Organizing for a ceasefire and an end to the occupation of Palestine

In this episode, we look at the ongoing genocide in Gaza, and the urgent need for a ceasefire and an end to the occupation of Palestine by the Israeli state. 

The episode features Dania Majid, a Palestinian activist and lawyer with the Arab-Canadian Lawyers Association, Suzanne Weiss a Holocaust survivor, author, activist, and James Clark a Spring member and organizer. You’ll also hear a poem from Maysam Ghani recited at a recent vigil for Gaza organized by the Palestinian Youth Movement. 

If you’re part of an organization, please go to CeasfireNow.ca to see if your organization has endorsed the call for an immediate ceasefire, end to the blockade, and restoration of humanitarian aid. If you don’t see them there, ask the leaders why not, and encourage them to join the growing coalition. You can also use the ‘Email Your MP’ tool on the website to pressure your elected representatives.

This episode was recorded on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee, and the Wendat peoples.

It was produced by Spencer Bridgman, Rajean Hoilett, Carlie Macfie, and Josh Frame, with original music by Benjamin Bilgen. To read and listen to more from Spring, and find out how to join the Spring Socialist Network, please go to SpringMag.ca.
