Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid Victoria
Justice for Palestine
The Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid was formed in January 2006 as part of a growing, global movement against Israeli apartheid. We believe Israel is an apartheid state that resembles South African Apartheid. Palestinian citizens of Israel are denied from controlling and developing over 90% of land because they are Palestinian.
Palestinians expelled in 1948 and 1967 are denied the right to return to their homes and lands, despite the fact that anyone of Jewish background - from anywhere in the world - has the automatic right to become an Israeli citizen. In the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip, Palestinians live under separate and discriminatory military law.
The Canadian government provides extensive political and economic support to the Israeli apartheid regime. Canadian corporations profit through investments and joint operations with Israeli companies. We work to end all Canadian complicity in this apartheid state.
We are a network of concerned individuals and organizations working to
end this apartheid system.
Boycott, divestment and sanctions should be maintained until Israel meets
its obligation to recognize the Palestinian people's
inalienable right to self-determination and fully complies with the precepts
of international law by:
