George Galloway~Canadian FREE SPEECH Protesters March on MP's Office

This will be a disaster for the Canadian Government. They picked the wrong man to ban and their refusal to allow Galloway into Canada will be a blessing for Galloway who will milk this for every TV spot he can. All the while bringing the message of Gaza to thousands of people he would have never reached, thank you Canada!!

Protesters on the march to MP's office

March 28, 2009 09:54 AM - Outraged citizens hoping to meet Great Britain MP George Galloway are picketing Conservative MP Bob Derchert's office this afternoon to pressure the government to reverse its ban on the outspoken anti-war MP.

Galloway was scheduled to speak at venues in Mississauga, Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa in a series of engagements hosted by the Toronto Coalition to Stop the War. However, Galloway has been banned by the Canadian government on grounds of national security.

Galloway was to speak in Mississauga on Tuesday.

Organizers are asking the public to defend free speech by attending the picket at 1270 Central Pkwy W. at 2 p.m. The picket is a part of many organized across the Greater Toronto Area this weekend.

Organizers are also encouraging the public to continue buying tickets to the shows that will still proceed through video conference if their efforts are in vain.
