Demand immediate action to help Gazan children

Currently Stephen Harper and the Conservative Party of Canada has refused to take in and treat injured and dying palestinian children, claiming that they’re safer where they are. This is despite the fact that local hospitals are inadequately staffed and pushed beyond capacity due to the recent assault on Gaza by Israel.

Airlines have been arranged; local hospitals have agreed to take on and treat these children and the Ontario government has pledged to help. Still our government and its blind support of Israel refuses to allow this to happen. They’re the only thing stopping this. I am ashamed of this government.

Please sign this petition by the NDP and share it. Demand that the Canadian government make the ethical choice in this matter. No matter what your political opinions are, saving the lives of vulnerable children should be something we can all get behind.

Children from Palestinian refugee camps in the southern Lebanese city of Sidon lie on the ground wrapped with the Palestinian flag, on July 27, 2014, as they stage a performance organised by the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) in support of the children from the Gaza Strip. UNICEF, the UN agency for children, has said 192 children have been killed since Israel’s devastating offensive on Gaza started on July 8, 2014.
