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 at the end of the Muslim month of Ramadan.
On June 24, 2017, organizers in Edmonton will host the 6th annual Al-Quds Day rally. On this day, all across the planet, a commemoration is held to honour the Palestinian plight for justice. With the current series of bloodshed, torture and injustice, we cannot afford to remain silent.
Remember, you don’t need to be Palestinian to care, you simply have to be human.
Confirmed speakers include Dr. Ghada Ageel (editor of Apartheid in Palestine) and Carmen Jarrah (author of Smuggled Stories from the Holy Land).
