The Palestinian uprising isn’t over and we’re going to keep up this momentum and continue pressuring for change. Families in Sheikh Jarrah are still waiting to hear from Israeli colonial courts next month on whether settlers will take their homes, Gaza is being heavily bombarded with air strikes, and Palestinian protests are occurring from Ramallah to Haifa.
Description of Events: The vigil will begin at 6 PM at the Vancouver Art Gallery, where we will commemorate the lives of those recently killed by Israel violence in Gaza, Haifa, and Jerusalem. People are welcome to reflect and say prayers. This vigil is not associated with a specific religion, we are here in unity to amplify Palestinian voices. We will have a few speakers, and provide candles, flowers, and the names and pictures of those killed. Following the vigil, we will be marching to the U.S Consulate with a list of demands for both Canada and the US as well as a call to action. Stay tuned for program details. The route for the march will also be published here so you can follow it.
Hosted by: Palestinian Youth Movement and Canada Palestine Association
Note: We will be abiding by COVID-19 guidelines, including social distancing measures. We look forward to seeing you there!
