Ottawa Should End Paradoxical Arms Deal with Saudis

By Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East, October 28, 2018

After years of justified public opposition to the deal, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau finally said earlier this week that he might consider freezing or cancelling the deal. CJPME calls the government to take this step immediately. If not now, CJPME questions when the Canadian government would ever consider sanctioning the Saudi government given its unlawful behaviour with Khashoggi, with the war in Yemen, its treatment of activists, women and minorities, and other issues.

Mumia Abu Jamal and the Prison Industrial Complex

By Shane Quinn, October 26, 2018

By the middle of 1933, and now more than a decade in control, Mussolini planned to launch attacks against first Yugoslavia, and then France no less. Any such ventures would likely have been doomed to failure. Italy was further hampered by being a resource-poor country, lacking the raw materials essential in conducting lasting wars. Mussolini only cancelled the invasions after learning that French intelligence had cracked some of his military codes.
