RALLY & MARCH - Saturday July 29 - Toronto


Israel out of Lebanon and Palestine!
No to NATO occupation!
End Bush - Harper war drive!

Saturday, July 29
Israeli Consulate
180 Bloor Street West

(west of Avenue Road, north side of Bloor)

*** Saturday's demonstration will include a rally and a march which will end at the United States Consulate, 360 University Avenue. Parking for buses and cars picking up demonstrators at the end of the rally is available behind Toronto City Hall, east of University Avenue on Armoury Street, opposite the US Consulate.

Between ten and fifteen thousand people marched last Saturday through the streets of Toronto to oppose Israel's bombing campaign of Lebanon and Gaza and to condemn Stephen Harper's whole-hearted support for war. But that was only the first step. This Saturday, we need to march again.

Israel's onslaught against Lebanon and Palestine has only intensified, despite mounting pressure from world leaders for an immediate cease-fire. Official numbers suggest hundreds have been killed. The real number killed is likely in the thousands. Nearly one million people in Lebanon have been made homeless. Four United Nations observers - inlcuding one Canadian - have been killed by indiscriminate Israeli bombs. CSIS harassment of the Arab and Muslim community has been stepped up.

Join us in the streets yet again to show that the anti-war movement is not going away. In fact, we're getting bigger. And we'll keeping marching until the bombing stops.
