“Ending the genocide in Gaza is a feminist issue”: Human rights organization demands action on IWD

Justice For All Canada (JFAC), a human rights advocacy organization, highlighted the urgent situation faced by Palestinian women and girls in Gaza and the West Bank for International Women’s Day (IWD) at a press conference in Ottawa on Friday.

“Over 8,620 women have been ruthlessly killed. Over 14,350 children have been murdered in Gaza alone, their young lives cut violently short,” JFAC advocacy officer Ganiyat Sadiq said in the opening remarks.

Films4Falasteen co-founder and creative director Monalisa Ghadban added that new mothers are sent to Rafah refugee camps “only to watch their newborn children die from starvation.”

“Ending the genocide in Gaza is a feminist issue. Canada’s decision to cut UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugee) funding is the prioritization of politics over innocent people, and it shows Canada’s lack of serious commitment to our own feminist, international assistance policy,” Carleton University PhD student Lama Alsafi said.

“Canada must exert pressure on Israel to thoroughly investigate incidents of rape and sexual assault against Palestinian female detainees,” project manager Nihad Jasser concluded.
