Despite being banned from speaking in Canada, a scheduled lecture by British MP George Galloway will go ahead as planned, according to organizers.
Galloway is supposed to appear at the Bronson Centre April 2 as part of a four-city tour of Canada, but he has been barred from entering the country, allegedly for delivering a caravan worth more than $2 million to Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniya.?The Canadian government considers Hamas a terrorist organization.?
Joel Harden, with the Ottawa Peace Assembly, insists the caravan was medical supplies.?
Galloway is also an outspoken opponent of NATO’s current policy in Afghanistan.
The OPA, the Toronto Coalition to Stop the War, and the group Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights, is attempting to reverse the decision through a series of demonstrations and are preparing a legal challenge to the decision.?
