Joint statement by Palestinians & Supporters
in North America on Nakba Day


(IMAGE: PALESTINIAN YOUTH MOVEMENT)


May 15, 2021

As we mark the 73rd anniversary of the Nakba, we, the undersigned, join together to reaffirm our commitment to the Palestinian people’s struggle for justice, return, and liberation. We commemorate the loss experienced by Palestinians in 1948 when hundreds of thousands of our people were forced into exile and saw their homes and villages stolen or destroyed by Zionist militias. To this day, colonization and dispossession remain ongoing processes, where Palestinians continue to endure land theft and encroachments on their basic rights. Despite the multiple decades of Zionist brutality, our resilient people remain committed to resisting Zionist settler-colonialism and to the liberation of Palestine.

MAWO Joins New "Hands Off Syria" Ad-Hoc Coalition

Mobilization Against War and Occupation (MAWO) is one of the initiators of an important new ad-hoc coalition against imperialist intervention in Syria called “US Hands Off Syria”. We encourage all of our members and supporters to sign-on to the points of unity statement and find out more about the coalition here:

U.S. HANDS OFF SYRIA COALITION -
POINTS OF UNITY STATEMENT




Great show of solidarity at "U.S Hands Off Iraq" protest!

On Sunday May 10, 2015 MAWO co-organized with the Iraqi and Muslim community in Vancouver a protest rally against the United States intervention and meddling in Iraq, demanding "US Out of Iraq".

The protest rally took place in front of the US consulate in Vancouver. The protest was observed by hundreds of pedestrians who were walking to and from the waterfront area and many of them either stopped, picked up fliers and brochures or joined the protest.

We also had a surprise guest, world renown British comedian and social justice activist Russell Brand stopped by, spent some time with protesters and also shared some supportive words in solidarity with the Iraqi people and against US intervention in Iraq!

STATEMENTS


U.S./SAUDI ARABIA HANDS OFF YEMEN!
SELF-DETERMINATION FOR YEMEN!


April 22, 2015

For one month Saudi Arabia, with the backing of the US, has devastated Yemen with a brutal and criminal bombing campaign. According to UN estimates, over 1,100 innocent Yemeni people have been killed. UNICEF last week released a report that by conservative estimates, more than 115 children have been killed by the Saudi-led war on Yemen. The indiscriminate bombing campaign against Yemen has created a humanitarian crisis where basic infrastructure has been destroyed, over 150,000 people have been displaced from their homes, and 12 million people in Yemen do not know where there next meal is coming from.

NO WAR ON SYRIA!
This is Not a War on ISIS/ISIL,
it is the New Imperialist War Drive in the Middle East!


February 20, 2015

For almost four years the United States and other imperialist governments have been actively engaged ina bloody campaign to overthrow the government of Syria. They have been limited so far to imposing a cruel civil war upon the country by pumping it full of anti-government mercenaries. Throughout this entire time they have been constantly searching for an excuse to justify a full scale military intervention. Now they think they finally have one in a so called “the war against ISIS/ISIL”.

More than 190,000 people have been killed and 22 million displaced because of the installed civil war in Syria. Within this fiery chaos also emerged the armed group ISIS/ISIL. Nobody benefited more from the hyper-injection of foreign military aid and funding than they did, and thanks to the vacuum of power created in war torn areas, they also expanded across Syria and moved into Iraq...

NO TO ANOTHER U.S. WAR IN IRAQ!
CANADA HANDS OFF IRAQ AND SYRIA!
NO TO ALL FORMS OF TERRORISM!


October 24, 2014

Since the beginning of June 2014, the open wounds of Iraq caused by sanctions, wars and occupations have grown deeper. This is when the Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS, also known as ISIL) began an onslaught against Iraq, establishing control of important border crossings, cities and territories in Iraq through terrorist actions directed against Iraqi civilians. As of June 29, ISIS had taken control of Iraq's second largest city, Mosul, and declared a “Caliphate” state in the areas under their control in Northern Iraq in opposition to the Iraqi state. Fighting between ISIS and the Iraqi military forces continues, imposing more violence and destruction on the people of Iraq who are already facing the daily reality of a country devastated by over 11 years of U.S.-led war and occupation.

In response to the ISIS terrorist attacks, the U.S. government has sent 770 troops (with the possibility of many thousands more to be sent) into Iraq. The majority of them, 470, are charged with security of the gigantic U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.
