Alberta Government’s Response to the Ongoing Middle East Violence
Write a letter today to the Leaders of Alberta regarding the recent reprehensible attacks and escalation of violence in Palestinians.
The most recent escalation has been triggered by the ongoing expulsion of Palestinian families from their homes and the subsequent raids on Al Aqsa mosque on one of the holiest days of Ramadan.
Specifically, we write to support MLAs on both sides of the aisle who have spoken up in their local constituencies on this issue. Speaking out on human rights isn’t a question of jurisdiction – it’s the most Albertan thing you can do. It’s further important – as you, Premier, and you, Leader Notley, have done on numerous occasions – to continue to condemn Islamophobia, anti-Arab racism, anti-Semitism, and any forms of hate and discrimination in Alberta.
The acts of the Israeli government are continuations of Israel’s settlement policy which is not only rooted in a flagrant violation of basic human rights, but also a violation of international law and all associated norms and protocols accepted across the world.
Premier, and Leader Notley, as you have seen thousands of Albertans who have protested to call for an end to the violence, we ask you to ensure that those in your respective caucuses who have spoken up on this issue are supported, not silenced..
Join us in writing a letter today to the Leaders of Alberta regarding the recent reprehensible attacks and escalation of violence in Palestinians.
