On Friday November 7, the Montreal-based Palestine Solidarity group PAJU (Palestinian and Jewish Unity) demonstrated with over 200 people outside of the Israeli consulate against the Apartheid Wall and the ongoing Occupation of Palestine. This vigil, which has taken place every Friday for nearly 3 years at the consulate on the corner of Peel Street and Rene Levensque Street, was intensified to support the grassroots Palestinian call for International Day Against the Wall. Protestors gathered despite cold weather and counter-protest to stand in solidarity against the racist Apartheid Wall and demand justice for Palestine.
***image3***Momentum continued with a conference in the evening about the Apartheid Wall and its devastating impact on water, agriculture and all aspects of Palestinian existence. Starting from Sunday, November 9, additional actions – including conferences, exhibitions, petitions, vigils and demonstrations – are planned throughout Montreal to strengthen solidarity and resistance to the Occupation and the Wall.
