Add Samidoun to the list of terrorist entities

Thumbnail

Samidoun (Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network) is a registered Canadian not-for-profit with clear a direct affiliation and ties to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) – an organization that has been placed on the list of terrorist entities under Canada’s Criminal Code since 2003.  

There is ample open-source information that ties Samidoun to the PFLP. In 2021, Israel designated Samidoun a terror group based on the organization’s direct affiliation with and ties to the PFLP. Most disturbing to Canada’s Jewish community, Samidoun has a significant and active presence in Canada where it holds events, raises funds, runs advocacy campaigns, and organizes activities on university campuses. Regularly, Samidoun officials call for violence at these events.   

Recommendation
That the Government of Canada review Samidoun’s activities in Canada to determine if the organization warrants placement on the Criminal Code list as a terrorist entity. 

Join us in calling on the government to review the operations of Samidoun, a terror-affiliated entity, within Canada.

    It is totally unacceptable that the leaders of this terrorist organization live in Vancouver British Columbia. The whole organization should be taken down. There is no room for terrorism in Canada.

    I call on the government of Canada to stand on principles, rather than on moral equivalency — the support of Hamas and the support of Israel are not morally equivalent.
