Protesters fail to deter speech from controversial British politician


Former British MP George Galloway kicked off his cross country speaking tour at York University Tuesday night. Galloway was famously denied entry into Canada last year because he had supported Hamas and other groups that the Canadian government considers to be terrorist organizations. Federal Court ruled last month that Galloway is in fact allowed in the country.

A group of protesters chanted slogans and waived the Israeli flag in the foyer of a auditorium on campus while York security stood close by. Placards featured slogans such as “Go away Galloway,” and “No intimidation on my campus.”

After the talk, Galloway posted to his twitter that the night had gone well. “The cheers from the 700 at Toronto’s York Uni (sic) drowned and washed out the murmur from the Zionist protesters. A great night,” he wrote.

Galloway speaks

  1. George Galloway represents peace on earth. People of his standing speak of the subjugation of people, regardless of their ethnicity. He stands for justice for all, rather than justice for only the incumbents. Hamas does represent Palestine, to a degree, but so does Sinn Fein and their allegiance with the IRA represent Northern Ireland, to a degree. Gerry Adams has never been denied entry into Canada, yet the IRA is held in the same repute with Hamas as a terrorist organization. Whats with the dual standard? Is it because of the undemocratic, unelected, interest group the Jewish Defense League and their influence on the Conservative government? Whatever the case may be, denying entry into Canada on the condition that a private organization intent on exhibiting only Zionism, rather than the ful story smacks of censorship. Hamid Karzai is contemplating entering discussions with the Taliban in Afghanistan to stop the brutal conflict that has been waging for years, a humane thing to do because ordinary citizens suffer the most, not those in power. If anything, the JDL should be investigated in this scenario, to see exactly what there intentions are…

  2. …and to EXACTLY, where their money goes.

  3. This is of great, great concern. I don’t post much. This is from his bio:Dr. Shoukri’s scholarly interests are in thermo-fluid sciences; particularly areas related to multi-phase heat transfer and nuclear reactor thermal-hydraulics

    This nest bio is of the president of the University of Western Ontario Dr. Amit Chakma: His research interests include mass transfer, gas separation, gas processing, membrane separation, petroleum waste management, greenhouse gas control technology, and energy and environmental systems modeling.

    Am I paranoid?

    BTW: Both universities had issues since their presidency’s: One went on strike the other averted at the 13th hour. The issue with both was “academic freedom”

    Just sayin’

  4. Galloway is a windbag. I supported his legal right to enter Canada to speak but don’t think highly of him. Matt says he wants peace. Maybe he does. But I doubt most Israeli’s would agree that a one state solution is a path to peace.
