DABC joins the call for a ceasefire

Disability Alliance BC has joined over 260 humanitarian, civil society, faith, and labour organizations in calling on the Government of Canada to: 

  • Call for an immediate ceasefire in Israel-Palestine 
  • Call for an end to the blockade of Gaza and for the restoration of humanitarian aid and access to the basic necessities of life.

While the temporary ceasefire will provide some relief, it is not enough: a permanent ceasefire and an end to the Israeli occupation of Palestine is needed to put an end to widespread loss of life, displacement, and intense suffering.  

We condemn all targeting of innocent Palestinian and Israeli civilians, and the rise of Anti-Arab and anti-Palestinian racism, Islamophobia, and antisemitism in Canada and beyond. Palestinians, Israelis, and all people in the region deserve to live in peace and security and with justice for all. 

We encourage you to: sign a federal petition to the House of Commons, email your MP and political leaders, and join days of action if you’re able.
