May 15th: Mohammad Mahjoub Speaking Tour in Kingston

THE TWELVE YEAR TOUR

Mohammad Mahjoub on speaking tour
Tuesday May 15th, 6:30pm
Wilson Room, KFPL, 130 Johnson Street

*Ottawa–Montreal–Kingston–Guelph–London–Kitchener-Waterloo–Toronto*

For almost twelve long years, Mohammad Mahjoub, a torture survivor, has been detained without charge in Canada. He was held for lengthy periods in solitary confinement and later under house arrest. All on the basis of secret information which the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) has admitted was likely obtained under torture. Now, for the first time in twelve years, Mr. Mahjoub is permitted to travel outside Toronto.

Mr. Mahjoub is one of five Muslim men who have been struggling for justice in Canada against so-called security certificates. Security certificates allow the government to indefinitely detain or deport people on the basis of their profile. He will tell his story in a seven-city speaking tour, as the Justice for Mahjoub Network gears up for a day of protest to mark the 12th anniversary of his arrest on June 26th.

Kingston’s event is sponsored by:
No One Is Illegal Kingston, OPIRG Kingston, PSAC Local 901, Levana Gender Advocacy Centre, End the Prison Industrial Complex, Peace Kingston and CFRC 101.9FM.
