Anti-Zionist group protests lectures by far-right UK politician PDF Print E-mail

Members of the anti-Fascist group Pegida Watch Canada held protests at events in Montreal and Toronto – the latter sponsored by the Jewish Defence League – that featured a far-right British politician who Pegida Watch says promotes the anti-Islam, anti-immigrant movement that’s taking hold in the Western world.

On March 9, Act for Canada, a group that speaks out about the “clear and present dangers emerging from those who do not embrace Canada’s values along with the threat of homegrown terrorism,” organized a lecture at Ruby Foos restaurant in Montreal by Paul Weston, the leader of Pegida UK, an acronym in German for Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West.

On March 10, the Jewish Defence League (JDL) sponsored a lecture at the Toronto Zionist Centre by Weston and Lars Hedegaard, president of the Danish Free Press Society. It was titled “The threat of radical Islamic immigration and the erosion of our freedoms.”

Scott Weinstein, a member of the anti-Zionist group Independent Jewish Voices (IJV)-Montreal’s steering committee, said news about the Montreal protest, which attracted about 60 to 70 people, resulted in the event’s cancellation.

Protesters tell Deltaport to “free Palestine” and block the boat

They say the boat has links to Israeli war crimes

DELTA (NEWS1130) Sept. 6 2014 – A group of activists are protesting the expected arrival of an Israeli ship at Deltaport.

The group is promoting the message of “Let Gaza Live and free Palestine.”

The boat is operated by ZIM, which protesters say is connected with the plight of people in Palestine and they think it’s wrong that a company involved in the warfare should profit by using local ports.

John Turnbull is one of the demonstrators and is hopeful the message will be effective. “As worker said, ‘this should be done all around the world.’ Workers at Delta are just as aware of the news as the rest of us are and are just as concerned about it.”

Similar demonstrations have been successful in Oakland, California.

The boat is due to arrive at 11 a.m. tomorrow.
