Mentally Ill? Welcome to Prison


Brave New Films

More than half of all suspects shot and killed by police were suffering from mental illness - this is crazy.

And over 300,000 Americans in prison today have a mental illness diagnosis.

That’s why today we are releasing part one of our new series, This is Crazy: Criminalizing Mental Illness. This three part series calls on the critical and immediate need for the treatment of mental health through a public health system, not the barbaric criminalization of it.

Zero tolerance for hypocrisy and complicity with Israeli war crimes!



New Democratic Party purges candidates over pro-Palestine positions in lead up to Canadian elections


Mondoweiss.net
Marion Kawas on August 24, 2015

"All three major federal parties in Canada need to be sent a loud and clear message that Palestinians and their supporters will not be censored and Palestinian rights will not be trampled on so easily. We must all show that there is zero tolerance for hypocrisy and complicity with Israeli war crimes!"

Canadian governments have a long history of complicity in Palestinian dispossession. As early as 1947, Lester B. Pearson, then Under Secretary of State for External Affairs and future Canadian Prime Minister, played a key role in drafting and passing the United Nations Partition Plan, so much so that Zionist groups dubbed him the “Balfour of Canada”.

Successive governments have carried on this tradition of one-sided support, although often under the pretense of “peacekeeping” and being a “honest broker”. Fast forward to...
