Community organizer Alex Hundert was arrested this morning at his surety’s home.
That was yesterday.
Ok, this is just becoming silly, if it weren’t such a tragic hint at the closing of Canadian society in its slide into Stephen Harper’s Soft Fascism.
Here is a primer of some core pieces to be aware of, in reverse chronological order:
- The House of Commons Public Safety Committee will begin today a 5-day inquiry into G20 abuses that will span the next several weeks.
- Alex Hundert’s continued state harassment continued with his re-arrest yesterday.
- While a justice of the peace foolishly agreed to draconian crown bail condition requests, a real judge has put a little judicial review on such abuses in the Leah Henderson bail conditions hearing. The rule of law may not yet be dead.
- “As can be “justified” in a “free” and “democratic” society?” is Kevin Harding’s take on the idiocy, and how it is Alex Hundert’s thoughts and opinions that the state fears.
- Why Alex Matters: Defending our Democracy from “our” Police & State is Jasmin Mujanovic’s perspective on the sphincter of the whole situation, with several key conclusions about the nature of principles being battled now.
- The Anti-Thanksgiving: Criminalizing Dissent in Canada is my analysis of trends leading to Canadian soft fascism.
- The Police State Infects An Apathetic Canada is how apathy is a companion to a closing society.
Many of these posts have key media links that carry many of the details of the surreal, Kafkaesque events that would fit in Gilliam’s Brazil.
It’s time to make time today to see what the House of Commons committee intends to do. If you get the sense from today that it will be a whitewashing, you need to get in touch with the MPs on the committee and light a fire under them. You can find out who they are here.
