Canadian writers take a stand against Israel's evictions of Palestinians and Bedouin

They just keep climbing on. More than 90 Canadian writers, including a lot of the big names, have come on board as signatories to an online letter to Israeli and Canadian authorities.

The writers are calling for two things: a halt in the eviction of 1,000 Palestinians from various villages in the southern Hebron Hills in the occupied West Bank which has been designed as a military firing range and, secondly, an end to a planned forcible relocation of an estimated 20,000 to 70,000 Israeli citizens of Bedouin background this coming August from their 35 communities in the Negev within the state of Israel itself.
