The Vancouver Tenants Union stands in solidarity with the Palestinian people. We strongly condemn the violence wrought by decades of occupation by the Israeli state, and the retaliatory and genocidal war that this state has declared against the Palestinian people. We mourn the deaths of all in this war, and we stand in support of members of our organization who have been directly and indirectly affected by the most recent attacks. We call on all people of conscience to speak out to demand an immediate ceasefire and an end to the illegal occupation of Palestinian land. We recognize that staying neutral on this issue is tantamount to condoning the decades of violence perpetrated by the Israeli state.
