Having exhausted the limited remedies in Israel, the villagers of Bil’in have brought their peaceful struggle for justice to Canada. With the assistance of Mark Arnold, a Toronto-based lawyer, its Israeli counsel, and Al-Haq, a Palestinian human rights organization, the village of Bil’in has filed a lawsuit in Quebec against Green Mount International Inc. and Green Park International Inc. — companies accused of violating international, Canadian and Quebec law by building settlements on Israeli occupied Palestinian land.
