The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil,
but because of the people who don't do anything about it

Mon Feb. 21, Tel Aviv and Ramallah: Joint Vigils at Canadian Embassies
RE: Simultaneous protest vigils opposite the Representative Office of Canada to the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah and the Embassy of Canada to Israel in Tel Aviv
We, members of the Committee for the Defence of the Rights of the Latrun Villages, urge you to join us at a protest vigil to be held simultaneously opposite the Representative Office of Canada to the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah and in parallel opposite the Embassy of Canada to Israel in Tel Aviv on Monday, 21.2.2011, beginning 11:00 through 13:00.
The vigils will submit a Memorandum to the Representative of Canada to the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah and the Ambassador of Canada in Tel Aviv respectively protesting their evasion with reference to the request below submitted on behalf of families of the Latrun villages, forcibly expelled from their villages in the 1967 war by criminal action of ethnic cleansing classified as a crime against humanity under international law.
The banners of the vigils read:
CANADA PARK IS COMPLICIT WITH A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY PERPETRATED IN OUR VILLAGES
WE DEMAND THAT THE GOVERNMENT OF CANADA RECOGNIZE AND ACT TO IMPLEMENT THE RIGHTS OF THE PEOPLE OF THE LATRUN VILLAGES
WE DEMAND THE NULLIFICATION OF THE LEGAL STATUS OF THE JEWISH NATIONAL FUND (JNF) IN CANADA
It is in order to point out that over the past year or so we have written again and again to the Representative Office of Canada to the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah requesting that (given that some representatives of the Latrun villages are denied travel permits to Tel Aviv) we meet Ambassador of Canada to Israel in Ramallah with the view to touring with him the Latrun area and the visiting the remains of the destroyed villages over whose ruins the Jewish National Fund (JNF) has planted `Canada Park`.
In the hope that you are able to join us at our protest vigils
