Dean Walcott Vigil & Hearing, August 19

I was checking my calendar and noticed that War Resister, Dean Walcott, has a hearing scheduled for next Wednesday and there will be a vigil outside the Federal Court at 8am.

Dean Walcott Vigil
Wednesday, August 19, 2009
Federal Court Building
180 Queen St. West
(west of University Ave, Osgoode subway)
The Federal Court will hear an appeal by Iraq war resister Dean Walcott. Dean, a former U.S. Marine who served two tours of duty in Iraq, is appealing the negative decisions on his Pre-Removal Risk Assessment and his request to be allowed to stay in Canada on Humanitarian and Compassionate grounds.

Join a vigil to support Dean Walcott and to demand that the Harper government respect Canadian democracy and the will of the Canadian people. It is time to let the war resisters stay!
