The Palestine House (البيت الفلسطيني) and Courage announce an Emergency Rally Against the “Deal Of The Century” to be held on Saturday February 1, 2020 in front of the American Consulate in Toronto.
Here is the text of the statement issued by the Palestine House and Courage:
All out on Saturday! *Buses will depart from Palestine House for those coming from Mississauga and beyond*
The Trump Administration has just unveiled the details of its “Deal Of The Century”. This plan includes, but is not limited to:
Giving legitimacy to illegal Israeli settlements in Palestine
Annexing parts of the West Bank (including the Jordan Valley)
Granting Palestinians a “state” made up of non-contiguous cantons similar to the Bantustans under apartheid in South Africa.
These are just some of the aspects from this plan that has already been rejected by the Palestinian community and leadership at large.
The road to Palestinian freedom lays first and foremost in addressing Israel’s regime of settler-colonialism, occupation and apartheid, in Israel dismantling its illegal settlements as well as recognition of the right for return.
Only consistent pressure on Israel by Canada and the international community, including through support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, can bring about lasting and meaningful change for both Israelis and Palestinians.
Come raise your voice outside the US consulate at 1:00 p.m. this Saturday, February 1 in Toronto in solidarity with Palestine!
