You got my thumbs up, I hope you get in on the press conferences too. It's a struggle to stay informed since I'm Canadian and have to search the internet to know what's really going on in my own country. I appreciate you as a citizen-reporter more than you know, thank you". Carol Young
Thank you for uploading this video and the one of Dr. Stephen Xenakis' presentation. A lot of new details I wasn't aware of and explanations..
I think I already knew quite a bit more than the average person who relies only on the inadequate coverage provided by our mainstream media (which has been really poor) and still found both presentations/videos extremely informative. It's quite sad that the average person who relies only on the mainstream media really has no clue just how outrageous, criminal and morally disgusting the Canadian government, the American military and government's (2 administrations) treatment of Omar Khadr has been for more than a decade and the unbelievable injustice he's suffered. The fact that he has been so demonized and dehumanized and continues to be allows all the cowards responsible to avoid being held accountable. I wish there was more average people of conscience like me could do that would actually make a difference for Omar. Hopefully he will be able to get his life and freedom back soon and is given a chance to heal from what must have been and continues to be such a nightmare. And I really do hope the day comes when he receives some kind of apology, recognition and compensation and that those responsible for abandonning him (Canadian government) and those responsible for inflicting all of these things on him. are held responsible publicly. The whole thing is just unbelievable and so horrifying. Omar Khadr is a strong man, I don't think there are too many 15 year olds who would have come out alive after all of this...after over a decade of such a nightmare. I don't think I would have -M
ART TRANSFORMATIONS DECEMBER 10, 2014 - HUMAN RIGHTS DAY By Doug Brinkman - Wednesday evening inside the Art Gallery of Alberta - The sketch study I selected is of one of the worlds most deadliest marble quarries located in Makrana Northern India - The 60 minute sketch of Edward Burtynsky's "DEATH PITS" in pencil later transforms into a kaleidoscope that might represent some of the temple floors and walls most of this this marble now rests - Temples like the Taj Mahal, Mount Abu and Ranakur. Six workers are killed on average each month in this open quarry - In the past decade over 500 serious accidents have been recorded - 50 of these mines collapsed just in the year 2005 alone. The photographer Burtynsky is quoted saying "Beauty has an ENORMOUS CAPITAL COST" as Dynamite is set off continuously without warning. And they call this Capitalism - India is a democracy, one of Canada's favorite trading partners.- Why?
