A List of Some People in Canada Fired for Pro-Palestine Views --In recent weeks, many people in Canada have been investigated, suspended and/or fired by their employer for posting about Palestine. | 10 Nov 2023 | In recent weeks, many people within Canada have been investigated, suspended and/or fired by their employer for expressing pro-Palestine views on social media and elsewhere. The Maple intends to document and share as many examples of such cases -- where the person was disciplined for posts or comments made on or after October 7 -- as possible. To start, I've compiled particularly well known incidents that have already been made public. Based on preliminary tips we've received from human rights organizations and lawyers, we know the cases below are just a fraction of the overall incidents. For example, here's how an open letter from legal organizations described the state of retaliation in that industry: "Lawyers are openly advocating on social media to blacklist law students and lawyers who have voiced support for Palestine; Lawyers are contacting the employers of lawyers and encouraging they be fired for their pro-Palestinian advocacy. Law firms (many of which issued unprecedented, political statements in support of Israel) are rescinding interview offers to students who sign open letters condemning Israel. Law schools are threatening those students with expulsion."
