York Prof: Canada’s mission in Afghanistan a tragic mistake

“The Harper government’s line has been that if you question the war, you’re unpatriotic,” Laxer says. “It’s the lowest form of wartime propaganda.”

Grandmothers Block Recruiters – Six are Arrested

On Friday, February 2, 2007, members of the Surge Protection Brigade in Portland, Oregon successfully blocked entrance to the Army/Marine Recruiting office on NE Broadway for two and a half hours. Emphasizing that many of them are grandmothers, they arrived at 7:45 AM with their rocking chairs. They rocked and stood in front of the three doors of the office, denying entrance to two recruiters and several visitors. At one point, frustrated recruiters physically pushed two of the protesters aside to squeeze through the back door. When two recruiters left to get breakfast they were denied re-entry and the accompanying police officer told them they would have to wait outside.

Feb. 7 International Day in Solidarity with the Haitian People
Bulletin #2 — 53 Cities on 5 Continents say:
STOP UN massacres of the poor in Haiti!
END the foreign occupation of Haiti!
53 cities — in South Africa, the Philippines, South America, the Caribbean, Europe and North America — are joining hands in the February 7th mobilization, in answer to the call from the popular movement in Haiti.
*** In Durban, South Africa, the Abahlali shack dwellers movement and its 34 settlements are holding an event at the Kennedy Road settlement Feb. 7 “in support of the shack dwellers of Haiti.” They’re showing videos of the heavy-caliber killings of Haitian children, men and women in Cite Soleil by an invasion force wearing the Blue Helmets of the U.N.
*** In Georgetown, Guyana, the women’s organization Red Thread is picketing a U.N. office Feb. 7 to protest UN massacres in Haitian shantytowns.
*** In New York City, the Haitian community is demonstrating Feb. 7 in front of United Nations headquarters to “demand an end to the occupation, exile and political imprisonment” being imposed upon Haiti. From coast to coast, many US and Canadian cities are organizing Haiti solidarity activities: Miami, Boston, Detroit, Atlanta, Montreal, Vancouver, Calgary, Halifax, Windsor, Washington, DC, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Sacramento, San Jose, San Diego, Philadelphia, Tucson.
*** In Cochabamba, Bolivia, on Feb. 7 they are showing the explosive new 90-minute Kevin Pina film, Haiti: “We Must Kill the Bandits”.
*** In Santiago, Chile, Feb.7th protest activities include the painting of a street mural about the Haitian people’s struggle and their suffering at the hands of the UN occupation force, which includes soldiers from Chile.
*** In Dublin, Ireland, as well as in San Francisco and Los Angeles, California, protesters are targeting the embassy or consulates of Brazil, which supplies the top commander and many soldiers for the UN military force in Haiti.
*** In Rio de Janeiro, 6,000 Brazilian youth and students marched through the city center to demand the immediate withdrawal of all of Brazil’s troops from Haiti.
*** In Manila, Gabriela, the largest women’s federation in the Philippines, is joining the Haitian popular movement on Feb. 7 in condemning the US/UN occupation of Haiti, just as they oppose the presence of US troops on Philippine soil.
*** In Mexico, the National Democratic Convention and the Mexican Federation of Electrical Workers (SME) are throwing their weight behind the demands of the Feb. 7 mobilization for Haiti.
*** In Nova Scotia and Atlantic Canada, Haiti solidarity activists are doing a high school and university tour, educating students about the Haitian Revolution, the grassroots liberation movement, and how Canada gave key support to the 2004 coup and today’s brutal occupation.

The term Green Scare refers to the U.S. government’s expanding prosecution efforts against animal liberation and ecological activists, drawing parallels to the “Red Scares” of the 1910′s and 1950s. http://greenscare.org/

Italy tells Canada, other allies, to butt out of its Afghan policy decisions

“Foreign Minister Massimo D’Alema sent a protest letter to six allied countries Tuesday, accusing them of interfering in Italian affairs with their public appeal for Rome to keep its troops in Afghanistan.”

” Prodi said Italian troops will stay in Afghanistan, and pledged to boost civilian aid and diplomatic action there, a key demand by far leftists who oppose the military mission.”

UPDATE ON HUNGER STRIKES AT GUANTANAMO NORTH

SITUATION CRITICAL WHILE “PUBLIC SAFETY” MINISTER LOST IN THE TWILIGHT ZONE

UPDATE ON THE SITUATION AND NEXT STEPS

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 2007

The Secret Trial Security Certificate detainees – held without charge or fair trial for up to six and a half years under threat of deportation to torture – are in their third month of a hunger strike at Canada’s
Guantanamo North. Today is day 75 of the hungerstrike for Mahjoub, and day 64 for Hassan Almrei and Mahmoud Jaballah. The three are demanding minor improvements in prison conditions, including medical care and the appointment of the Correctional Investigator, an independent ombudsperson, to investigate complaints.

Despite a mounting public outcry (see letters referred to above), the government continues to expose the men to the risk of death by denying them daily medical monitoring during the hungerstrike. Rather than intervening urgently to find a solution, Day and Harper prefer to propagate misinformation and spin campaigns (see response to six false claims by Harper and Day at http://www.homesnotbombs.ca/daylies.htm).

VICTORY AT HOUSE COMMITTEE

Thanks in part to the pressure exerted by people across Canada, a resolution was passed Tuesday, February 6 by the Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration calling on the federal government to respond to the crisis by appointing the Office of the Correctional Investigator, a federal prison ombudsperson, to assume control over Guantanamo North. All Tories on the committee shamefully voted against the motion.

The same motion will go before the Standing Committee on Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness on Thursday. It is crucial that calls go to those committee members calling on them to support the resolution (See list at bottom of this email: focus, in priority, on Liberals and Bloc before the Tories — the NDP member is on side).

==> ACT NOW – THE SITUATION IS CRITICAL

In the next days we are calling for :

1. PUBLIC ACTIONS

There will be numerous actions February 7 protesting the callous and cruel manner in which Stockwell Day is refusing to negotiate a solution. While on the one hand he says (falsely) he cannot intervene because the matter is before the courts, on the other he has invaded the men’s privacy by looking into a fridge and trying to make it sound like the trampling of their rights is okay because he saw “large chocolate sauce” in that fridge.

Ongoing actions, however, are needed. Actions could take the form of delegations to present letters to officials, pickets, or theatrical media actions (orange jumpsuits and chocolate sauce: chocolate sauce in Guantanamo! or Let Them Eat Chocolate Sauce!) at relevant government offices.

Actions should highlight the following demands:

a)  Begin providing regular medical monitoring of these three men IN THE LIVING UNIT, immediately and without conditions.

b)  Immediately appoint the federal Correctional Investigator to negotiate a solution to the hungerstrike.

c)  After the hungerstrike, act without delay to address the underlying reasons for the hunger strikes: indefinite detention, denial of a fair trial, and deportation to torture.

2. CALLS AND FAXES to “Public Safety” Minister Stockwell Day, demanding: 

a)  Begin providing regular medical monitoring of these three men IN THE LIVING UNIT immediately and without conditions.

b)  Immediately appoint the federal Correctional Investigator to negotiate a solution to the hungerstrike.

c)  After the hungerstrike, act without delay to address the underlying reasons for the hunger strikes: indefinite detention, denial of a fair trial and deportation to torture.
