Police Harassment continues as Cops try to illegally arrest me claiming I was panhandling

30 Jun

Today I left my sick dad’s house when I noticed that I was being followed by police. They followed me all the way to my friend’s house then to the working centre and then back to King and Frederick. I recognized one of the police officers in the cruiser as the one who was at the illegal eviction of 32CSM International Headquarters which also happens to be Freddy Barsoum’s mom’s house. This cop in particular showed clear contempt for rule of law at this eviction during the unlawful confiscation of this property as he refused to even speak to our lawyer nor look at any legal documents pertaining to whom the lawful owners of this property were. He strikes me ass one of those people who makes up for their lack of intelligence with sheer brute force.

At King and Frederick they performed an Unlawful U-turn at King and Frederick, one of the busiest intersections in Kitchener, which is currently under construction and a hazardous area for both pedestrians and traffic.

They approached my friend and I. Stating that we were breaking the law by pan-handling. I told the officer that I was speaking to a friend about a political action and as such was not pan-handling -I also informed the officer that there was in fact no law against pan-handling. I also informed him that the law which he was referring to was quite specific and targets exclusively so-called aggressive pan-handling. I then stated that given that I was not near an ATM nor asking for money nor was I approaching vehicles that were stopped – I was not breaking that law either.

So I told the officer that I had nothing more to say to them. This police officer seems to have problems comprehending simple facts and the law which he had sworn to uphold as he continued to follow me yelling nonsense and telling me to come back. As there was no reason for me to talk to this officer I ignored the rantings of this delusional testosterone fuelled manbaby and continued to go on with my business. He continued to rant like a raving lunatic and fearing for my safety I made myself scarce. This did not stop the officer from continuously stalking and harassing me. When he saw that he was getting nowhere with me. He started to stalk my friend and rant and rave at him.

it is quite clear that these illegal attacks are a result of our political work and instead of deterring us they only strengthen our resolve. If these police threaten to illegally kidnap and detain us we will continue to resist these unlawful attacks as is our right under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. These allegations of pan-handling are an attack on my class background, assuming that I come from a working class family I must resort to pan-handling.

I would like to remind the police that I have multiple colleagues who are lawyers and that I freelance as a legal clerk for a variety of law offices here in Kitchener as well as in Toronto. and I would like nothing more than to drag these fuckers in front of a judge and sue them for every penny they have. Their latent disregard for rule of law reveals their despair in the face of a genuine people’s movement.

Court and Sheriff’s office missing documents and have no legal explanation for eviction of Freddy Barsoum and the 32CSM Int. Office

28 Jun

Digital Camera

Today we accompanied Freddy Barsoum to the second level to speak to the people who are gatekeepers to the legal records of court proceedings to get copies of the court affidavits filed on March 28th as well as the court transcripts from the 29th and 30th. To our surprise they said these documents don’t exist. This led to a long drawn out discussion where people who attended those court dates were like these dates happened and one security guard when asked remember one of those dates.

Seeing that this was getting nowhere we decided to go to the sheriff’s office and demand an explanation only to find out that the sheriff’s department is behind the same window that these people who magically lose documents work behind. We took a number and demanded an explanation and stated we would not leave until we got one. No one came for quite some time even though our number was called. We decided to sit until someone came at which point we were told that the sheriff was not there. One person decided to help us and when we gave him the address of the property they said that nothing has gone through the tribunal at which point we stated clearly this was fraud and at this point like the other court documents and dates this person disappeared when he realized how bad he fucked up.

Finally representatives from the sheriffs office came and stated that it was a writ of possession and that it was final. This was different then what was stated on the door and even if this was the case tenants and representatives still need to be notified which did not happened, and they themselves admitted that it did not go through the tribunal by responding to my comment this did not go through the tribunal with it doesn’t have to.

In conclusion this whole case is full of fraud and dirty deals and as far as we are concerned no legal process has been followed to take this house other then force, so we will in turn reclaim that which has been taken by force with the power of the masses.

The theft of our office and the home of Freddy and his mother shows the contempt that the state have for people and rule of law. This case is a clear example if the violence of the system that is accountable to no one not even their own bourgeois standards.

Freddy Barsoum leaves house cops declare it vacant, ignore one year lease of the 32CSM International Dept.

28 Jun

Today Freddy decided to leave his house and in his absence the police and the sheriff declared it vacant and changed the locks. This was done without going to the tribunal or following any rule of law. Freddy was made aware of this by a police officer as well as a community mental health worker who was there if he wanted to talk about his feelings. Freddy seeing this as the insult that it is told the working centre staff, who were there because the police spoke to him at the working centre, to tell the police to stop insulting him and leave him alone. Freddy then attended the police station with myself who gave no explanation other then to say that the sheriff and police did attend his property.

Freddy myself and others then went to the place where he lives to find the locks changed and a notice of vacant possession on the door and the locks changed. Since the house was not vacant and the 32CSM Int. Dept. has a 1 year lease we looked around till we found an open screen door. We then entered the place and noticed that the whole place was tossed around as if someone was looking for something. At this point we noticed the bathroom door was locked and after awhile someone who identified themselves as a security guard locked themselves in the bathroom threatening to call the police. We responded that since this property was not vacant and no rule of law was followed he was the trespasser. We called our lawyer and prepared ourselves for police to come. Police came and refused to speak to our lawyer and proceeded to remove us. after we were out we found out that the security guard was really Freddy’s brother whom has illegally connived to steal the property from Freddy’s moms and put her in a home against her will and Freddy’s will so he could get the property. Freddy’s mom Mary is currently being held against her will and the will of Freddy whom has the Power of Attorney as a result of the actions of Freddy’s greedy brother Reggie. This notice of vacant possession is fraudulent as it is clear that Freddy lived there and the Int. Dept. of the 32CSM has a one year lease and is another underhanded move by someone who has no problem screwing over his own mom for money.

Tonight Freddy is homeless as a result of this illegal act.

We call on people to join us as we reclaim this property. Anypne who can camp out tomorrow should come to 530 Westvale and join us as we stand in defense of rule of law and against illegal evictions.

26 Jun

Julian and Don speaking at the event.

On Friday, in a public meeting with the representatives of several social agencies, we issued a our proposal, along with our deadline for the demands contained within to be met. We pinpointed the issues faced by our community along with our solution, hard won from practice and refined with a theoretical and social perspective. A guest from the RSM-Montreal delivered a personal testimony about the necessity of housing and political participation for affirming the personal dignity of ourselves as political subjects. Afterwords we addressed the concerns and elaborated the salient points of our proposal. We are glad to say that our proposal was positively received by the groups in attendance and there was constructive and clarifying dialogue between all organizations involved.

While we were in attendance, we were inform of a concurrent Community Consultation on the changing urban landscape in our city, which was coincidentally taking place at the same locale. Some of our comrades were able to participate in this as well after our public meeting was adjourned. Our friends and comrades raised crucial topics and provided perspective to the groups assembled there and voiced our concern as members of the downtown community.

With regard to our proposal, we need to hear the voices and concerns of you, the members of our community, so we can see this through and ensure a victory therefore we are going to be holding public meetings about the proposal at the Queens Street Commons at 5 pm, every Wednesday.

Police continue to stalk and harass myself and my comrades

22 Jun

On Tuesday undercover officers encircled the 32CSM International office headquarters and attempted to gain entry. There excuse is to find myself. They left a card. After this they interrogated several comrades asking my whereabouts and have been following comrades and encircling places where I have been even attempting to talk to me with no good reason. I am not hiding from the police and there excuses are growing thin. This harassment needs to end immediately. The crown forces have no right to criminalize people for there politics and any attempts to continue on this path will be met with resistance.

Long Live The 32CSM
Long Live The Resistance to all Settler states!!!!!
Victory Belongs To US!!!!!!!

Anti Internment Munster MSG of Solidarity to the ILPS meeting in Montreal

Speech for the 100th Anniversary of the Russian Revolution.

Honored comrades, allies and supporter, today we honour and mark the 100th anniversary of the great Russian Revolution of 1917. It was an important date in Human and World history when after 3 years of pointless slaughter on the Eastern Front of World War I or as it is known in Russia, the Great Imperialist War the Russian people rose up against the crimes of the tsar and others in the ruling class at the time and overthrew the tsarist regime and established a people’s republic for the peoples of Russia. Saddly another revolution had to take place later on in the year known to history as the October Revolution led by Lenin and his supporters in order to end the pointless imperialist war that was being continued by the provisional government that had been established in the aftermath of the February Revolution also in 1917. The October Revolution was largely bloodless and Lenin gave full language and other rights to the newly established smaller republics and ethnic groups throughout the new soon to be Union of Soviet Socialist Republics or USSR. Languages such as Georgian, Armenian and others which were suppressed under the tsars were promoted and protected under the Soviets, an act that is rarely remembered today with many in the west calling the Soviet Union the Russian empire by another name. Very few even in Ireland are aware that Lenin was one of the very, very few Socialists to support the Easter Rising of 1916 and the wars that followed for Irish independence. Very few are even aware that there were soviets set up in Limerick, Dublin and throughout Munster in many countless local areas from 1919-1923 when they were brutally crushed by the counter revolutionary forces of the Free State army and war machine who were backed up by the arms and money of British imperialism during the Irish Civil War of 1922-1923 inwhich at least 8,000 Irish people were to die. The Irish soviets of which there were too many to focus on here were all anti Treaty and pro Republican not only during the Tan War but also the Civil War that followed til they were violently crushed in 1923. The soviets re-established Republican rule and government in many areas laid waste by the Black and Tans during 1920-1922 especially and rebuilt the economy of those and other areas too. Many are also unaware of Patrick Mac Cartan and his mission to the Russian Republic during the War of Independence or Tan War from 1918-1922 in order to get Russian help in the liberation of Ireland. Had he succeeded in a deal it would have greatly increased and aided Irish Resistance and would most likely have promoted goodwill and understanding between the Catholic Church and Soviet Union during the American led Cold War. But saddly this was not to be. Mac Cartan came very close to an alliance or agreement between Russia and the Irish Republic in 1921 but Brit spies and intelligence forces wrecked the plan as they were in great fear of what the Irish Republic and Soviet Union might achieve together in their common fight for freedom for all man kind. The Soviets even gave the Irish Republic a good part of the tsarists crown jewels to finance and continue the war against the Brit invaders in early 1921. Saddle however this was not to be. Had the Irish managed to reach an agreement with the Soviets in time the world would have changed for the better but alas comrades we cannot cry over what could have been, we have to look and plan and drive forward with what can be tomorrow. Sadly the Soviet Union is no longer with us and because of this the world is a far far darker place as imperialist forces run riot across the globe waging war on many different religions and cultures that stand in their way or look like they are about to stand in their evil way. We must continue the struggle until victory is ours once again comrades, and continue it we will.

ILPS Conference in Montreal successful in bringing together the struggles of the peoples and setting plan of action.

14 Jun

This Saturday there was a conference in Montreal to commemorate the 1917 Revolution. The purpose of this conference wasn’t aimed at glorifying past struggles but rather an attempt to get the progressive sectors of society to discuss how to build revolution through mass work. The event started with a panel that included Davyn Calfchild, a Hereditary Chief who is on a 13 day fast against the oppression of his people. The Panel also included our Filipino comrades, a Kitchener organizers view of the role of women in the post revolutionary society and modern struggles and myself on the role of national minorities in the Soviet Union and Irish Republicanism as well as mass ILPS organizers.

The conference then lead workshops The 32CSM was presenting in the workshop about International Solidarity. This workshop was also lead by our Haitian and Filipino comrades. The line we pushed is that to be able to engage in international solidarity first you must have something to offer and this can only be achieved by building revolutionary organizations here that can actually fight not just for issues across the pond but issues here particularly those issues similar to the groups you are working with and find common ground through those issues to allow collaboration.

Kitchener also did a presentation on revolutionary justice and building community resistance. The Kitchener comrades presented on the work of The Alan Ryan Peoples Community Defense Brigade an organization engaged in community defense and support, Tent City and our current struggle for housing.

The event ended with proposals and discussion the issue of Tony Taylor and the Criagavon Two was presented and accepted to fight for there freedom.

The ILPS has over 300 member organizations across the world and this meeting is happening everywhere as we prepare for the centenary of the 1917 revolution.

A message of solidarity was sent from our comrades in Anti Internment Munster that will be posted.

with the purpose of chasing out the invaders
and creating society fit for humans

Speech at meeting of Anti Internment Occupied Canada from Anti Internment Munster in Montreal last week

Speech of Solidarity and Support to the new Anti Internment in Occupied Canada branch in Montreal. 27 May 2016

Comrades, friends and supporters. So great to have you all here today to spread the Anti Internment Movement and Struggle further afield in Occupied Canada and Occupied Quebec. It is such a high honour for Irish people and patriots to sing praises and address the noble and heroic people of Montreal who have risen numerous times against the same tyrant and invader as we have fought against and resisted for over 800 years now, infact 848 years this very year comrades. The Quebecois gallantly and heroically resisted and continue to resist Brit and Canadian settler and invader aggression and tyranny to this day. We in Ireland and you in Quebec along with the First Nations peoples and the largely forgotten Scottish Gaels of Nova Scotia are to this very day struggling and striving for language, political, national, human and civil rights for our respective peoples in Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Brittany, Cornwall, Isle of Mann, Galicia, Asturias, Quebec, Corsica, Catalonia, Basque and the illegally invaded lands and territories that make up Occupied Canada today. It is such an incredible honour to be addressing the very people the Quebecois and French Canadians in general who were the very people who took in countless thousands of Irish exiled orphans who survived the coffin ships during the Irish Holocaust of 1845-1851 inwhich the Brits wiped out over half the population of Ireland in a terrible and horrific genocide that they have the cheek to call a famine. A famine it was not comrades. They murdered 6.2 million Irish Gaels in an act of mass genocide and starvation. There are mass graves all across Ireland, Scotland, Wales, England and even parts of America and especially Occupied Canada to prove it comrades.

In Quebec that is where the gallant and blessed people the Quebecois and wider French Canada saved countless numbers of exiled Irish orphans from death and enslavement to imperial Anglo Canada by taking these children in and rearing them as their own kids. Saddly this heroic event is not more widely known and it should be comrades especially in Ireland, Quebec and Occupied Canada in general. The brave Quebecois families that took in the Irish children who survived the Holocaust at home in 1845-1851 even went so far as to learn to speak Gaelic and encouraged the children to keep and maintain their Gaelic names and language, and of course with both peoples being Catholic and anti British it helped alot too. Now today around 40% of Quebecois are of Irish blood or descend purely down to the rescue and adoption of Irish exiles fleeing and surviving the Irish Holocaust of 1845-1851. Now take that glorious example of human dignity with the actions of the puppet anglo government of Occupied Canada in remembrance of the Irish Holocaust. In the city of Toronto for example the exact location of a mass grave of Irish Holocaust victims that fled to Canada is part car park and part dog toilet or shitting area. This on the graves of unknown thousands of Irish Gaelic victims of genocide in a modern city of Toronto, Ontario in Occupied Canada. What a crime against the Irish and infact wider Gaelic and Celtic nations comrades. And the Anglo puppet government of Occupied Canada know this very well and continue to use this area as a dog pooping spot. This itself is a clear declaration of war upon the Irish Nation and Celtic people everywhere. So lets also remember and recognise that the original Irish Republican Army actually invaded and over ran what is now Occupied Canada invading from the US in 1866, 1867, 1871, 1875, 1878, 1881 and on til 1895. Historians of Occupied Canada have either played down or ignored and covered up the Irish invasions of Canada/Occupied Canada because it was on the soil of Occupied Canada between the 31 May and 2 June 1866 that the Irish Republican Army won 4 of Ireland’s greatest ever victories over the Brits at Fort Erie (31 June 1866), Ridgeway (2 June 1866), Limestone Ridge ( 2-3 June 1866) and Second Fort Erie (3 June 1866) in Ontario during the 1866 Irish invasion of Canada to sieze it from the Brits and declare an Irish Republic on occupied Brit imperial territory. Only very recently has any Canadian author or celebrity attempted to honestly explain the Irish invasions of Occupied Canada which is a crime in itself. This man’s name is Peter Vronsky in his 2011 book called Ridgeway: The American Fenian Invasion and the 1866 Battle that made Canada. While the title is incorrect as it was an Irish invasion and the fact that the book comes at it from a Canadian point of view it is unbiased and respectful towards the very much mocked and malligned Irish invasion plans and actions.

All of this is no surprise to us comrades when you take into account the lies and cover up around the actual flag and symbols of the Anglo puppet regime of Occupied Canada. Just look at that symbol of the Orange Order in Occupied Canada the Maple Leaf. It is on the flag of the country that was illegally brought into being. The real flag of Canada was the flag of the Patriotes in the war of 1837-1842 or the Patriote Wars which were the long Tricolour of Green, White and Red and sometimes along with a gold star symbolising independence. The green of course stood for the Irish, White for hte French and red for the English of Canada. The Republic they declared and established was led by a Scottish Gaelic exile whose parents had fought for freedom and liberty in Scotland and who were forced to flee in the aftermath of defeat just like many countless thousands of rebel Scots after the Jacobite War or Fifth Jacobite War of 1745-1746 or 1759. William Lyon Mac Kenzie was a true freedom fighter and Patriote and lover of all freedom loving nations no matter where they came from. Today other Gaels in Nova Scotia fight and struggle very hard against great ignorance and discrimination for equal language rights for their beloved Gaelic language which is itself a unique dialect of the Gaelic language called Canadian Gaelic and it is infact a more ancient and purer form of Gaelic than that spoken today in the Gaelic lands of Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Mann.

And today the Gaels of Nova Scotia are suffered vicious and uncalled for persecution and discrimination of their native language and the language that their exiled ancestors brought with them as they too fled genocide and near extinction as a people in the aftermath of the 1745-1746 and 1759-1760 wars in Scotland which tired and failed to restore Scottish national independence from Brit rule. The regime in Occupied Canada first went after the Gaelic language of Nova Scotia from the early 1900s to the 1970s when they thought they had wiped it out. This vicious persecution and war against a language almost succeeded and it was waged purely because the puppet regime in Ottawa feared the Gaelic languages as they believed them to foster rebellion against the Brit crown and hatred of Brit rule. But thankfully today there are those in Nova Scotia fighting to revive and return the Gaelic language to its proper place in Nova Scotia. Just imagine comrades there were 2.5 million Gaelic speakers in Nova Scotia alone in 1901 and it was almost at nothing by the 1970s, but now it is just over the 2,000 mark and steadily rising.

Let us remember the great rising or war waged by the FLQ for the liberation and independence of Quebec from 1963-1976 comrades, and the fierce and bitter fighting and struggle that started and revived French language and culture in Quebec as a result and especially in your great and glorious city of Montreal which saw much if not most of the fighting between Patriotes and Canadian invaders and occupiers. It was truly a great war that almost was won but for unforseen actions of the collaborators who only spoke and speak French when it suits or benefits them

So comrades let us all arise across Occupied Canada and rebel and resist the colonial forces and puppet regimes and reestablish the independence of the First Nations and let you all arise or rise up in Quebec and declare independence from the Brits again comrades. What is the worst they can do today? We in Ireland as always will be behind you and beside you in any coming fight or struggle that you wage for your freedom. Vive Quebec, vive Montreal, vive libre.
