If you ignore the deaths in Gaza, you are complicit in our slaughter - On Monday, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner revelled in the opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem. That day, 58 unarmed Palestinian protesters were killed in Gaza. And more have died since. Between the massacre in Gaza and the celebrations in Jerusalem, the world has once more been exposed to the true reality of Palestine...
Trudeau calling for independent probe of reported use of 'excessive force' in Gaza shootings - Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is calling for answers after a Canadian doctor was among hundreds injured in a violent clash at the Gaza border Monday, while condemning what he calls an "excessive use of force." Two days after a bloody encounter with Israeli soldiers killed more than 50 Palestinians and wounded many more...
Mr. Trudeau - keep your promise! - Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called for an independent investigation of Israel's shooting of Canadian doctor Tarek Loubani, and the killing of over 100 Gaza protesters. Trudeau is under incredible pressure from the pro-Israel lobby to roll back his statement, so we must demonstrate that Canadians support his statement. Complete this form to send an email of support to Trudeau as well as your own MP!
The man who’s fighting girls’ ‘mathematophobia’ - As a teenager beginning high school in his Ivory Coast homeland, Ismael Mourifié looked around his classroom and understood something was inherently wrong. He’d been placed in the math stream based on an admission exam that determined aptitude. But among the almost 45 students, there were only four or five girls. The next year, that number dropped to two...

MPs push for Myanmar regime to face international criminal court - The UK must support efforts to refer Myanmar’s regime to the international criminal court over evidence of state-sanctioned ethnic cleansing of Rohingya people and human rights abuses, according to MPs on the international development select committee. They also called for a complete review of UK aid to Myanmar, which was worth £100m in 2018...
Myanmar: the perfect opportunity for Canada to show up - “We can't build a better world unless we work together, respect our differences, protect the vulnerable, and stand up for the things that matter most.” That’s part of what Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told the United Nations General Assembly in a speech last fall. Trudeau’s statement is indicative of the leadership Canada must take to deliver the conditions necessary for refugees from Myanmar to return home...
The Rohingya's hope for justice lies with the ICC - When I visited Bangladesh a few weeks ago, I heard heart-wrenching stories from some of the hundreds of thousands of Rohingya people who have fled atrocities in Myanmar. I met women who had been raped by soldiers, children who had seen their parents shot dead before their very eyes, and families who had lost everything. But if there was one thing that united almost all survivors, it was the desire for justice...
The Kachin conflict: No end in sight - The Rohingya crisis receives most of the global media’s attention currently due to the scale and magnitude of the humanitarian crisis that is unfolding there and rightly so. However, there is another deadly ongoing conflict in Myanmar...
