Ontario: Wide-scale defence of Francophone rights

Ontario government’s gratuitous attack on Francophone minority rights condemned

2018.12.01-OttawaFrancophoneRightsRally-03

Ottawa, December 1, 2018.

Condemnation of the Ford government’s decision to scrap the building of a French language university and to eliminate the Office of the French Language Commissioner in Ontario, announced as a “cost saving” measure in November, has been swift and widespread throughout the province and Canada. This cynical attack on Francophone Ontarians is an assault on the very nature of a society that Canadians want to have. Continue reading

Vast network of US bases in Africa

HandsOffAfricaU.S. MILITARY SAYS IT HAS A “LIGHT FOOTPRINT” IN AFRICA. THESE DOCUMENTS SHOW A VAST NETWORK OF BASES. | NICK TURSE

Bombardier debacle shows what it means  for Quebec to be ‘open for business’

While doing so, they also seized Brazil’s Embraer commercial jet production this past July. The anti-social pro-U.S. coup government of Brazil appears to have approved the Boeing takeover of Embraer. The former Brazilian governments of Presidents Lula da Silva and Dilma Rousseff opposed the U.S. war profiteers gaining control of Embraer. However, Rousseff was removed from office via a parliamentary coup in 2016 and Lula was unjustly imprisoned and blocked from running again for office this year. The foreign seizure of both Embraer and Bombardier’s commercial jet sectors leaves Boeing and the Pentagon in face-to-face open combat for dominance with Airbus and its European backers.
