The Jewish Women’s Committee to End the Occupation
(JWCEO) was established in 1989 in response to the
first Intifada (Uprising) in Palestine. They are
against the military violence of Israel against
Palestinians and call for an immediate end of
Israeli’s war on terror which includes killing of
adults and children, house demolition, illegal arrest
and detentions, mass unemployment, and the building of
Apartheid Wall.

The group has been active inside the Jewish community
and with many Arab and anti-war activists to speak out
against Israeli brutality against Palestinians. They
hold vigil in front of the Israeli Consulate in
Toronto every Friday from 5-6pm. They work towards
divestment from Israeli products. They speak publicly
at demonstrations, rallies, panels and conferences.
They also stand in opposition to the annual Israeli
Day parade in Toronto.

Please join us on August 26 to listen to speeches by
members of the JWCEO and meet with the group.
