CUSJ joined a host of signatories in saluting the Green Party of Canada for its motion in support of freedom, justice and equality in Israel/Palestine. This formal nod of appreciation to the GPC was announced in a press release on Nov. 28th, sponsored by the Palestine House and Students Against Israeli Apartheid (SAIA) at York University (Toronto). The press release reads, in part that:
We encourage all Green Party members to support this courageous position, which is a major vote of confidence for all those working for a just and lasting peace in the Middle East.
We, the undersigned, and our thousands of members, are made proud Canadians by the Green Party’s principled stance with the occupied people of Palestine.
The GPC will be voting on the motion at a Special General Meeting on December 3 and 4 2016, in Calgary Alberta.
