Working Group to Stop Bill C-51 continues Weekly Action Campaign
By Thomas Davies
As the long hot July days continued, the Working Group to Stop Bill C-51 kept very active with five weekly
actions during the month. Now up to 178 consecutive weeks, the Working Group spread out to new locations
for banner drops and pickets in Surrey and Coquitlam, before returning to some familiar favourite locations in
Vancouver and Burnaby.
Despite the over two year long campaign, and now an almost total media blackout, the public response
continues to be overwhelmingly positive to the demands, “Repeal Bill C-51!” and “Scrap Bill C-59!” As Prime
Minister, both Harper and Trudeau justified their “Anti-Terrorism” laws by telling the public just to trust them
not to abuse their increased powers to target, spy on and detain people. It is
very obvious that neither of them were able to build that trust.
Bill C-51, with all of its human right violations, remains the law of the land in Canada. Trudeau’s Bill C-59, with all
of its lacklustre adjustments, remains stalled in its second reading at the Senate. The fight to defend and extend
human rights in Canada continues. The Working Group to Stop Bill C-51 will continue to do everything possible
to build the campaign to defeat these unjust laws.
REPEAL BILL C-51!
SCRAP BILL C-59!
OUR SECURITY LIES IN DEFENDING THE RIGHTS OF ALL!
