Bryan unplug from Apartheid Israel

Sign and share the Canadian BDS Coalition petition to tell Bryan Adams to Unplug from Israeli Apartheid!

 

Bryan remember your words. CANCEL your performances in Tel Aviv December 4 and Jerusalem December 6.  

Canada heard you in 2014.  Palestine heard you in 2014. The world heard you in 2014, as you gave hope to the people of Gaza and all people who stand against war crimes and mass genocide.

You stood against the Israeli military bombardment on Gaza saying: “the Israeli blockade of #Gaza just entered its 8th year, leaving its 1.7 million inhabitants destitute” and  “I say the war against Gaza was a crime against humanity.”  

Lest you think things in Gaza no longer a concern, Amnesty International and the United Nations independent human rights experts remind you  this is not the case.  Over two million people are in their eleventh year in an outdoor prison, that has experienced three horrendous military attacks.  Electricity is only available a few hours a day, water is scarce and sewage is polluting the Mediterranean.   This is a completely human-made humanitarian crisis.

Bryan, we remind you that “Most Canadians Say Sanctions and Boycott are Reasonable Measures to Defend Palestinian Rights”   (the 2017 EKOS poll )

In 2016 the world cheered when you cancelled your Mississippi tour date in protest over the state’s anti-LGBT law.

Let the world cheer again, when you CANCEL your Tel Aviv and Jerusalem performances Bryan.

Letter Sent to Bryan Adams from the Canadian BDS Coalition.  Bryan you only have one Canadian concert before you play Apartheid Israel.  We are looking for you to show your leadership on human rights by announcing you are cancelling your shows in Israel.

 

See the letter signed by Roger Waters and other musicians telling Bryan Adams to cancel his Israeli concerts.  Artists wishing to sign the letter can do so here.

Letter from around the world from organizations saying UNPLUG Bryan. Organizations wishing to sign the letter can do so here.

Bryan Adams, Where Have You Gone?  Letters not even being acknowledged, but you said you wanted a meeting with us in September.  What are you avoiding?

100 Years of Balfour Declaration is Not Something to Celebrate

balfour agreement

On November 2, 2017, it will be a century since the road for colonization of Palestine was set.

Recognizing a century since the Balfour Declaration, 70 years since the Partition Plan and approaching 70 years since the Nakba, 50 years of occupation of the territory taken in the 1967 set-back, and 10 years seize on Gaza, we are pleased that Alexandre Boulerice, MP to Rosemont—La Petite-Patrie, NDP, Quebec has sponsored the following petition to the government of Canada.

It will be posted until January 27, 2018.   Please sign and share through your networks.  A majority of Canadians have said they support sanctions against Israeli war crimes (EKOS 2017).  This is our chance to have Canadians express we expect our government to uphold its own international obligations under United Nation Resolutions, and fulfill its responsibility under Article 1 of the Fourth Geneva Convention which requires the convention to be respected in all circumstances.

Boycott HP

hpHP provides on-going support and maintenance to a biometric ID system installed in Israeli checkpoints in the occupied West Bank that deprive Palestinians of the freedom of movement in their own land and allows the Israeli military occupation to grant or deny special privileges to the civilians under its control.

HP is also working with the Israeli government to manufacture and distribute a biometric ID system for all Israeli citizens, which categorizes citizens by their ethnic background and serves to discriminate against Arab citizens. HP manages the IT infrastructure for the Israeli navy and supplies the Israeli army with equipment and services specific to the needs of the military occupation. It is involved in the planning, construction, operation and maintenance of the intricate mechanisms of physical separations and restrictions of movement.

HP also supports Israel’s occupation of Palestinian land by providing a computerized storage system to an illegal settlement.

Learn more about HP’s involvement in Israeli’s system of control at whoprofits.org’s Technologies of Control: The Case of Hewlett Packard (HP) page.

Get involved at the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights, the BDS Movement’s Boycott HP campaign or the HP Boycott Campaign. You can also pledge to boycott and support divestment from HP at Jewish Voice for Peace.

Boycott Hyundai

c4km-bwwaaahnkrThe Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Committee of Palestinian Citizens of Israel (BDS48) calls upon our Palestinian people in the homeland and the Diaspora, the peoples of the Arab world, and people of conscience worldwide to boycott and divest from Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), until it ends its involvement in Israel’s violations of our human rights, particularly in Jerusalem and the Naqab (Negev).

Learn more about the campaign and get resources on the BDS Movement website.

#Paypal4Palestine

paypallPalestinians living in the occupied West Bank and Gaza are unable to use PayPal services, while Israeli settlers living in the West Bank have full access to the platform.

Not having access to PayPal limits the growth of Palestinian businesses — especially the burgeoning tech sector, which is providing employment and livelihood to Palestinians living under occupation.

A coalition of Palestinian businesses and civil society groups is calling on PayPal to end this discrimination against Palestinians.

Get the latest updates at the PayPal for Palestine Facebook page.

Take action by adding your name to the #PayPal4Palestine petition!

 

Airbnb Stolen Homes

Stolen HomesThere are 13,000 Airbnb listings in Israel, though investigations have revealed that many of the properties are actually located in settlements built on stolen Palestinian land in the West Bank. By allowing users to list and rent these properties and taking 9-15% from hosts and guests, Airbnb is making money off of Israel’s continued military occupation of Palestinian land and helping facilitate settlement activity.

Get involved at stolenhomes.org or the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation.
