Day of Action November 12, calling for Ceasefire NOW
Millions of people around the world have been marching in support of an immediate ceasefire in Israel-Palestine and to end the unprecedented humanitarian disaster unfolding in Gaza.
Ceasefire NOW, supported by the National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE), which is a national union HSA is affiliated to, is making this urgent appeal to stage a pan-Canadian day of action in every part of the country, on Sunday, November 12.
The goal of the November 12 day of action is to build a massive turnout in every part of the country–not just thousands, but tens or hundreds of thousands.
So far, two events are planned in British Columbia – in Grand Forks and Victoria. Events are being added daily.
