Gaza 20/20 is an urgent call from the Palestinian human rights organization Al-Haq to the international community. The campaign was kicked off in Canada, in partnership with Just Peace Advocates/Mouvement pour une Just Paix, with over 20 public events, coast to coast, seeing over 2,000 people attending.

In November 2019, over 100 organizations signed la letter to the Canadian government calling for Canadian sanctions on Israel until at least the blockade was lifted for the Palestinian people living in Gaza.

In November 2019, over 75 organizations signed a second letter.

This letter called as a minimum on the Canadian government to:

-publicly condemn Israeli security operations in Gaza and demand an end to all breaches of international humanitarian law and international human rights law;

-insist through the implementation of sanctions that Israel end its blockade of Gaza;
implement an arms embargo, and press for a comprehensive arms embargo at the level of the UN Security Council;

-vote at the UNGA in alignment with the majority of the international community taking a stance in line with international law and human rights for Palestinians, recognizing this is important also in seeking a seat on the UNSC; and

-impose a ban on all goods originating from illegal Israeli settlements in occupied Palestinian territory entering Canada as well as a ban on Canadian companies operating in illegal settlements or trading in settlement goods.
