On July 12, 500 Vancouverites marched through downtown Vancouver on less than 48 hours notice, demanding an end to the Israeli war crimes in Palestine and to Canadian complicity and support.

VANCOUVER EMERGENCY PROTEST FOR GAZA, PALESTINE
Saturday, July 12
CBC Building, Hamilton and Georgia Sts.
Vancouver, Unceded Coast Salish Territories
This event is taking place on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh peoples.
GAZA IS UNDER ATTACK! Over 100 Palestinians in Gaza have been killed – including over 22 children – and hundreds wounded at the hands of Israeli missiles, bombs and fighter planes since Tuesday. While Palestinians are dying, Stephen Harper has once again reiterated his unconditional support of Israel, and MPs from across the Canadian political spectrum have been silent and complicit as the massacres continue.
Protests are being organized in cities around the world to respond to the ongoing assault on Palestine and the Palestinian people, including the bombing of Gaza and the killing of over 100 Palestinians by occupation forces; the murders of Palestinians (including 16-year-old Muhammad Abu Khdeir, murdered brutally by Israeli settlers) and ongoing settler and military brutality; the mass arrests of over 900; and the raids, attacks, tear-gassing, invasions and closure that Palestinians are being subjected to.
Join us in Vancouver to stand in solidarity, to chant and rally together and break the silence and the deception being put forward by mainstream media!
