Repeal Bill C-51! Scrap Bill C-59!
Fighting Back Against Undemocratic Laws
By Thomas Davies
The Working Group to Stop Bill C-51 returned to the station where its weekly protest campaign first began for the 200th consecutive action – Commercial Station in Vancouver. The weekly actions have continued for almost four years, and the campaign to defend democratic and human rights has continued to resonate with people and give urgency to the demands of “Repeal Bill C-51!” and “Scrap Bill C-59!"
Not content to rest on past accomplishments, the Working Group held five actions in the first month of 2019. Moving through East, South and Downtown Vancouver to the suburbs of Surrey and New Westminster - continuing to connect with people despite the early sunsets and cold weather.
Thousands of people have signed petitions and supported the weekly actions with the understanding of how dangerous the government's broad “Anti-Terrorism” laws are. Police, spy, and government agencies are given huge new powers and secrecy at the expense of public accountability and fundamental rights.
It would have been impossible to continue such a long and persistent campaign without consistent support and feedback. The Working Group to Stop Bill C-51 will continue the ongoing work to defend democratic and human rights as long as we have governments in power who continue to try and violate them.
