Canadian Politicians: Speedy release of Canadians detained in Israel. Sign our Petition today
On Saturday morning local Greek time, the third international Freedom Flotilla set sail for Gaza in the hopes of breaking Israel’s illegal and immoral blockade.
Sign our petition to Canada’s federal party leaders, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Affairs critics, demanding an end to Canada’s complicity in Israel’s crimes against the Palestinians of Gaza, and the safe passage of Canadians aboard the flotilla. Former Ardoch Algonquin chief Robert “Bob” Lovelace and retired marine engineer Kevin Neish from Victoria B.C. were detained along with 16 other people from different countries aboard the Marianne, seized illegally this morning by Israeli occupation forces in international waters. In Bob’s words, Gaza is “the world’s largest Indian reservation.”
Brave Canadians like Bob and Kevin, who are speaking truth to power on behalf of those of us who support Palestinian rights, need our support.
Sign this petition now demanding from Canadian politicians that they defend the safe passage of these Canadians to Gaza, and that they support international law by opposing the collective punishment of the people of Gaza. It’s time to end the blockade NOW!
