Bregman is no stranger to anti-Semitism – the Rabbi had his own synagogue firebombed and destroyed by Molotov cocktails back in 1985. He stresses the importance of strength in solidarity in everyone whether they are Jewish, Muslim, First Nations and beyond. One of the guest speakers at the event will be former Musqueam Chief, Gail Sparrow.
“I said Gail I want you to come and I don’t want to have any crazy statements as far as unceded territory. I said most people don’t even know how to spell the word, they don’t know what it means. I said why don’t you tell them we’re on the stolen land, we are occupying it, you know what it’s like to be slaughtered in North America.”
Other speakers will include Muslim and Christian representatives and also Rabbi Jonathan Infeld, who is originally from Pittsburgh.
The event takes place at 4-pm, October 30.
