This summer brought Omar the warmth and sunshine that he thought he would receive almost eleven years ago, when he landed in so-called Canada as a Palestinian refugee. Instead, he went through many years of stress and uncertainty, not unlike what other migrants face in Canada. Omar had left behind his wife and seven children back in Jenin, Palestine and had hoped for them to join him soon in Canada.

Status for Omar- A Call for Donations

August 7th, 2018 | Posted in Canada, Palestine, Solidarity

For nearly a decade, Omar Ben Ali- a stateless Palestinian refugee- has been living in Montreal. Following the refusal of his refugee claim in 2008, Omar has been left in limbo- unable to obtain status, but unable to return to Palestine. In July 2017, Omar launched the #StatusforOmar campaign, demanding that he be granted permanent residency on humanitarian and compassionate grounds be accepted and that he be allowed to reunite with his wife and seven children, from whom he has been separated for the past ten years.

Last month, Omar received news that his wife and children must complete medical examinations and submit additional documentation as part of the processing of his humanitarian and compassionate grounds application. Costs for the medical examinations, for passport renewals and for police certificates for family members above the age of 18 are expected to surpass $3,000. As the sole source of financial support for his family, Omar is unable to cover these expenses alone.

Tadamon is calling for donations to cover the costs required for the documents and exams. Below are some ways to donate:

* By Online Donation
You can make an online donation via the Status for Omar crowdfunding page:

* By Cheque
Please write your cheque out to “QPIRG-McGill”, specifying “Tadamon- Status for Omar Fundraiser” in the subject line. You can send the cheque by mail, or drop it off in person, at the following address:

3647 University Street, 3rd floor
Montreal, QC, H3A 2B3

QPIRG-McGill office hours are from noon to 6pm, from Monday to Thursday. Please note that the office is unfortunately not wheelchair-accessible.

* By Cash
To arrange a cash contribution, please contact

Eight years into the Syrian uprising, the grassroots movement, the local councils and the ongoing revolutionary struggle are misunderstood or denied outright by many (even on the left). The military strikes carried out in April by the US, the UK and France against Syrian state targets were cynical and opportunistic actions. They must rightly be condemned. Not, as some do, on strict anti-imperialist grounds, opposing only western intervention in Syria, or, from another standpoint, in blind, apologetic support of the dictatorial Syrian regime, and its allies, Russia and Iran. Such perspectives go hand in hand with a denial of the Syrian popular revolt where, in current debates, support for the brutal Asad regime is justified due to the presence of Al-Qaeda, ISIS and other reactionary groups. Rather, a position on Syria, and on political actions in the Syrian conflict, must start with a recognition of the people’s struggle and the violent repression to which it has been subject at the hands of regime forces (responsible for the overwhelming majority of the hundreds of thousands of civilian deaths). It must also listen to the voices from the Syrian uprising calling for dignity and freedom and respect and support the revolutionary agency and autonomy of the people of Syria.
