Rajinder Sahota: A Stand for Free Speech

Published in the Victoria Times Colonist 24 March 2009 In a turn of events that any reader of George Orwell would appreciate, Immigration Minister Jason Kenney confirmed that British MP George Galloway was banned from entering Canada, allegedly under Immigration and Refugee Protection Act provisions banning supporters of terror.

George Galloway: Canada Can’t Muzzle Me

The Canadian immigration minister Jason Kenney gazetted in the Sun yesterday morning that I was to be excluded from his country because of my views on Afghanistan. That’s the way the rightwing, last-ditch dead-enders of Bushism in Ottawa conduct their business. Kenney is quite a card. A quick trawl establishes he’s a gay-baiter, gung-ho armchair Read more…

Fabio Sallustro: Il sangue della destra italiana

Roberto Maroni ci diceva che bisogna "essere cattivi" con i clandestini… Cominciamo ad assaggiare a fondo il senso delle sue parole:     La notizia passa sotto silenzio. Il giornale del PD, la repubblica, decide di parlarne ma senza cavalcare l’onda. http://www.repubblica.it/2009/03/sezioni/politica/dl-sicurezza-3/storia-13mar/storia-13mar.html La notizia è molto semplice: una prostituta, per timore di venire denunciata in Read more…

d: Annexation in My Back Yard

It’s a convenient misconception about Beduins, that they are nomads. Unlike Gypsies, Beduins don’t move around aimlessly, but move back and forth from several grazing territories for their livestock. Modern society has no place for such practices. “Them” and ”Us” My parents live in a small suburb of Be’er Sheva, in the south of Israel, Read more…
