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.

London-based Moazzam Begg is the director of the British human rights organization Cage prisoners. He was held in Guantánamo Bay for two years and in Bagram for one year between 2002 and 2005. In January 2005, he was released without charge, without explanation, without compensation and has since been living and working in England.
As a former cell-mate of Omar Khadr, Begg was featured in the recent film You don’t like the truth: 4 days inside Guantanamo.
Come out to hear Moazzam Begg, speaking for the first time in Montreal.
