Thank the Canadian government for the recent UN vote
(français ci-dessous) Thank the Canadian government for their recent vote at the UN and call for substantial and meaningful actions for a just peace. In November 2019 – for the first time since 2005 – Canada voted in favour of a United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) resolution in support of Palestinian self-determination. The resolution (74/69) condemns illegal settlements and the Israeli occupation.
Peacebuilding to Address Forced Migration
All over the world, people are on the move. Over 70.8 million people are currently forcibly displaced from their homes. In 2018 alone, there were 28 million new internal displacements across 148 countries and territories. Eighty percent of the world’s displaced remain in neighboring countries in the global south. They have no prospective of either going home or resettling in a third country.
No Way to Treat a Child
Every year, the Israeli military prosecutes hundreds of Palestinian children from the occupied West Bank in military courts. At any one time, more than 300 children – some as young as 12 years of age – are held in military detention. They are mostly charged with throwing stones.
