On Sunday, the Green Party took a courageous stand in supporting the BDS movement. It is vitally important for those of us who support an end to the illegal military occupation in Palestine to thank the Greens.
Currently, the leadership of the Green Party is under tremendous pressure. A reliable source has told me the Green’s have received over 1,000 letters from those who oppose BDS since the vote on Sunday. The pro-Netanyahu government forces in Canada are extremely well funded, highly resourced and vicious when anyone or any group with a public profile offers any support to Palestinians and Israelis who long for a just peace. Subsequently, the Greens need to know there are many Canadians who support BDS and appreciate the decision of he Green Party.
I urge you and plead with you to take five minutes and write the Green Party to thank them for their decision to support the nonviolent BDS movement. The email address is: www.greenparty.ca/en/contact
The letter can be as simple as:
As a supporter of human rights and the rule of international law I wish to thank the Green Party for its support of the non-violent BDS movement.
Peace, Salaam, Shalom, Paix,
United Network for Justice and Peace in Palestine and Israel
