A presentation given in Montreal on Wednesday, October 17th, hosted by Tadamon! Montreal & the Quebec Public Interest Research Group (QPIRG) at McGill University within the context of the campaign to challenging Hezbollah’s listing as a ’Terrorist’ Group in Canada.
Brian Aboud, a social activist, professor and academic speaks about the importance of challenging Canada's categorization of Hezbollah as a 'terrorist' organization in Canada.
Challenging Hezbollah’s listing as a ’Terrorist’ Group in Canada
* Create greater space to freely discuss and engage in struggles for justice in the Middle East without fear of persecution or labeling;
* Reduce the vulnerability of migrants subjected to racial profiling and unjust immigration ’security’ measures;
* Confront the demonization of all who resist US-driven policies for a ’new Middle East’; and
* Challenge the Canadian government’s unconditional support for Israeli aggression.
Selectively Terrified, by Mary Foster of Tadamon! Montreal.
Radio Tadamon! is produced by Tadamon! a collective of activists in Montreal working to build solidarity between movements for social and economic justice between Montreal and the Middle East.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
