In the aftermath of the unthinkable terrorist attack that took the lives of three generations of the Afzal family in London, Ontario, a unanimous consent motion was passed in the House of Commons that stated the following:
That, given that,
(i) Canada has been devastated over the last decade by repeated acts of violent Islamophobia, including but not exclusive to the Quebec City Mosque Attack, the IMO Mosque Attack, and the London Terror Attack,
(ii) Canada has been deeply affected by Islamophobia at a federal, provincial, territorial, and municipal level,
Le français suit.
NCCM Recommendations: National Summit on Islamophobia
More Muslims have been killed in targeted hate-attacks in Canada than any other G-7 country in the past 5 years because of Islamophobia.
That fact sunk in outside the London Muslim Mosque on June 8 of this year, when thousands of Londoners gathered in the aftermath of the terror attack that took the lives of four members of the Canadian Muslim community in an unthinkable act of Islamophobic violence. The thousands that gathered that day were there to show their solidarity, pray, and stand ...
Action Alert: Stand Up Against Harassment of Toronto Star Columnist Shree Parakdar
In recent days and weeks, it has been deeply disturbing to witness the harassment faced by Shree Paradkar, your Social and Racial Justice columnist.
All for speaking out against the ongoing violence suffered by innocent Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
Obviously, as you know, journalists have the right to speak truth without the fear of being attacked and harassed for doing their jobs.
Yet, as noted by the Canadian Association of Journalists, there has been a troubling spike ...
To Our Elected Members of Parliament:
The blessed month of Ramadan, observed by over two million Muslims in Canada and almost two billion Muslims worldwide, will be here in a few short weeks. A foundational pillar of Islam is fasting from dawn to sunset throughout this holy month. This devotional act is a powerful means of cultivating God-consciousness in our hearts and minds, inspiring self-reflection, and increasing empathy and good works. It is also a time when our places of worship overflow with Muslims gathering together to worship as a single community.
Action Alert: Canada Must Condemn the Rafah Attacks and Stop Sending Military Equipment to Israel NOW!
The military of Israel just killed another 67 people through air and sea attacks in Rafah in Southern Gaza.
Palestinians in Gaza must exit through Rafah as just the first step to being reunited with their loved ones in Canada. They have been anxiously waiting, only to be bombed and killed.
If we continue on our current course, Canada may be legally complicit in arming an extremist government that is in the process of ethnic cleansing and what the ICJ found ...
Action Alert: Write a letter to the Prime Minister telling him that Canada Must follow through on its promise to abide by the ICJ's Interim Ruling on Gaza.
Despite its ridiculous statement today, Canada previously promised to abide by the ICJ's interim ruling on Gaza.
The Court ruled today that Israel hasn't done enough to prevent genocide in Gaza. And ordered Israel to take immediate steps, which it will report back on in one month. That means Canada must abide by that ruling and act.
Tell our government to do these four things.
1. Tell the Prime ...

NCCM and Delegates Meet the Canadian Ambassador in Jordan
In the first-of-its-kind diplomatic engagement, NCCM and its delegates arrived at the Canadian Embassy in Jordan for a meeting with the Canadian Ambassador, Tarik Ali Khan. NCCM is traveling with Canadian MPs where they will get a first-hand view of the Occupation, hear stories directly from Palestinian refugees, and the violence that has persisted throughout the West Bank, including in Jerusalem.
Engagement with Civil Societies at the Canadian Embassy:
During their visit ...
For the past three months, violence, starvation, disease, and death have been inflicted upon the people of Gaza by Israel in ways that continue to shock Canadians and the international community.
The far-right Netanyahu government has led a campaign that has killed over 22,000 civilians in Gaza, almost a third of whom are children. Ample evidence has been provided in detail in the application put forward by South Africa of war crimes, and the intention to commit war crimes, against the Palestinian people by the Netanyahu government. To be clear, these genocidal intentions ...
Action Alert: Send a letter telling Prime Minister Trudeau that Canada should uphold International law and support South Africa’s case at the International Court of Justice.
For the past three months, bloodshed in the Gaza Strip has unfolded in ways that continue to shock the international community.
Thousands upon thousands of civilians, including children, have been killed by the bombardment and invasion by the military of Israel.
The international community, along with all those with good conscience, know that there must be a just accounting for what ...
Action Alert: Write this letter to the Prime Minister that Canada Must Place a Weapons Embargo On Arms Exports To Any Country Involved in Human Rights Abuses
Over the past two months, We have been horrified by the footage coming out of Gaza.
We have been horrified by the unthinkable amount of civilian deaths, especially children. We cannot accept that our nation, which upholds human rights, justice, and international law would allow the export of arms to any government is participating in international human rights law violations.
As a Canadian, We ask that ...
Action Alert: Write this letter to the Mayor of Montreal that Bochra Manai Must Not Be Removed as Anti-Racism Commissioner
We have seen the recent calls to remove Anti-Racism Commissioner Bochra Manai. To replace Bochra Manai, who has fulfilled her role as the Anti-Racism Commissioner dutifully and faithfully for attending a rally that simply called for the end of indiscriminate bombing against civilians, would be tantamount to supporting the ongoing murder of innocent children, women, elderly, and men in Gaza.
Additionally, if Bochra were to be terminated from ...
Action Alert: Send a Letter to Minister Melanie Joly About the UN Ceasefire Vote
Canada’s vote at the United Nations General Assembly called for a ceasefire.
Make it clear that Canada’s vote for a ceasefire is an important step. Over 70% of Canadians want the violence to end in Gaza and this vote is a reflection of that. Our voices must be heard.
