Palestine Advocacy and the Law in Canada: 2021 in review and looking forward
As we approach the end of 2021, we reflect on the shifts in Palestine advocacy over this year and its interface with law in Canada, doing so in the context of what is happening in Palestine and internationally.

Join Canadian lawyers, Shane Martínez, James Kafieh, and Andrea Sobko, as they discuss Palestine advocacy and the law. Joining them will be Jonathan Kuttab, founder of Al-Haq.

We are pleased that Dayla Al Masri will be moderating the webinar. Dalya is a Palestinian writer, organizer, and researcher.

In May, tens of thousands of Palestinians mobilized throughout Palestine and the diaspora under a unified call for freedom, dignity, and justice. The uprising sparked a shift in global consciousness.
This panel of lawyers will consider what has changed, look at specific examples and campaigns, consider what we can learn, and share their thoughts about Palestinian human rights advocacy going forward.

With the recent the designation of six Palestinian human rights organizations as terrorist entities, and others organizations defending justice for Palestine earlier in 2021, the panel will consider what is required of the international community, in particular third countries and how we as civil society can engage.

Just Peace Advocates recently updated its Palestinian Human Rights Issues In Canada: Legal and Tactical Guide. The Guide will serve as a resource. This guide provides basic information on legal issues that Palestinian rights activists may face, and tips on how to navigate them. It provides some generally applicable information and some campus-specific information for student activists. Download your own copy at: https://www.justpeaceadvocates.ca/legal-and-tactical-guide/
