Another anti-annexation protest arose in Vancouver this past Sunday, taking their “global movement against racism and oppression” to the grounds of the Vancouver Art Gallery. A featured role was played by a relatively new entrant to the anti-Zionist parade, a radical Filipino university group called Sulong UBC..

“Our movements for liberation share an anti-imperialist character”, representative Lara Maestro told the anti-Israel crowd. “As the fight for national democracy in the Philippines continues against repression, militarization, and state fascism, especially with the signing of the draconian Anti-Terror Law,” she stated, “we must also fight alongside the Palestinian people against the inhumane, settler-colonial Israeli state and for the rights of Palestinians to land, national liberation, and self-determination.”

Her propaganda emphasized a link between “the revolutionary history of the Philippines (which) has similarly shown that youth are the vanguard of national reawakening,” and the pro-Palestinioan cause. “We draw inspiration and strength from the Palestinian student movement and its bravery in the face of extreme repression.” 

Reading from the same hatebook as the usual suspects, the demonization of Israel was on full display from Maestro at the microphone: “Among the recent tactics and numerous human rights abuses employed by Israel’s occupying forces are detentions without trial, torture, murders of unarmed protesters, blocking access to medical equipment and other resources, bombing hospitals and other infrastructure, demolition of countless homes, and denying detainees in prison proper healthcare during the pandemic.”, she intoned.

A few days prior to the march at VAC, the rally organizers were thanked for pumping up the tires of their newfound allies. “Stop the US War Machine, from Palestine to the Philippines! Grateful for this powerful message of solidarity from the Palestinian Youth Movement (PYM)- حركة الشباب الفلسطيني in support of Filipinos fighting against the Anti-Terror Law, and for genuine liberation in the Philippines. Long live international solidarity!”, Sulong UBC posted to their Facebook page.

Other speakers who had appeared at previous rallies once again reprised their starring roles in the parade of hate. Charlotte Kates, the international coordinator of prisoner support group Samidoun, alleged the widespread use of torture by Israeli interrogators, the arrest and imprisonment of Palestinian children and the targeting of Palestinian students. She closed with the genocidal chant, “from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free!”

In addition to the usual berating of the state of Israel and the United States, the Trudeau government was also assailed by protesters for “decades of complicity with Zionist colonialism in Palestine”, as they demanded an end to (their claims of) Israeli occupation, apartheid, settler colonialism and genocide. 

Speakers representing SPHR UBC discussed organizing and resisting inside and outside Palestine, while a representative of Independent Jewish Voices emphasized that Israel is a “colonial project”, emphasizing support for Palestinian and indigenous resistance.

At the conclusion of the anti-Israel protest, Kates called on those in attendance to join Samidoun for Days of Resistance, which she described as a way “to continue these actions between 7-9 August in cities and communities around the world to build on all of the committed organizing taken up by so many organizations and activists around the world on and around July 1 and the Day of Rage against Israeli annexation.”

TheJ.ca will continue to provide unmatched news coverage of the heightened protests from coast to coast, as radical activists from all stripes feel empowered to push the envelope and ramp up their rhetoric to sway public opinion and government policy towards a hostile stance against Israel.
