Urge the government of Canada to ban Israeli settlement goods from entering the Canadian market.

 

CANADA: BAN ISRAELI SETTLEMENT GOODS

It’s time for Canada to stop enabling an economy that supports the growth of settlements on Palestinian land. 

 

STOP SUPPORTING ISRAELI SETTLERS ON OCCUPIED PALESTINIAN LAND

For the last 50 years, Israel has been forcing thousands of Palestinians off their land, occupying and illegally using it to create settlements that exclusively house Jewish Israeli settlers.

Entire Palestinian communities have been displaced by these settlements. Their homes and livelihoods have been destroyed, they’ve had restrictions enforced on their movement, access to their own water, land and other natural resources. The communities have also been violently attacked by the Israeli military and settlers. We must act now.

We want governments to stop enabling the economy that keeps these illegal settlements growing and fuels the suffering of Palestinians. You can help!

IT'S TIME FOR CANADA 
TO STOP FUELING
PALESTINIAN SUFFERING

The issue is not just about Israel taking Palestinian land and resources illegally. Governments around the world are letting goods produced in these settlements into their markets, and are allowing companies in their countries to operate in settlements. All of this helps the illegal settlements profit and thrive.

Help put an end to the cycle of violations. Join us in calling on the Canadian Government to ban Israeli settlement goods from entering Canadian markets, and stop companies based in Canada from operating in settlements or trading in their goods.

States must ban Israeli settlement products to help end half a century of violations against Palestinians

 
 


Dear Prime Minister Trudeau,

It is time for states including Canada to stop supporting illegal settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

For decades, the world has stood by as Israel has destroyed Palestinians’ homes and plundered their land and natural resources for profit. While the Palestinian economy has been stunted by 50 years of abusive policies, a thriving multimillion dollar settlement enterprise has been built out of the systematic oppression of the Palestinian population.

Fifty years on, merely condemning Israel’s settlement expansion is not enough. It’s time for concrete action to help put an end to the cycle of violations suffered by Palestinians living under Israel’s occupation.

I call on you to take measures to ban settlement goods and put in place laws and regulations that stop companies from operating in Israeli settlements or trading in settlement goods. 

Sincerely,
