Rwandans must be secure in their right to oppose Kagame. When a Dream Becomes a Nightmare: The Story of Rwandan Canadian David Himbara. The Gaza Flotilla is a campaign for freedom.
David Himbara, John Honderich, David Heap
Dr. David Himbara is the former principal secretary to Rwandan President Paul Kagame. He describes how as an economic advisor, Mr. Himbara found that he was expected to falsify the true state of Rwanda’s economy. In the political realm he witnessed the violent removal of leading government members who differed with President Kagame. He left Rwanda for his own security but found that Rwandans abroad are not safe from a pursuing and punishing regime.
John Honderich, Chairman Torstar Board / Toronto Star, traces the role Rwandan-Canadian Dr. David Himbara played in the Kagame Regime. Honderich met Himbara during his four trips to Rwanda under the Rwanda Initiative Program geared to improve the level of journalism in the country. Over the years, Mr. Honderich observed the problems experienced by those who differed with the leadership, and believes Himbara was fortunate to leave when he did. Honderich hopes that attention to the Himbara case will help bring security to the Rwandan diaspora, which has experienced intimidation from the regime.

Elected representatives don't represent us on Palestine. Israel and Gaza: the law on occupation and self-defence.
David Heap, David Jacobs
David Heap can't hear the incessant pleas for NDP fundraising over the screaming of Gaza's children.
A growing number of Canadians, who support international law, are without place to turn when it comes to federal politicians. "There's barely any daylight between Mulcair and Trudeau and Harper."
Dissent against Israel's attack on Gaza is leaking out in parliaments all over the world, even among the U.K. Conservative Party. But the NDP is becoming isolated among sister left parties, who are not so constrained in condemning the attacks. There seems to be a more restrictive climate within Canadian political parties.
David Heap from Gaza's Ark discusses the growing discontent over the NDP's inaction in calling out Israel's very visible and widely acknowledged war crimes.
David Jacobs, International Lawyer, discusses the writings of the late international law expert Professor Michael Mandel on the legal status of Gaza and Israeli claims to be acting in self-defence against Gaza.
David Jacobs refers to a number of scholarly publications written by Professor Mandel including his February 5, 2009 article, "Self-Defense Against Peace," and notes how the same article could be written today regarding Israel’s recurring attacks on Gaza and its claims to be acting lawfully.

Mahdi Nazemroaya, David Heap
Mahdi Nazemroaya discusses his recent article "From Turkey With Love: Another Israeli Attack on Syria," and explains Israel and Turkey's role in the latest attack on Syria. "We shouldn't be skeptical about this event: Turkey and Israel have coordinated events before."
In addition to missing Jimmy Carter's statement that America has no functioning democracy, our media has also neglected to point out that over 90 prominent Canadian authors have signed a statement against the eviction of Palestinians in order to clear land for an Israeli army firing zone.
David Heap from Gaza's Ark updates us on the new construction, and also significant worldwide developments in Palestine solidarity.
