Calgary:Protest Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to Ottawa #flotilla

On May 31st, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be visiting Ottawa, the capital of the country where support for Israel is among the strongest in the world: ours. The Ottawa Palestine Solidarity Network is organizing a protest of his visit on that day, and SPHR Calgary will be holding a protest at the same time in Calgary.

Come out Monday, May 31st to the Harry Hays Building downtown from 3-4:30pm and join us in reminding Stephen Harper and the rest of the world that war criminals are not welcome in Canada! Bring all of your friends and family and let us join together in solidarity to oppose occupation and take a stand for justice, peace and human rights!

The occupation. The wall. The siege. The settlements. The impunity. The Israeli occupation is becoming increasingly brutal with the unflinching support of the Canadian government. For all these reasons and more, it's crucial for all Canadians who believe in justice and peace to take a stand. 
The illegal siege of
Gaza continues to suffocate the Palestinians who live there, preventing them from rebuilding from Israel’s attack last year that killed 1400 people (half of them children). The recent military order giving the Israeli military discretion to deport Palestinians from the West Bank is an affront to human rights and democracy.
