A KSLA-TV news report from Louisiana has confirmed the story that Clergy Response Teams are being trained by the federal government to “quell dissent” and pacify citizens to obey the government in the event of a declaration of martial law.

To The Editor: To the lady who added “white” to “red”, you missed the point. “White” is not at issue. “Red” to me means the precious blood of our Canadian soldiers is being spilled needlessly and shamelessly by our own government and by those of us who either support the mission or, by ignoring the facts, blindly support our troops. One question: Would we be there at all if the Americans had not, illegally, invaded Afghanistan and goaded us to follow them? The answer is an unequivocal “No.” Whom do our troops really support over there? The government of Karzai? It exists, but on paper. Those who are really in charge now are the former warlords who were ousted by the Taliban and are now members of parliament and governors of the provinces. Most of them are renowned criminals and are much worse than the Taliban. Who else do our troops support? They free up American troops who are really there to chase Al-Quaeda and build a pipeline to have access to the oil reserves of the Caspian sea. Tell me now, is all that worth a Canadian soldier’s life? Is it even worth standing up tall and proud in red (even with white) on a Friday morning or afternoon? Want to support our troops? Wear whatever it takes to bring them home! How about black? (For references, read the book “Bleeding Afghanistan” by Sonali Kolhatcar; go to Google and find out about Malalai Joya).

Canada was cast Thursday as a bad actor that aggressively campaigned alongside countries with tarnished human-rights records in its failed bid to derail the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
Haiti and the “Responsibility to Protect”
When Prime Minister Stephen Harper departs for Australia on Tuesday for a summit of pan-Pacific leaders, he’ll be carrying with him a secret agenda that is quite literally radioactive.
Central to the plan is a proposal that all used nuclear fuel be repatriated to the original uranium exporting country for disposal.
That should be big news in Canada, the world’s largest uranium producer.
But to date, the Canadian government’s response is a closely guarded secret. In fact, there’s been virtually no public debate at all.
Women in Black will be holding their vigil for peace Friday September 7th in front of Fredericton City Hall from noon until 1pm. All are welcome.

5. SENLIS COUNCIL NEWS RELEASE ON HUMANITARIAN CRISIS IN AFGHANISTAN
On August 15, the two Canadian members of the Fondasyon Mapou/Haiti Priorities Project-organized human rights delegation to Haiti took our concerns about the disappearance and apparent kidnapping of Lovinsky Pierre-Antoine to the Canadian embassy in Port au Prince.
This report is the result of research conducted by The Senlis Council in response to the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). As a reaction to our reports demonstrating that the work of CIDA was not visible in Kandahar, we were invited to verify their work for ourselves. The suffering of the Afghan people in Kandahar not only neglects our humanitarian obligations to our allies in Kandahar, it creates a climate that fuels the insurgency and undermines the already dangerous work of Canada’s military in this hostile war zone.
