This is my Story by Henry Basil
Omar Khadr: 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.

Emergency Rally For Palestinian People in Gaza #yeg Part 1  &Part 2 Link
Edmonton July 8, 2014 - About 200 Palestinian Canadians rallied tonight under the watchful eye of the Edmonton Police Service after police received erroneous complaints that an anti semitic rally was being staged. This was never the case as key speakers called for Israel to end it's settler terrorism and collective punishment against the palestinian people in Gaza. 

Yesterday Sun Media's Ezra Levant attempted to stir emotions with Sun readers by describing Canadien Palestinians who staged a similar protest last Thursday in Toronto as rioters and extremists. Some at tonight's rally indicated they do not regard Sun Media as a legitimate news service.  See Ezra Levant

Breathless Sunsets - Good Night Edmonton
On August 6 on 1945 the US dropped a uranium gun-type atomic bomb (Little Boy) on Hiroshima followed by a plutonium implosion-type bomb (Fat Man) on the city of Nagasaki on August 9. Within the first two to four months of the bombings, the acute effects killed 90,000–166,000 people in Hiroshima and 60,000–80,000 in Nagasaki; roughly half of the deaths in each city occurred on the first day. During the following months, large numbers died from the effect of burns, radiation sickness, and other injuries, compounded by illness. In both cities, most of the dead were civilians. Wikipedia

Today bombs, some made in US and Canada continue to kill and injure civilians around the planet... most recently in Gaza.

I am disappointed in the human rights organizations and the UN for taking 65 years to realize (or admit) that Israel is committing warcrimes. I'm tired of the passive language that is used, 'possibility of warcrimes'?? Human rights organizations should be just as blunt as the states who try to justify killing children.

The Slutwalk is a transnational movement of protest marches which began on April 3, 2011, in Toronto, Ontario, with subsequent rallies occurring globally. Participants protest against explaining or excusing rape by referring to any aspect of a woman's appearance, and call for an end to rape culture. The rallies began after Constable Michael Sanguinetti, a Toronto Police officer, suggested that "women should avoid dressing like sluts" as a precaution against unwanted sexual attention. Wikipedia
