as stephen harper rubbed shoulders with the israeli prime minister yesterday in toronto, israeli commandos were getting ready to raid the flotillas--which were carrying civilian activists. there are countless injuries and activists were killed. the israeli forces are claiming they were attacked first--a justification that has no weight when you're an armed force and you're attacking civilians in international waters.
there is a live streaming video here.
EMERGENCY PICKET – TODAY MAY 31
5-7PM OUTSIDE ISRAELI CONSULATE
"Israel has used military force on the peaceful flotilla taking humanitarian aid to the besieged Gaza Strip. Israel has murdered several unarmed civilians (at least 10 confirmed so far). Again we see the Israeli apartheid state acting with full impunity outside the boundaries of international law while the the Harper government welcomes Prime Minister Netanyahu with open arms.
We will be out today to tell Israel and all its supporters it can not get away with its crimes against humanity without worldwide protest. "
Time: 5-7 pm
Location: Israeli Consulate (180 Bloor St. West)
