UPDATE; Moazzam Begg on Guantanamo Bay; refused entry to Canada

Conference in Montreal: Tuesday, May 24th


Global Research Editor’s note

Moazzam Begg was refused access to a London Toronto Air Canada flight following a request by Canada’s High Commission in London to Air Canada: so much for freedom of expression. Begg was travelling on a British passport.

The Canadian government is involved in suppressing analysis and debate on detention and torture at Guantanamo.
