galloway in toronto federal court on sunday, be there!

Oh man, I wish I could go to this! I can't, but maybe you can. I will definitely be at the Toronto Galloway event on Monday. In fact, I'll be watching the House of Commons vote on our motion from our table there.

But if you're in the Toronto area and you don't work on Sunday like I do, here's news from the Toronto Coalition to Stop the War:

Pack the court on Sunday!

Federal Court hearing on ban on George Galloway


George Galloway's Canadian legal team will be in federal court on Sunday to argue against Jason Kenney's ban preventing Galloway from entering Canada. The Defend Free Speech campaign is calling on all supporters to show up at the federal court to attend the hearing, which is open to the public. Help us pack out the court: the more people we have in attendance, the more clearly we show support for our case.

Before the hearing begins, we will hold a Free Speech rally outside the court house, starting at 10:30 a.m. Please bring placards and banners to show your support for free speech, and to oppose the ban on George Galloway from entering Canada.

A ruling on the ban is expected to be made at the hearing or later in the day.

We won't let Jason Kenney silence us, and we won¹t let him silence George Galloway! See you on Sunday!

This works out SO WELL for me! SuMei is going in to the office tomorrow morning. Her building is literally next door to the Federal Court building. I will be there!

Thanks for posting this!
