Canadian Artists and Cultural Workers Voice Solidarity With Palestinian Struggle Against Occupation and Apartheid

Over 1,000 Canadian cultural workers and artists have signed an open letter, written in French and English, in solidarity with Palestinians living under occupation. In the missive, they urge “Canadian art organizations and institutions to end any form of collaboration with Israeli state-financed and sponsored art and cultural activities with Israel.”

In recent weeks, hundreds of Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces. Israel says the attacks were a response to rockets launched by Hamas, which killed at least a dozen people. Since the latest escalation in the occupied territories, which is the deadliest attack in the region since 2014, journalists and cultural workers’ demands for balanced coverage have increased.

Earlier this month, over 2,000 signed an “open letter to Canadian newsrooms on covering Israel-Palestine” beseeching more “fair and balanced coverage” on the occupation from journalist organizations. In response, two journalists from CBC, the country’s national broadcaster, were barred from covering the Israel-Palestine conflict after signing the missive. A CBC spokesperson told VICE World News that the organization is assuring “editorial distance between signatories (of the letter) and our daily coverage for the near future.”

In another show of solidarity, thousands flooded the streets of cities across Canada this month to demonstrate their support for Palestinians, urging the Canadian government impose military and economic sanctions on Israel.

But opposition to the allegedly skewed perspective in Canadian media has been ongoing for many years. In 2017, legal scholar Azeezah Kanji wrote an opinion article in the Toronto Star, following former US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, calling out the mainstream Canadian media’s failure to properly contextualize Israeli occupation in its coverage.

In today’s open letter, artists and cultural workers also called upon the Canadian media to reform its coverage, saying: “It is time to end the decades of suppression of the Palestinian narrative by the Canadian media and political interest groups.” Read the newly released statement in English and French below.

We, the undersigned Canadian artists and cultural workers, support the Palestinian people in their seven decades of struggle for freedom, liberation, and the Palestinian refugees’ right of return. We call upon the Canadian government to impose military and economic sanctions on Israel and end its complicity in the oppression of Palestinians.

We are deeply shocked by the recent developments on the ground in Palestine/Israel — the fourth bombardment since 2009 in Gaza. The death toll of 260 lives, including 62 children, and the random destruction of residential buildings, hospitals, schools, and infrastructure, constitute war crimes. Enough is enough. The two million Palestinians in Gaza, over 70% of whom are refugees, forcibly expelled from their homes during the establishment of the state of Israel, have also suffered a brutal land, air, and sea blockade imposed by Israel since 2007. Since 2018, people in Gaza have held weekly marches in the Israeli military buffer zone, insisting and demanding to fulfill their right to return to their villages across the dividing border.

In the West Bank, Israel continues its illegal military occupation, dispossession, and displacement of Palestinians, manifested in the forceful expulsion of Palestinians from their homes, the demolition of thousands of homes, the seizure of land, and the building of illegal Israeli-Jewish settlement colonies, and Israeli-only roads. The military occupation system has also fragmented the Palestinian community with 700 kilometers of a 9-meter high concrete wall and hundreds of military checkpoints, controlling the Palestinians’ movements, social and cultural connectivity, and economic activities. In addition, thousands of Palestinians have been incarcerated in Israeli prisons, and the occupation forces terrorize civilians with regular night raids. In Israel, the current violence carried out by Israeli police and Israeli Jewish citizens against the Palestinian citizens of Israel, including lynching, shooting, attacking, arresting, and marking homes of Palestinians, reveals decades of systemic discrimination against indigenous Palestinians.

Let us name it for what it is: apartheid and settler colonialism with the aim of ethnic cleansing.

Silence in times of injustice is tantamount with complicity with the oppressor. The latest reports by Human Rights Watch and the Israeli human rights organization, B’Tselem, clearly demonstrate with rigorous research that Israel is committing war crimes.

We support the international Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israeli companies and organizations and the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) and call upon Canadian art organizations and institutions to end any form of collaboration with Israeli state-financed and sponsored art and cultural activities with Israel. We declared our support for the historic South African fight against apartheid – the same should apply to Palestine’s struggle against the Israeli apartheid state.

It is time to end the decades of suppression of the Palestinian narrative by the Canadian media and political interest groups. We are moved to speak out against the ongoing violence and destruction of the Palestinian people’s homes, their natural environment, farmlands, and resources. We are furthermore determined to work towards the end of the dehumanization of the Palestinian people as a result of decades of support that has been given to the settler-colonial state of Israel.

Déclaration des artistes et travailleur·euse·s culturel·le·s canadien·ne·s en soutien à la lutte du peuple palestinien contre l’occupation militaire, le siège, la colonisation et l’apartheid

Nous, les artistes et travailleur·euse·s culturel·le·s canadien·ne·s soussigné·e·s, soutenons le peuple palestinien dans ses sept décennies de lutte pour la liberté, la libération et le droit de retour des réfugié·e·s palestinien·ne·s. Nous demandons au gouvernement canadien d’imposer des sanctions militaires et économiques à Israël et de mettre fin à sa complicité dans l’oppression des Palestinien·ne·s.

Nous sommes profondément choqué·e·s par les récents développements sur le terrain en Palestine/Israël – le quatrième bombardement depuis 2009 à Gaza. Le bilan de 260 morts, dont 62 enfants, et la destruction aléatoire de bâtiments résidentiels, d’hôpitaux, d’écoles et d’infrastructures constituent des crimes de guerre. Trop, c’est trop. Les deux millions de Palestinien·ne·s de Gaza, dont plus de 70 % sont des réfugié·e·s, expulsé·e·s de force de leurs foyers lors de la création de l’État d’Israël, subissent également un violent blocus terrestre, aérien et maritime imposé par Israël depuis 2007.  Depuis 2018, les habitant·e·s de Gaza organisent des marches hebdomadaires dans la zone tampon militaire israélienne en exigeant de pouvoir réaliser leur droit au retour dans leurs villages, de l’autre côté de la frontière.

En Cisjordanie, Israël poursuit son occupation militaire illégale, la dépossession et le déplacement des Palestinien·ne·s, qui se manifestent par l’expulsion forcée des Palestinien·ne·s, la démolition de milliers de maisons, la saisie de terres, et la construction de colonies de peuplement illégales israélo-juives ainsi que de routes réservées aux Israélien·ne·s. Le système d’occupation militaire a également fragmenté la communauté palestinienne avec 700 kilomètres de mur en béton de 9 mètres de haut et des centaines de points de contrôle militaires, limitant les mouvements des Palestinien·ne·s, leurs liens sociaux et culturels, ainsi que leurs activités économiques. En outre, des milliers de Palestinien·ne·s ont été incarcéré·e·s dans les prisons israéliennes et les forces d’occupation terrorisent les civil·e·s par des raids nocturnes réguliers. En Israël, la violence actuelle exercée par la police israélienne et les citoyen·ne·s juif·ve·s israélien·ne·s contre les citoyen·ne·s palestinien·ne·s d’Israël, y compris le lynchage, les tirs, les attaques, les arrestations et le marquage des maisons des Palestinien·ne·s, révèle des décennies de discrimination systémique contre les Palestinien·ne·s autochtones.

Nous devons appeler cela pour ce que c’est : l’apartheid et le colonialisme de peuplement dans le but d’un nettoyage ethnique.

Le silence en période d’injustice équivaut à une complicité avec l’oppresseur. Les derniers rapports de Human Rights Watch et de l’organisation israélienne de défense des droits de la personne, B’Tselem, démontrent clairement, grâce à des recherches rigoureuses, qu’Israël commet des crimes de guerre.

Nous soutenons le mouvement international de boycott, désinvestissement et sanctions (BDS) contre les entreprises et organisations israéliennes, ainsi que la Campagne palestinienne pour le boycott académique et culturel d’Israël (PACBI), et nous demandons aux organisations et institutions artistiques canadiennes de mettre fin à toute forme de collaboration avec les activités artistiques et culturelles financées et parrainées par l’État israélien. Nous avons déclaré notre soutien à la lutte historique de l’Afrique du Sud contre l’apartheid – il devrait en être de même pour la lutte de la Palestine contre l’État d’apartheid israélien.

Il est temps de mettre fin aux décennies de suppression du récit palestinien par les médias canadiens et les groupes d’intérêts politiques. Nous sommes déterminé·e·s à dénoncer la violence et la destruction continues des maisons du peuple palestinien, de son environnement naturel, de ses terres agricoles et de ses ressources. Nous sommes en outre déterminé·e·s à œuvrer dans le but de mettre fin à la déshumanisation du peuple palestinien, résultat de décennies de soutien à l’État colonial d’Israël.

Over 1,000 Canadian cultural workers and artists have signed an open letter, written in French and English, in solidarity with Palestinians living under occupation. In the missive, they urge “Canadian art organizations and institutions to end any form of collaboration with Israeli state-financed and sponsored art and cultural activities with Israel.” In recent weeks, hundredsRead MoreArtHyperallergicRead More
