“Boycotting is legal – it is our right!  It is non-violent, and a legitimate means of protest and pressure. CJPME would consider it a “badge of honour” to be condemned by Canadian politicians who don’t have the courage to stand up for freedom of expression.  As such, CJPME has issued a statement of defiance. CJPME has printed sticky notes with a strong “Boycott Israel” warning message. Sign up here to get a FREE PACK of these boycott sticky notes mailed to your home, or buy several packs here. Then head off to a local store to post these sticky note warnings on products.”Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (CJPME)

The following email from CJPME was received today. Please support this campaign. And consider sending an email to PM Trudeau (pm@pm.gc.ca ) and Foreign Affairs Minister Stephane Dion (stephane.dion@parl.gc.ca ) to express, in strongest terms, your disapproval of their blatant display of moral laxity and apparent ignorance of, or complicit blindness to, Israeli military brutality towards innocent Palestinians, especially children.

Damn the Politicians – Get free “boycott Israel” sticky notes from CJPME, Email message, received February 19, 2016

Earlier this week, spineless Canadian politicians debated a Conservative motion to condemn Canadian organizations which support the “boycott of Israel.”* The Liberal Party, in a pathetic performance, has said it would support the motion – so the motion will likely pass next week.  Such a motion directly contradicts Canadian laws on freedom of speech, and has no power of law.

Get a FREE pack of boycott sticky notes, and join with CJPME in defying our gutless politicians!

Many Canadians are unaware of Israel’s human rights abuses, and many don’t even know when they’re buying products from Israel. These sticky notes are designed to raise awareness about the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement and inform consumers on where their products are coming from. The BDS movement has been very successful, as evidenced by the fact that Canadian politicians are debating it in parliament. On Jan. 12th, the United Methodist Church in the US chose to divest from five Israeli banks implicated in Israel’s illegal “settlements,” and French telecom giant, Orange, is pulling out of Israel, effective this month.

To learn more about the BDS movement overall, click here.  To see what Canadian stores sell Israeli products, go to CJPME’s Boycott Centre.

Marking boycotted products in stores was a key step in the boycott of Apartheid South Africa – it can also be a key element in the boycott of Israel. Sign up to get your free sticky notes and do your part in stopping Israel’s human rights violations.

Remember to TAKE PICTURES and post them to our Facebook page or send your photos to info@cjpme.org. We’d love to share all your great work in properly marking Israeli made merchandise for boycott.

If you believe in CJPME’s work, please also consider donating so we can expand our impact. When we all pitch in, we can make a huge difference!
