Photographer's Note

Canada is, traditionally, a neutral and peaceful country which intervenes in favour of peace in the world. However, the arrival of qa Conservative Prime Minister whose program and ideologies are aligned on those of George W Bush came to modify the foreign policy of our country. That was percpetible at the time of the recent conflict between Israel and Lebanon. The position of our government changed, which is not the case of that of the population.

In Montreal, a demonstration in favour of peace took place during the conflict. More than 15.000 people gathered with the Parc Lafontaine. The demonstrators required that the federal government Stephen Harper join again with the neutrality of Canada on the international scene.

I've been surprise to see this group of Jews showing its solidarity with the Libanese people while raising their flag. Much more than one political action, I saw the demonstration of a beautiful solidarity which transcend the borders and the religious ideologies.

I hesitated before publishing this photograph, but I wanted to share this beautiful gesture.
