Dec 12, 2022 — All day
The Human Rights Research and Education Centre (HRREC) and Amnesty International Canada present:
Some reflections on the latest Amnesty International report on Israel
Far from arousing a positive reaction in the sense of an awareness on the part of the Israeli authorities of the horror of the occupation of territories theoretically destined for an independent Palestine, the has been greeted with anger and accusations of anti-Semitism... Why? Netanyahu's return to power is already worsening the situation in the West Bank. What can we expect? The Canadian government remains silent, like so many others... and the situation is getting worse.
