Peace and justice loving Canadians have not been swayed by the nasty propaganda of the Saudi regime and its supporters in the west that their attack on Yemen is justified. Instead, hundreds of people braved strong winds to denounce the illegitimate Saudi regime for its equally illegitimate war on the poor people of Yemen. There were also demands to put the Saudi rulers on trial for war crimes.
Toronto, Crescent-onlineAs we know from their Al Quds Day "protests," they always love to bus in the chicks and kiddies. They think it gives them cred when, in fact, all it does is give people pause as to how all these raging Khomeinists, still dressed in their colourful homeland garb, managed to get into the country.

Hundred of peace and justice-loving Canadians braved strong winds to rally at Toronto’s Dundas Square today to denounce the Saudis’ illegal war on Yemen.
Chanting slogans against the Banu Saud as well as their masters in Washington DC, the protesters demanded an immediate halt to attacks on the Yemeni people that have killed more than 2,600 civilians so far.
They also demanded that humanitarian aid be provided to the people of whom more than 120,000 (according to UN figures) have been displaced from their homes since the Saudis and their allies launched their war of aggression on March 26.
There were also repeated calls for putting Saudi rulers on trial for war crimes since Yemen has not attacked Saudi Arabia.
Further, it is not the people of Yemen that have attacked Saudi Arabia, but the illegitimate regime of the Najdi Bedouins that has attacked the poorest Arab country in the region.
Speakers included Ken Stone from the Hamilton Coalition to Stop the War, Sid Lacombe of the Canadian Peace Alliance, Dave Mckwee of the Toronto Coalition to the Stop the War, Zafar Bangash Director Institute of Contemporary Islamic Thought and Maulana Zaki Bakri of Al Mahdi Centre.
There was a large group of women and children holding placards demanding an end to attacks on the Yemeni people as well as stopping all weapons supplies to the Saudi regime...
Where are our nation's gatekeepers, and why are they asleep at the switch?
|One might request--and observe--the same of Iran and its rulers.
Update: Here's Sid Lacombe, one of the Grandiose Ayatollah's useful idiots, bloviating at a Toronto Al Quds Day rally. And here's useful idiot Ken Stone being interviewed on Press TV.
