Abbas Hamideh, a Cleveland, OH-based pro-Palestinian activist, was the keynote speaker at the Walk against Israel that took place on May 20, 2019 at Clanton Park in Toronto. The participants of the Walk against Israel marched on Bathurst Street chanting Free Palestine and Palestine is Arab.
The Walk against Israel was organized by Canadian Defenders for Human Rights (CD4HR) led by Aliya Hasan and Firas Al Najim.
After the event Abbas Hamideh posted on his Facebook page:
Today’s #WalkAgainstIsrael in #Toronto #Canada in the heart of the Criminal Zionist Community. We refused to be intimidated and we came despite the threats to our lives all over social media and despite the cries for Canada to ban me from coming inside the country by the terrorist Jewish Defense League (JDL). Thanks to the organizers for inviting me to lead the march and rally and to everyone that came out to support our just struggle for Palestinian liberation! Free #Palestine! (05-20-2019)
