Towards a global front against colonialism and Zionism
The Masar Badil announced the Liberation Conference: Confronting Colonialism, A Vision for Liberation, to take place in Ottawa, on unceded Algonquin Anishinaabe land on April 28, 29, and 30, 2023. The conference is now open for endorsement and registration for activists and organizers.
Through this conference, the Masar Badil seeks to form and consolidate a broad alliance at the international level to build on what it achieved in Madrid, Sao Paulo and Beirut in 2021 and Brussels in 2022, and to work together for a common front to challenge U.S. imperialism, together with the Indigenous movement and the Black Liberation movement. This has been recognized as a key task of the movement since its inception in October 2021.
The conference particularly aims to develop strategies of struggle in North America to resist imperialism and confront it more effectively, and to widen the participation of the Palestinian people in exile in order to build the Palestinian liberation movement in occupied Palestine and in the diaspora.
Palestinian journalist Rumzi Farooqi said, “The Masar Badil movement is working to strengthen the role of Palestinians, Arabs and their allies across the continent, working in cooperation with the liberation movements from Asia, Africa and the Caribbean. This conference is an important occasion to build greater collaboration between these revolutionary forces to confront the U.S. siege, Canadian complicity, the Zionist project and its allies.”
Mohammed Khatib, a member of the executive committee of the Masar Badil, said that Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network, Within Our Lifetime, the International League of Peoples’ Struggle, Al-Awda, the Palestine Right to Return Coalition, and other labour, student and women’s organizations will participate in the conference and organize workshops in support of the prisoners’ movement and the Palestinian people’s resistance for return and liberation.
As part of the conference, the movement will organize a mass demonstration on Sunday, April 30, and will issue a final document the following day, coinciding with International Workers’ Day, on May 1, 2023.
