It's Time For the NDP To Stand for Democracy And Human Rights for Palestinians
"A resolution has been submitted to the NDP Convention to update the NDP's policy on Palestine. Despite widespread support - 26 riding associations in six provinces voted to endorse it -- this resolution was assigned an impossibly low priority in the listing of foreign affairs resolutions for discussion at Convention.
It's a familiar pattern from what should be a bygone era when NDP candidates selected by riding associations were swept aside by headquarters because of their views on Palestine. To enable the Palestine Resolution to reach the floor, be discussed and voted on, delegates need to go to the priority-setting panel on foreign affairs early on February 16 at the Convention in Ottawa.
NDP members across the country who care about democracy and human rights for Palestinians as much as for anyone else need to let Canadian delegates know that the time for change is long overdue. Supporters can follow and share #PalestineResoNDP on social media to help spread the word."
"Thanks to the anti-democratic ndp national director who prioritized PalestineResoNDP last, and to Jagmeet Singh whose caucus stopped it...Where's the Love and Courage for Palestinians?"
