On Sunday August 9, 2020 (3 PM – 4:30 PM) Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network and ‎Palestinian Youth Movement (PYM) will hold a “Day of Resistance – Resurgence Through Art + Education” at Yonge-Dundas Square in Toronto.

The joint statement by Samidoun and PYM reads:

PYM Toronto is hosting a youth-focused event on Sunday August 9, 2020 at 3PM in accordance with the Samidoun Day of Resistance Call to Action. The Samidoun call to action is an invitation for all Palestinian community organizaions, solidarity groups, and movements to host/endorse Days of Resistance to build onto the Day of Rage events that took place on the week of July 1.
This event will be held as a disruption at Yonge-Dundas Square as Palestinians and allies come together to hold space for an educational and art-centered event. We hope to build community with our Palestinian siblings through poetry, art displays, dabke, and sign making projects. We invite our allies to come out to support in educating the public on the current threats of annexation and the Palestinian struggle in general – we will provide the educational material!
This event is child friendly and we encourage families and friends to come out. All the necessary Covid-19 precautions will be taken as everyone is required to wear a mask and try to social distance as much as possible. We will also have hand sanitizer and extra masks for folks. Hope to see you all there in continuing resistance against Israeli occupation.

Similar event will be held in other cities across North America. Al-Awda, The Palestine Right to Return Coalition posted on Facebook:

After leading the largest Palestine protest in Brooklyn since the Second Intifada on July 1st, we will be mobilizing again on Friday, August 7th with the NY4Palestine Coalition as part of the Days of Resistance from August 7th-9th.

“The struggle is not over; in many ways, it has just begun. We urge you to continue mobilizing to defend the land and people of Palestine and join us in the Days of Resistance, August 7-9.” – Samidoun

On August 7th we will be taking to the streets again to not only reject the criminal annexation plan, but against the entirety of the zionist colonial project from the river to the sea.

Within Our Lifetime is proud to endorse the Days of Resistance and urge all of our supporters and all those who stand for Palestinian liberation to mobilize in defense of Palestine and participate in actions in your community August 7th – 9th across the US and around the world. You can stay updated on planned mobilizations at Samidoun.net.

To all those who took to the streets with us in Brooklyn on July 1st, and for everyone who couldn’t make it last time, mark your calendars for August 7th and help us spread the word by sharing this post in your story and and inviting your friends to the Facebook event page https://www.facebook.com/events/1155028838189165/

Now is the time to put words into action. More info coming soon. We’ll see you on the streets.🇵🇸
