The bombing of the Al-Ahli hospital in Gaza is a horrific war crime committed by the Zionist Netanyahu government. It is a key part of its policy to annex Gaza, killing or driving out the Palestinian population. This is ethnic cleansing. This is genocide. This is fascism. These are crimes against humanity that the Canadian government, the labour and democratic movements, and people of good conscience everywhere must condemn and oppose. Failure to speak out now is complicity.

There is a way out:
• An immediate ceasefire
• Withdrawal of all Israeli troops from Gaza
• End the blockade of Gaza: turn on the water, electricity and transport food and medicine
• Implement UN resolutions to create a Palestinian state based on Israel’s 1967 borders; with Jerusalem as the capital, including the right to return

The US government is complicit in this genocide with its massing of warships and fighter jets off the coast of Gaza which the US President states are there to support Israel, and the slaughter of Palestinians.

The Communist Party of Canada stands with the Palestinian people and calls on people of conscience everywhere to protest Israel’s war crimes, and to demand that the Canadian government and Parliament end their support for Israel’s genocide.
