Abraham Harvey "Eibie" Weizfeld is a Montreal-based peace activist and author. In 1989 his anthology of the Jewish opposition movement was published as "The End of Zionism: and the liberation of the Jewish People".
Weizfeld's thesis is published and online as "Nation, Society and the State: the reconciliation of Palestinian and Jewish Nationhood", 2009.
He is a co-founder of the New Bundist Movement, and of the Alliance of Concerned Jewish Canadians.
In 1985 he attained notoriety when he and a colleague broke a unicorn statue's symbolic stone chain on the Peace Tower (the Canadian Coat of Arms) on Parliament Hill as part of a protest by a group called Parliament Hill Peace Camp, which was opposed to the testing of cruise missiles in Canada. The attack caused $15,000 in damage and the pair were sentenced to 30 days' imprisonment. The "peace camp", which consisted initially of four people, a tent, table, tarpaulin and mock missile, had originally been intended to only remain on Parliament Hill for three days, but ultimately remained for more than two years.
Weizfeld is a Jewish Socialist academic and Modern-Orthodox Jewish agnostic. As a result, he is a Jewish anti-Zionist.
