If Conservatives win because of Trudeau's youthful stupidity it will be a tragedy 19.9.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Karl Nerenberg In case you somehow missed it, U.S.-based Time magazine threw a grenade into the Canadian election campaign on Wednesday evening when it published a 2001 photo of Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau in brownface , dressed up as Aladdin for a costume party at the Vancouver private school where he worked. Trudeau fully apologized, in what sounded like an entirely unscripted and unrehearsed way. In fact, the Liberal leader went further than a simple apology. He freely acknowledged another similar incident, in which he wore blackface and did an imitation of Harry Belafonte singing the calypso song "Day-O." (Global News subsequently came out with a third instance of what they say is blackface behaviour.) Opposition leaders did not waste any time to share their reactions.  Green Leader Elizabeth May pointed out that Trudeau would probably have fired any Liberal candidate about whom similar revelations emerged during the campaign. She added she was puzzled that, in 2001, a grown man, son of a former ...

Trudeau feeds anti-refugee scapegoating for election 1.5.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Politics in Canada For the past two decades, my late-night trips to 24-hour Tim Hortons restaurants have been synonymous with fear. It's not the artery-clogging threat of consuming sprinkled Timbits that has made my heart race, however. Rather, it is the look of terror on the faces of those who have requested a meeting. They are some of the most vulnerable people one could meet. They share a common stigma stamped on them by a callous immigration bureaucracy. They are known by the insulting moniker of "failed" refugee claimants, and have become part of what the Canadian government inhumanely calls its "removals inventory." As we sit with our coffees and crullers in what is often the only "neutral" venue available, they look over their shoulders, shrink in their seats, and express their dismay that no one believes them when they document how they were tortured. Furthermore, authorities have dismissed the grave threat they face if deported back to their home country. Usually, they are couch surfing, because ...

Anthology project aims to rewrite the refugee narrative 18.9.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Arts & Culture Utopia, translated literally, means "no place," according to Canadian writer Karen Connelly , who has landed at Berlin's 18th International Literature Festival directly from Lesvos, Greece, her other home. It's a fitting statement concerning the subject matter of the panel she is sitting on. (The word was coined by Sir Thomas More in 1516 as the title of a book. Its meaning is an ideal place that does not exist). Connelly, a human rights activist whose 11 books of poetry, fiction and creative nonfiction include three books that have explored the stories of Burmese dissidents, political prisoners and refugees, was one of four writers launching a preview of the anthology Refugees Worldwide II. "The problems of the world can be overwhelming, but many people do care," proclaimed Connelly, whose life path has taken her into many places of conflict. Her 2005 novel The Lizard Cage (set in a solitary confinement cell in Burma) captured Britain's Orange Broadband New Novelist's Prize and was ...

Trump policy on Palestinian refugees is fatally flawed 4.9.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Thomas Woodley Donald Trump has got it dead wrong with the U.S.' new position on Palestinian refugees. In fact, the Trump administration's decision last week to cease funding to the UN aid agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) demonstrates shocking ignorance of both the Middle East conflict and refugee law.  Disturbing details of Jared Kushner's supposed " Deal of the Century " for Israel-Palestine have been leaking for months, so it was no surprise when the Trump administration accused UNRWA Friday of being an "irredeemably flawed operation" that no longer merited U.S. financial support. Many see it as a first step to taking the question of Palestinian refugees off the negotiating table. Kushner is on record as asserting that for Mideast peace, the U.S. might have to "strategically risk breaking things," and Kushner seems well on his way with such an approach with the Palestinian refugees. But let's be real: such an approach is nonsense.  Incensed with Trump's Jerusalem decree last winter, the ...

Three days in Greece with Anwar Nilufary 24.7.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Raluca Bejan So, you don't accept the accusation? We cannot move forward since the witnesses are not present. They were not summoned, and I need the witnesses to testify. They must testify. Do not talk. Just listen for two minutes. Just listen! The prosecutor recommends postponing the case, so the police and the witnesses can be summoned. This is what the Court is deciding now. And the policeman must testify as well. The policeman was an eye witness there. Don't! Don't talk! Just listen. Don't be erratic here because you know your situation. It is better for you just to listen for the time being. Listen, for the day of 20th of September at 9 a.m. in the morning. We write it down for you here; they are not going to give you a summons, they are not going to give you a paper. This is for you to remember it. That is all. You come on the 20th of September. You will have to make an application for that one…for the lawyer. Listen, the Court will not appoint a lawyer. Listen! Listen, Shh! Quiet! Quiet! No, no, ...

Winnipeg's undocumented: A case for access without fear 22.6.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Karen Hamilton Krista Johnston Reports about refugees walking across the Canada-U.S. border beginning in the spring of 2017 renewed concerns about immigration policy and undocumented migrants in Winnipeg. In fact, the vast majority of migrants to Canada enter legally, through official ports of entry, and with documentation that is presented to and checked by border officials. Although walking across an international border is irregular, those who did so in 2017 were met by RCMP or Canada Border Services Agency officials, and their status as refugee claimants was both verified and documented. In short, these migrants did not enter illegally, their status as refugee claimants is legal, they are documented and their movement in Canada is tracked by border officials. But this does not mean that they have walked into all of the rights and entitlements of full Canadian citizenship. On the contrary: their status is legal but precarious, just as is the case for many of those who enter through Canada's temporary ...

U.S. Teacher of the Year Mandy Manning advocates for country's most vulnerable students 10.5.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
US Politics In the midst of thousands of teachers walking out of schools around the country, demanding fair salaries and proper funding for their classrooms, one teacher, Mandy Manning, was invited into the White House last week, where President Donald Trump presented her with the 2018 Teacher of the Year Award. While the press heard Trump's remarks, they were not allowed to witness her acceptance speech. The little we know about what transpired is thanks to one of Manning's friends, who made a cellphone recording of her speech. In his remarks, Trump failed to mention that Manning teaches math and English to refugee and immigrant students at the Newcomer Center at Joel E. Ferris High School in Spokane, Washington. If he had his way, many students like hers would be banned from entering the United States in the first place. "I am honored and humbled to be the vehicle through which my students may tell their stories," Manning said in the historic East Room, as billionaire Education Secretary Betsy DeVos ...
