbit Systems.
The Canadian BDS Coalition is pleased to echo this call across Canada and Quebec
#StopScotiabank #ShutElbitDown campaign. We are asking you to please do up a selfie (or a group action) with this sign in front of your local Scotiabank. We want to show support for the campaign from across the country.
And stay tune for further actions, and pictures of course.
Send you pictures to email@example.com and/or tag @bds_vancouver on Twitter.
Vancouver activists highlighted the complicity of Scotiabank in profiting off Palestinian death, due to its status as the largest foreign investor in the Israeli arms company Elbit Systems.
