My daughter went to this school, I'm confident she would've knocked down anyone who attempted to block a doorway to simulate 'oppression in Palestine'. The teachers did the right thing, and good for the Jewish Group for stepping up!ReplyDelete

Here's the main body of the article.
"Staff at a Calgary high school, along with members of the local and national Jewish community, were forced to act quickly last week to halt a planned anti-Israel demonstration by students.
Metro has learned members of the amnesty club at Western Canada High School had planned to hold a "mock roadblock" event to portray their perceived Israeli oppression of the Palestinian people.
It would have been the first demonstration of its kind at a high school in Western Canada, said Anita Bromberg, national director, legal affairs for Jewish advocacy and support group B'nai Brith Canada. Her organization became involved after hearing concerns from Jewish parents whose children attend the school.
"Those students would have felt very isolated and targeted for that matter."
