Freedom of press of the reactionary ruling classes
In 1961 and for years after, the French and Anglo-American media colluded with the state to cover up the 1961 massacre of Algerians in Paris, ensuring impunity for those responsible for this heinous crime such as the Nazi collaborator Maurice Papon, Prefect of the Paris police. This is an apt time to recall what happened. Continue reading
When the Seine was full of bodies – as many as 300 Algerians massacred in Paris by order of the police Prefect, a Vichy Nazi collaborator, who was never prosecuted for this heinous crime. The provocation came in the form of a police order that Muslim “citizens” of Algeria only should be subject to a curfew from 8.30pm to 5.30am, on the pretext that there had been a significant increase in the number of attacks on policemen. What happened on 17 October 1961 is not a matter solely for historians. Continue reading

Banner in mass actions at Munich Security Conference February 18, 2017: “Peace Instead of NATO – No to War!”
In June, the first of 450 Canadian soldiers will arrive in Latvia to lead a battalion in a large military buildup of NATO countries on Russia’s frontiers. According to reports, the Canadian-led battalion will have troops from Albania, Italy, Poland and Slovenia. Three other battalions of foreign soldiers, led by the U.S., Britain and Germany, respectively, are being placed in Estonia, Lithuania and Poland.

Freeland’s grandfather, Michael Chomiak. Front right is Emil Gassner, press administrator for the Nazi General government ruling occupied Poland.
(March 18) – The issues which have come to light about Chrystia Freeland demand her resignation for misrepresenting facts, concealing her past and deliberately hiding the truth about it to Canadians. Why? If she did not come clean about this what else will she not come clean about as foreign minister of Canada?
She has shown she is willing to address questions of war and peace, about which Canadians are very concerned, in a deceitful and arrogant way. This is not right or acceptable. A person who has a clear conscience does not resort to such double talk and shenanigans. Continue reading

“Ukraine’s agriculture could be a real gold mine.” – U.S.-Ukraine Business Council
The Harper government intervenes in Ukraine and provides troops, guns and “aid” under the pretext of opposing “Russian aggression.” Canadians should firmly reject this meddling in Ukraine’s affairs as they can no doubt extrapolate that the same process in the Ukraine is also being carried out by the imperialists in our country and elsewhere. In fact, while it is wrecking Canadian agriculture through neo-liberal globalization, secret trade deals such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and handing over the Canadian Wheat Board to U.S.-Saudi interests, CIDA is funding the plunder of the rich agricultural resources of Ukraine, as part of the U.S.-EU imperial project to subvert and annex that country. Well before the coup of February, 2014 CIDA had designated Ukraine as the one and only country in Europe as a strategic target of “aid.”
Canadians should be wary of illusions of the Trudeau Liberals, who are even more bellicose on Ukraine and were the ones to originally bind Canada to neo-liberal globalization. The Paul Martin Liberals were up the their necks in the 2004 “Orange Revolution,” which brought the open rule of the oligarchs to power. It merits attention that Trudeau’s spokesperson on Ukraine and chair of his council of economic advisers, Chrystia Freeland, is the grand-daughter of a Ukrainian Nazi collaborator (Mykhailo Chomiak, editor of Krakivs’ki visti [Cracow News] 1940-45), and sycophant of such billionaire oligarchs as Victor Pinchuk, for whom she moderates his annual Yalta European Strategy (YES).

Ed Fast, Minister of International Trade, led a “trade development mission” to Ukraine at the end of January 2015. A press release from Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada explained, “This trip reinforces Canada’s commitment to supporting Ukraine in its pursuit of freedom, democracy and economic growth.”
