Ward Churchill, George Galloway: Speaking at Concordia University

Ward Churchill at Concordia

I am very happy to announce that Ward Churchill will be speaking at Concordia University, on Wednesday, 15 April 15, at 7:00pm, at the Sir George Williams campus in downtown Montreal, in the Hall Building, room H-110. The admission cost is a voluntary donation. For more information, contact: scott.montreal@sympactico.ca or the Concordia chapter of the Quebec Public Interest Research Group, QPIRG Concordia: 514-848-7585, info@qpirgconcordia.org.

Needless to say, I will be attending and reporting on the event shortly thereafter.

George Galloway at Concordia

Let us hope that this time, with Ward Churchill, that our rather extremist, hard bitten, neo-con government does not do the same as it did to British parliamentarian, George Galloway, who has been banned from entering Canada and speaking to anti-war groups because he is an alleged “security threat.” The message seems to be that being against war is to be against security, as if we needed another lesson in that “logic.” In the meantime, a war criminal like George W. Bush was permitted to enter the country and speak at a high-priced private function in Calgary.

Nonetheless, George Galloway will still be speaking to an audience at Concordia, via video link:


Date: Wednesday April 1st

Time: Doors Open 6:15 P.M. (Starting at: 7:00 P.M.)
Location: Concordia University, Hall Building, Room H-110

1455 de Maisonneuve West, (Métro Guy-Concordia)

Montreal: George Galloway will be speaking in Montreal on “Resisting war from Gaza to Kandahar” by live video feed. The audience will be able to interact with MP Galloway and ask him questions.

Ticket Prices:
$20.00 Adults
$10.00 Students and Seniors

Update: please ignore any rumours that even the video feed has been canceled because Concordia allegedly thinks that too is a threat — that would have to entail banning the Internet itself. The event is still on.

Canada: Banning the Wrong “Threats”

Though long delayed, I eventually plan to post an item on the extremist ideological campaign undertaken by Canada’s minority government in entering into a security alliance with Israel, adopting extreme pro-Zionist positions that border on racism, demonizing the Canadian Arab Federation, and eagerly applauding Israel’s war crimes.

The Jewish Defence League, which successfully militated against Galloway’s entry, and apparently has the ear of the Canadian government…is a rather interesting actor itself: it was named by the FBI in its 2000/2001 report as a “violent extremist Jewish  organization,” and the FBI claimed to have prevented one of its terrorist attacks within the U.S. Moreover, the JDL is a creature of a racist and extremist, the late Rabbi Meir Kahane, whose party was declared “racist” by the Israeli Knesset itself, banning Kahane’s party in 1986. In other words, the Canadian government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper, in the name of fighting terrorism and even racism, is itself influenced by a racist and terrorist organization, and allows Calgary to play host to the world’s leading international war criminal.

The ban on George Galloway follows the government’s earlier ban on Professor Bill Ayers, who was also prohibited from entering Canada. Interestingly, Galloway has just finished a speaking tour across the U.S., which allowed him to enter freely without treating him as a “security threat.”
