RALLY and MARCH
GLOBAL BOYCOTT, DIVESTMENT, SANCTIONS DAY OF ACTION
Saturday March 26, 2011
MEET AT KING AND BAY
Our universities and pension plans are invested in corporations that carry out
apartheid, environmental degradation, and the displacement of indigenous people
worldwide. On the anniversary of Palestinian Land Day and the BDS Global Day
of Action, we march in the financial district to say:
END CANADIAN SUPPORT FOR APARTHEID: DIVEST NOW!
We salute people’s uprisings in the Middle East and the struggle for freedom,
justice, and equality everywhere.
Bring noisemakers and flags!
Organized by the Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid www.caiaweb.org

A Short History of Land Day and the BDS Day of Action
1976 – Israeli military forces shot and killed six young Palestinian citizens
of Israel protesting the Israeli government’s expropriation of Palestinian
land to build new Jewish-only colonies and to expand existing ones. Every
March 30, Palestinian Land Day commemorates this loss.
2005 – Palestinian civil society calls for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions
against Israeli Apartheid.
2009 – First Global BDS Day of Action is launched on Land Day, March 30.
