Outside the Israeli consulate on Toronto's Bloor street, Jewish-Canadian peace group Women in Solidarity with Palestine is staging its weekly vigil. Eight people have gathered. One woman holds up a large black hand inscribed with "End the Occupation!" Another carries a map of Israel and Palestine showing the growth of Israel's territory since 1948. Passers-by take a leaflet, or stop and engage in conversation, sometimes heated. It's a sunny day, but the vigil continues through the snowy winter months as well.
