All the ususal “Union Suspects” will be there as well….
MONTREAL, May 20 /CNW Telbec/ – A 17 member delegation from Quebec has been traveling across Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories since Sunday May 17 and is set to enter Gaza through the Erez Crossing Point on Thursday May 21st at around 9 AM local time (2 AM Montreal Time). Shocked by the human rights violations of the Palestinians, the delegation has decided to go to Gaza.
The purpose of this trip is to help end the siege of Gaza, to express solidarity with the Palestinian population, and to denounce Canada’s and Quebec’s position on the Palestinian question.
The delegation is comprised of membres of unions (FNEEQ, STTP/CUPW, SCFP/CUPE), of NGOs (Alternatives International, Ligue des droits et libert Des, Marche mondiale des femmes/FFQ, Collectif de Qu Debec pour la paix, Artistes pour la paix, Regroupement des maisons de jeunes du Qu Debec, Funambules M Dedias, Collectif d’Abord solidaires), of Middle-East focused organisations (CJPP, PAJU, IJV, Coalition pour la justice en Palestine UQAM) and of Qu Debec solidaire.
Alternatives International is a project of Alternatives a ratbag commie NGO which received nearly 4 million of your tax dollars in 2007 alone. CIDA is its primary patron. CIDA and Alternatives have a long history Israel bashing.
