CanPalNet-Winnipeg is the local chapter of the International Solidarity Movement: a non-violent international organization working for peace in Palestine and an end to Israel’s longstanding and illicit occupation. (You might recall the ISM American member Rachel Corrie, who was crushed to death by an Israeli bulldozer while standing in front of a house set for demolition.)

The monies raised by CanPalNet-Winnipeg are used for educational seminars, panel discussions and other events, but the overwhelming majority of funds are used to dispatch volunteers to Palestine as witnesses to the occupation, and as workers in defense of ordinary Palestinians. They also hold an annual Canada-Palestine film festival, which so far has showcased over 20 films (feature length and documentary) on the conflict — films which rarely see the light of day in North America.

So, mark your calendar for February 3.
