We came together to form the Not In Our Name (NION) network in Toronto, Ontario, during the summer of 2006, in solidarity with the people of Lebanon and Palestine against Israel’s wars and in opposition to the complicity of the Canadian government with Israel’s criminal actions.
Who are we? Not In Our Name (NION): Jewish Voices Opposing Zionism. We are also affiliate members of Independent Jewish Voices (Canada).
The ugly face of Zionism has reared itself with near slience from the west.

From a left-wing community once at the forefront of struggles against racism, unconditional support for Israel has turned a significant proportion of Toronto Jews into promoters of hatred against “Arabs” and into allies of right wing, bigoted, homophobic Christian Bible literalists.
And on the cartoon front. Bahar's cartoons say it all.
Just when we think it can't get anymore disgusting. By way of mention, Canada's own human rights advocate, Irwin Cotler, sits on the paper's board of directors. Justin, any desire to distance yourself? Enough said.
We call on the Museum of Civilization to rescind its agreement to provide space to the Jewish National Fund (JNF) for its Negev Gala. . . .Sign the online petition
There are two locations in downtown Toronto from 5:00 to 6:00 every Friday where you can join NION and other voices against Israel's occupation and apartheid:
the long time Vigil in front of the Israeli Consulate at 180 Bloor St West,
and the ongoing information picket boycotting Chapters Indigo at the Bay Bloor Indigo, on Bay St just south of Bloor.
You can find out live what is going on in Toronto, and get leaflets and posters from those at the Vigil and Information picket. Visit us when you can.
Wandering Forum - NION is organizing a "A Wondering Forum" to provide speakers to visit other organizations to create discussion around Israel's wars and apartheid. If you would like to invite a NION speaker or want more information please write to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
