Photo essay by Sabrien Amrov on Montreal demonstration in solidarity with Gaza



Montreal, Quebec December 2008: In response to the current Israeli bombardment on the Gaza Strip, hundreds gathered in downtown Montreal to protest the Israeli assault which has until now killed an estimated 300 Palestinians, the majority civilians. Air strikes continue to pound Gaza for the fourth consecutive day, as high level Israeli officials have labelled the offensive an "all-out war", while from Beirut to Cairo major protests have swept across the Middle East. Additional protests and actions in solidarity with Gaza will occur in Montreal within the upcoming days.

In Montreal protesters specifically denounced the resounding silence from the current Conservative government in relation to the current Israeli strikes on Gaza. Since taking office the Conservative government has staunchly backed Israel, including in 2006 when Prime Minister Stephen Harper labelled Israel's bombardment of Lebanon a "measured response", as over 1000 Lebanese civilians lost their lives under the Israeli bombardment. Beyond reacting to the current assault on Gaza protesters also chanted in support of the growing international movement for boycott, divestment and sanctions to be applied by the international community on the Israeli government, a campaign that is gaining traction in multiple countries internationally.




As long as we have memories, yesterday remains.
   As long as we have hope, tomorrow awaits.
