Idle No More: 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

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.

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

Edmonton May 31, 2014 :Hundreds gathered at Dr. Wilbert McIntyre park on Saturday for the fourth annual Slut Walk in Edmonton with a focus on intersectionality.
When my children ask me about what I did when I saw people getting killed and oppressed, 
I do not want to tell them 
that I stood silently.

Edmonton July 1, 2014: Cree-Metis artist Dawn Marie Marchand hopes her work can give some insight into the inter-generational suffering caused by Indian Residential Schools. Her art installation inside the big tent during the annual Works Festival uses over 500 paper bricks to represent the substandard building materials the schools were built with.

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

In Gaza, Palestinians point to the rubble: 'Our dreams, our children are there'                
Edmonton July 25, 2014 : Around 700 Edmontonians gathered for a third rally in as many weeks rallying for the people of Gaza in front of the Alberta legislature. This YouTube is is an open "Edmonton Speaker's Corner with stories and comments taken from corporate news media.  At the end of the day the death toll in Palestinian territory past the 900 mark.

Editor's Note Poor Video Results : The reactions from my YouTube news report recorded during Friday's rally titled Palestinians point to the rubble: 'Our dreams, our children are there' was poorly received with only 39 views by Sunday morning July 27, 2014. Compared to the first 2 rallies those YouTubes published received over 2000 views across Canada, U.S. Europe, Israel and Gaza. Most of that success came from others sharing and re-posting those videos. 

I don't quite know what happened this time since I did follow the same recipe for success from the first 2 videos but after working 16 hours to produce this video with costs covered freely by Hawkeyi Media It makes no sense to continue so regrettably this will be my last report on covering future rallies on Gaza if these numbers don't reach the same results as the first 2.

EDMONTON July 26, 2014: These 2 intoxicated homeless people caused much havoc during the Hare Krishna Chariot Festival yesterday where I was hired as official media. They became violent and confrontational with organizers during a staged performance by young actors putting on a play. The man was swinging a chair around threatening to hit his wife during the performance. I went over and talked to them soon after they were ushered out of the tent to see if I could calm them down. They presently live in the area of Millwoods taking refuge under blankets each night. Originally from the Sampson Cree Band of Maskwacis south of the city. I sat and listened to their stories. Donna soon asked if I could take their picture together. So I did... When I said I had to go now Donna reached for my arms and also asked for a hug. Her husband said "Go ahead, give her a hug" so I did. Donna asked as I was leaving what I was going to do with this picture? I said I'll share it with family and friends here on facebook. So here it is...
So if you're walking down the street sometime and spot some hollow ancient eyes, please don't just pass 'em by and stare as if you didn't care, say, "Hello in there, hello." John Prine
