As of 10:00 am this morning, a group of Jewish Canadian women have been occupying the Israeli consulate in Toronto, Canada. They are protesting Israeli attacks on the people of Gaza.
The group announced in a press release that they want to ensure that Jewish voices against the massacre in Gaza are being heard. Their stated demands are:
(1) that Israel end its military assault
(2) that Israel lift the 18-month siege on the Gaza Strip to allow humanitarian aid into the territory.
The group includes: Judy Rebick, professor; Judith Deutsch, psychoanalyst and president of Science for Peace; B.H. Yael, filmmaker; Smadar Carmon, a Canadian Israeli peace activist and others.
