On Saturday, May 15, the Greater Toronto BDS Coalition hosted a cross-country online Day of Action for Palestine rally. It was initiated by Socialist Action, in partnership with many allies. So far, over 435 people have watched the online rally, either live, or subsequently on the SA YouTube channel. Saturday evening, against a backdrop of protests around the world against the Zionist campaign of terror and murder, close to 10,000 people rallied at Toronto City Hall Square to demand Freedom for Palestine.
Over 500 people attended an emergency rally in Toronto, Monday, May 10 at 3 p.m. in defense of the East-Jerusalem Palestinian neighbourhood of Sheikh Jarrah and to protest the attack on worshipers at Al Aqsa mosque.
73 years ago, over 750,000 Palestinians were displaced from their homes and their homeland by the establishment of the Zionist state, backed by the big powers. This displacement is ongoing and must be stopped!
