‘No One Is Illegal – Toronto’ statement on Israeli Attacks on Gaza, plus call to take part in protests

No One is Illegal Toronto calls for an immediate end to the ongoing Israeli attacks on Gaza and the Palestinian people. We insist: End the Siege of Gaza!

Israeli air strikes and the subsequent ground invasion have resulted in almost 1300 deaths, majority civilian including over 200 children. The number of dead and injured innocents continues to rise. This callous attack on human life is an extension of Israeli policy that has suffocated life in the occupied territories for 60 years and imprisoned millions in the world’s largest open air prison. These attacks and the ongoing occupation of Palestine must end.

Since 1948, millions of Palestinians have been turned into refugees, forced out by the theft of their land. Palestinians today face check-points, an illegal apartheid wall, blockades, bombings, and starvation at the hands of the Israeli government. Food, medical supplies, oil, water, energy and access to education are denied to Palestinians living under Israeli occupation. In the face of this onslaught, Palestinians resist. We in No One Is Illegal – Toronto support that resistance.

As a migrant justice organization, we are in solidarity with all peoples opposing policies of occupation, exploitation and displacement from Turtle Island to Palestine. We demand the right to freedom of movement of the Palestinian people and the right of return. We stand in solidarity with the campaign of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israeli Apartheid. We denounce Canada’s complicity in the killing and occupation of the Palestinian people. We stand side by side with the people of Gaza in their struggle against war and occupation.

No One Is Illegal – Toronto endorses actions taken by allied groups against the Israeli apartheid regime and urges all supporters to join in these actions.

Free Palestine!
