Globe&Post: Human rights are universal. Join us

Published by at 10:55 pm under Uncategorized

A new Canadian-based front develops in the war of decency and respect for human rights versus fascism and terror: The Canada-Afghanistan Solidarity Committee website has officially launched.

Our members believe that Canada’s continuing involvement in the UN-supported mission in Afghanistan is necessary. We have the support of Canadians from across the political spectrum and from all walks of life.

We are concerned that debate in Canada about this mission has excluded Afghans and ignored Afghan public opinion. That debate has been manipulated for partisan reasons by those who have failed to fully consider the consequences for Afghans and for the region if Canadian troops were to withdraw prematurely.

Check out our principles. If you agree with them, please join the Canada-Afghanistan Solidarity Committee.

Congratulations to tireless BC author and journalist Terry Glavin, fearless and eloquent CW4WA activist, organizer and consultant Lauryn Oates, lightning-fast writer and web magician Ian King and website design guru Rob Wilson for their efforts in getting this important work done in record time. My own contribution has been modest by comparison, but I am nonetheless proud to have done my small part.
