Book Launch of "an extraordinary expose"
PAVED with GOOD INTENTIONS:
Canada's development NGOs from idealism to imperialism.
By Nikolas Barry-Shaw and Dru OJA Jay
Thursday, April 26, 7 pm
T.A.N. Coffee, 317 Wilbrod St.
"NGOs are as Canadian as hockey," a 1988 Parliamentary report declared. Few institutions embody the image of Canada's international benevolence like non-governmental organizations devoted to development abroad. But do the actions of Canadian NGOs genuinely match this perception? Ranging from poverty in Africa to turmoil in Haiti, from Israeli-Palestinian peace talks to the Afghanistan war, Paved with Good Intentions uncovers the darker side of the role played by NGOs.

at the Montreal Human Rights Film Festival 2010.
Co-sponsored by Amnesty International and Nowar-Paix
Three Canadian men; Abdullah Almalki, Ahmad El Maati and Muayyed Nureddin were detained and tortured for months and years in Syria and, in Ahmad El Maati's case, Egypt. Upon their release, they return to Canada and try to find answers to why they were detained in the first place.
This is a documentary about how fragile the balance between democracy, human right and national security can be in the post 9/11 era. The film also focuses on the effects of torture on the human mind and spirit.

than 100,000 Iraqi civilians have died because of the Iraq war and
occupation. The U.S. bombing of Najaf, Sammarah, Sadr City in Baghdad,
Fallujah and other areas outside of the political control of the
occupying forces brings further death to innocent civilians. .Because
Paul Martin’s Liberals are intent on deeper integration with
the United States, there is a danger that they will decide to “answer
the call for peace keeping” in Iraq. This would be a tragedy,
since the situation in Iraq has nothing to do with peace keeping
and reconstruction. It is about occupation, influence, and oil.
We must continue to remind the Martin government that we consider
the war and occupation in Iraq to be illegal and immoral and that
we want Canada to stay out. Posters,

Paul Martin's priorities are wrong: He canít say yes to same-sex

a bad start to a relationship that affects us all. We invite you
to the "uncivil union" of Jr. and Jr. on Parliament Hill a week
before Valentine's Day. As Paul Martin promises to love, honour
and help pay for a new arms race, we all need to stand up for world

gifts. So please bring cardboard missiles (as effective as missile
defense but much cheaper and safer) inscribed with your personal
message about their commitment to drag Canada into a new arms race.
