Despite Zionist and Orange Order Shenannigans Green Party Meeting On BDS and Palestine was a success

14712834_10206020313661740_5406181156839256746_oYesterday at the University of Waterloo the Green Party invited Dimitri Lascaris, Rehab Nazzal and Wendy Goldsmith to discuss the Green Party resolution in support of the use of the BDS tactic to stop illegal Israeli settlements as well as the present condition of the occupation and the experience that Wendy Goldsmith had as a passenger on the Womans Gaza Flotilla.

The presentation covered a variety of issues such as the illegal blockade on Gaza, the impact that illegal settlements have on Palestinians and the impact of the occupation on the people of Palestine. Despite the objective and scientific nature of the presentations the meeting was sort of hijacked by a well known member of the orange order who is well known for his disruptive and argumentative nature and a young Zionist. In the past this person has approached me and my friends after the murder of Beau Baker by police justifying the killing, has rationalized interment in Ireland as well as the genocide of indigenous people and is well known for saying the stupidest and most offensive shit.

Despite the fact that it was quite clear neither of them knew what they were talking about and both were clearly suffering a severe case of offensive verbal diarrhea the speakers kept their cool and answered all their questions calm and rationally even though it was quite clear that the purpose of their questions was to disrupt and not to engage in any constructive dialogue.

In the face of this and the last minute changes to the venue as well as other fuckerys the msg of Dimitri and the other speakers to support the BDS resolution and to come to Calgary early December was quite clear. The Kitchener Green Party Riding Association is sending a delegation to this convention to stand with the Palestinian people and to defend their inner party democracy. I look forward to hearing about this convention when the Kitchener Greens return.
