We Lost “Splitting the Sky”, a Mohawk Warrior and Activist

Canada Palestine Association is deeply saddened by the recent passing of Mohawk warrior and indigenous activist Splitting the Sky (John Boncore)

Canada Palestine Association is deeply saddened by the recent passing of Mohawk warrior and indigenous activist Splitting the Sky (John Boncore). The Palestinian people are indebted to Splitting the Sky for his enduring resistance and uncompromising anti-colonial positions, as well as his long time support of the Palestinian struggle. He was an early member of the American Indian Movement and also attempted a citizen’s arrest of U.S. President George W. Bush in 2009 in Calgary for war crimes and crimes against humanity .
We were honored to have him deliver a solidarity message on the occasion of the Int’l Day of Solidarity with the Palestinians in 2003 in Vancouver, an event that also featured the parents of Rachel Corrie.
Our condolences to his family, friends and nation; rest assured his legacy will carry on!

In Solidarity

Canada Palestine Association and Voice of Palestine Statement On the Passing of Hugo Chávez

To Merli Vanegas:
Consul General of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in Vancouver

Dear Merli Vanegas,

We were deeply saddened by the news of the passing of the great revolutionary leader Hugo Chávez.
In the name of Canada Palestine Association and Voice of Palestine, Canada, we send our sincere condolences to you, to the Bolivarian revolutionaries and to the Venezuelan people.
We are certain that the achievements and successes of the revolution will be maintained and advanced. We are also certain that the US designs to economically and militarily control the world and its resources will be stopped and defeated.
Long live international solidarity between the Venezuelan people and the Palestinian and Arab peoples.

The Struggle Continues.
