The videos below are the fruits of my weekend spent at the International Peace Pow-Wow.
by Joshua Blakeney STAFF WRITER
Here in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada, we had the International Peace Pow-Wow this weekend (February 26th and 27th). I made this first You Tube (below) to attempt to demonstrate to those who cannot imagine what a bi-national, multi-religious Palestinian state would look like, that multi-national states can and do exist. The indigenous peoples in Canada whilst being denied full economic and legal equality, do at least enjoy certain cultural freedoms which they took full advantage of this weekend in Lethbridge. The events at the Pow-Wow stand in stark contrast to the apartheid-like policies implemented against the indigenous peoples of Palestine by the unlawful Israeli government.
Earth into Property: Colonization, Decolonization and Capitalism
In these next three videos Splitting the Sky and I review Prof. Anthony J. Hall’s recently published book “Earth into Property: Colonization, Decolonization and Capitalism.” In his book – which is the third fully peer-reviewed book showing skepticism towards the official story of 9/11 – Hall situates the Global War on Terror and the fraudulent events of 9/11 within the context of 500 years of history. It is a 934 page blockbuster which is a must read for those who wish to understand the evolution of Globalization since 1492. More information about the book can be found here: http://mqup.mcgill.ca/book.php?bookid=2538
Splitting The Sky: The Man Who Tried to Arrest George W. Bush
Splitting The Sky attempted a citizen’s arrest on George W. Bush in Calgary, Alberta, Canada on March 17, 2009 during Bush’s first visit to a foreign country without diplomatic immunity. Splitting the Sky invoked the laws enshrined in Canada’s Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes Act (2000) to argue that George W. Bush should have been arrested upon entering Canada due to his status as a credibly accused war criminal. During his trial which some dubbed “The Trial of Splitting the Sky versus George W. Bush” both Cynthia McKinney and Splitting the Sky’s former lawyer Ramsey Clark flew in to Calgary to attempt to address the court. Splitting the Sky is a prominent peace-activist who also participated in the Attica Prison debacle of 1971 at the age of 19.
