Harkat released!

Well, sort of. Mohamed Harkat was one of the 4 men held on so-called "Security Certificates." He has been held without charge--and without knowing the "evidence" against him---since 2002! Today, a federal court decided that he could be released on $35 000 bail. It is far from over for Mohamed: he will be under very strict house arrest while he awaits a decision about possible deportation and, obviously, June's scheduled Sup. Court session on security certificates (June 13-15).

Read more about Mohamed at Brian O'Connor's site. Brian has been absolutely fantastic on this issue. Please continue to support his efforts to abolish these "security" certificates: march on May 27th, sign the petition, and spread the word!
