Edmonton is hosting its third annual Al-Quds Day rally. The International Day of al-Quds is an annual event, supporting a just peace for Palestine, and opposing apartheid Israel’s control of Jerusalem (al-Quds in Arabic: القـُدْس), the international city that stands as a powerful symbol to three of the world’s great religious traditions. It is held each year on the last Friday of the Muslim month of Ramadhan.
With the current Israeli massacre in Gaza and the increased levels of repression in Occupied East Jerusalem and the Occupied West Bank, this year’s Al-Quds day is far more than just a day of international commemoration. With the current bloodshed, torture, and injustice happening Palestine, we cannot afford to remain silent. Please join us as we mobilize to make history! Be a part of this global movement. Please spread the word! Remember, you don’t need to be Palestinian to care, you simply have to be human. Free Palestine!
PSN is proud to support the organizers of this third rally in support of the people of Gaza and all of Palestine, following up on emergency solidarity rallies held in Edmonton on July 8 and July 16.
