Here is the video of just one of the many speakers at last Saturday’s rally in London, Richard Dawkins:(My apologies – embedding decided not to work in this post, though I have no idea why, it’s not like I haven’t done it in several other posts just today…)
Following is an email I received from Maryam Namazie of One Law For All, reporting on the event and supplying some excellent links. Congratulations on a successful event – and thank you to each and every person who participated and/or helped spread the word: this is one fight we must not back down from!!!
Also, there is an excellent, 1/2-hour long speech by Dan Hannan on America and Europe – check it out on JR’s site. I love Mr. Hannan’s well constructed phraseoplogy and impeccable delivery, but keep coming back because of the excellence of his ideas.
I received an email which I would like to reproduce in its (almost) entirety, because it not only speaks for itself, it also includes the most-important links….and, it does raise a ray of hope!
Here it is, in its (almost) entirety (I only redacted a phone number):
“Barrett credits Gary Mchale and CANACE for keeping the issue alive in the media and in the limelight, suggesting a lot of McHale’s ideas have been ‘pretty good’.” They include having more oversight from the Ontario Ombudsman with respect to the OPP and more protection for whistleblowers in the Police service.
He did all the investigative journalism, the documentation and he exerted the political pressure necessary for the Minister to be able to do his job!
Well done, BCF!!!
Of course, in a just world, these would be criminal charges – not just a simple de-funding. But, as ‘they’ say, Harper is an incrementalist – and this is a first tiny little baby step in the right direction.
