Campaign for Canada to Vote at the UN for Palestinian Rights Initiated


A campaign has been initiated to urge Government Of Canada to vote in favor of upcoming on a resolutions related to Palestinian rights at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

The petition states;

"Canadians have long been alarmed about Canada’s trend to vote against resolutions relating to the political struggle over Palestine/Israel at the UNGA. Since 2006 our government has voted consistently against the ideals and values of Canadians rooted in our constitution that all people should have the right to self-determination. The Palestinian people are no exception.

Canadians voiced their support in 2019 when the Canadian government shifted its vote for the first time in a decade at the UNGA. It was a remarkable moment that Canadians chose to believe was a step forward in aligning Canada’s UN voting practices to Canada’s foreign policy to support a two-state solution, including the creation of a Palestinian state living side by side in peace and security with Israel.

This year, Canada cannot reverse course. In fact, we urge our government to broaden its support beyond the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination to including the UNRWA, permanent sovereignty of the Palestinian people in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, assistance to the Palestinian people, the peaceful settlement of the question of Palestine and other resolutions.

As of November 17th, over 2800 emails have been sent to the Honourable Minister of Foreign Affairs François-Philippe Champagne, and members of parliament across the country urging for Canada to vote along the majority of our international allies in support of Palestinian human rights."
