I was stripped of my delegate credentials at federal NDP Convention for standing with a Palestinian protest. No one (except the 4 of us who were silenced) complained abt lack of democracy. I’m a free speech advocate, about to quote Section 2(c) of the Charter to government.

Do you consider the American government is the real source of terrorism, and Israel is a just a tool?
Or that Israel is the source of terrorism and they are using the American recourses to commit their terrorist attacks ?
Or that Zionism is a system rooted in every government in the world and needs to be ended to protect Palestinians and ProPalestinians and the freedoms and dignity in the world?
Alanna Johnston commented:
3rd option, that Zionism is rooted in every govt and needs to be ended. I just returned from a rally in TO. It was cold and snowing and well worth the effort for a #CeasefireandAidNOW in #Palestine.

Thank you Alanna I agree with you .. it would be great if we can meet in person next rally..
