Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East contributes to peace by helping people harmed by conditions in the Middle East. #Canada150
Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (CJPME) is a non-profit organization based in Montreal whose mission is “to enable Canadians of all backgrounds to promote justice, development and peace in the Middle East, and here at home in Canada.”
CJPME believes that all parties to a conflict should be held to the same standard, that all positions should respect international law, and that violence is not a solution.
It opposed the Canadian government allowing the export of war-related equipment to Saudi Arabia. It promotes the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement which aims to end international support for Israel’s oppression of Palestinians and pressure Israel to comply with international law.
