Betty Peltier-Solano: We feel that prison authorities at the prompting of the FBI orchestrated this attack and thus, we are greatly concerned about his safety. It may be that the attackers, whom Leonard did not even know, were offered reduced sentences for carrying out this heinous assault. Since Leonard is up for parole soon, this could be a conspiracy to discredit a model prisoner.

UPDATE: LOCKHEED MARTIN MANAGEMENT DECIDED TO CANCEL THE RECRUITMENT SESSION UPON RECEIVING WORD THAT A NUMBER OF STUDENTS WERE PLANNING TO PROTEST IT.
Strax cordially invites you to Lockheed Martin’s recruitment event on Tuesday, January 20th at 5:00pm. We strongly urge you to bring with you the knowledge of what Lockheed Martin won’t be telling you at its information session:
- Lockheed Martin exists to profit from the destruction of human life and critical infrastructure;
- weapons systems developed by Lockheed Martin are used to produce cluster bombs and nuclear weaponry;
- and Lockheed Martin is responsible for the production of the F-16 fighter aircrafts, as well as other equipment and munitions, currently being used to bombard the Gaza Strip.
Please respond to Lockheed Martin’s presence in the way you feel is appropriate, be it with placards, information flyers, noisemakers, a piece of your mind, or by bringing along your family to show Lockheed Martin representatives the kind of people they are complicit in murdering.
Let’s show that:

There was a music school in Gaza. It was just six months old. The 31 children aged 7 to 11 could choose one of five instruments, including the guitar, oud (lute), and piano. Most of the 19 girls gravitated to the guitar and piano, while many of the 12 boys showed a preference for the oud.
One Israeli official promised a holocaust in Gaza; it is impossible to keep pace with the death toll.

Canada lives in the unfortunate position of being under the thrall of U.S. media for most its information and cultural relevance. At the same time, its own media, apart from the national broadcast company CBC, is highly centralized under the influence of two media empires (Canwest Global and CTV GlobeMedia) who support the same kind of biased coverage that is provided by the U.S. In sum, Canadians who wish to receive a balanced view of events in the Middle East, Gaza in particular, have to rely on alternate or external media.
