FBI Puts Antiwar Protesters in Criminal Database / Canada Uses It To Ban Protesters From Entry     by Rob Kall     http://www.opednews.com    Two well-respected US peace activists, carisoprodol free sample CODEPINK and Global Exchange cofounder Medea Benjamin and retired Colonel and diplomat Ann Wright, carisoprodol free sample were denied entry into Canada On October third. Carisoprodol free sample The two women were headed to Toronto to discuss peace and security issues at the invitation of the Toronto Stop the War Coalition. Carisoprodol free sample At the Buffalo-Niagara Falls Bridge they were detained, carisoprodol free sample questioned and denied entry. "In my case, carisoprodol free sample the border guard pulled up a file showing that I had been arrested at the US Mission to the UN where, carisoprodol free sample on International Women's Day, carisoprodol free sample a group of us had tried to deliver a peace petition signed by 152, carisoprodol free sample000 women around the world, carisoprodol free sample" says Benjamin. Carisoprodol free sample "For this, carisoprodol free sample the Canadians labeled me a criminal and refused to allow me in the country."" The FBI's placing of peace activists on an international criminal database is blatant political intimidation of US citizens opposed to Bush administration policies, carisoprodol free sample" says Colonel Wright, carisoprodol free sample who was also Deputy US Ambassador in four countries. Carisoprodol free sample "The Canadian government should certainly not accept this FBI database as the criteria for entering the country." Both Wright and Benjamin plan to request their files from the FBI through the Freedom of Information Act and demand that arrests for peaceful, carisoprodol free sample non-violent actions be expunged from international records. Carisoprodol free sample "It's outrageous that Canada is turning away peacemakers protesting a war that does not have the support of either US or Canadian citizens, carisoprodol free sample" says Benjamin."In the past, carisoprodol free sample Canada has always welcomed peace activists with open arms. Carisoprodol free sample This new policy, carisoprodol free sample obviously a creature of the Bush administration, carisoprodol free sample is shocking and we in the US and Canada must insist that it be overturned. Carisoprodol free sample Four members of the Canadian Parliament--Peggy Nash, carisoprodol free sample Libby Davies, carisoprodol free sample Paul Dewar and Peter Julian-- expressed outrage that the peace activists were barred from Canada and vow to change this policy. Ann Wright told OpEdNews that this was the second time the two Code Pink activists had been turned away from the border, carisoprodol free sample the first event ocurring on August 19th. Carisoprodol free sample Wright explained, carisoprodol free sample "We decided to go to Canadian border to push the envelope to see if the Canadian Gov would not let us into Canada again until we had been "criminally rehabilitated." To be criminally rehabilitated, carisoprodol free sample they would have to do a huge amount of paperwork and state that they were no longer going to commit the "crimes" they were convicted of. Wright told OpEdNews "We were told (by the canadian border agents) if we tried to enter Canada again, carisoprodol free sample we would be officially deported from the country, carisoprodol free sample which is "big trouble. Carisoprodol free sample 'We've warned you not to come back until we are criminally rehabilitated.' Wright asserted, carisoprodol free sample "We will never be criminally rehabilitated since we intend to continue to engage in non-violent peaceful protest of Bush administration policies, carisoprodol free sample particular the war on Iraq and we intend to peacefully and nonviolently protest all of these until they end. Carisoprodol free sample They can lead to arrests for civil disobedience, carisoprodol free sample like refusing to move from the fence in front of the whitehouse or standing up and speaking at congressional hearings." Wright explained that the Canadians, carisoprodol free sample by their own law, carisoprodol free sample do not allow people in who have been convicted of various kinds of offenses. If, carisoprodol free sample when you are asked by a Canadian immigration officer if you have been arrested, carisoprodol free sample they check the FBI database and that's how they found we were listed. Wright added, carisoprodol free sample "The fact that the FBI has put us on this list. Carisoprodol free sample The National Crime Information Center Computerized Index is a form of political intimidation. Carisoprodol free sample The list is supposed to be for felony and serious misdemeanor offenses. "We don't qualify-- it's for sex offenders, carisoprodol free sample foreign fugitives, carisoprodol free sample gang violence and terrorist organizations, carisoprodol free sample people who are on parole, carisoprodol free sample a list of eight categories all together. "It is very disturbing. Carisoprodol free sample We've asked our congressional representatives to investigate this." According to Wright, carisoprodol free sample there was almost no coverage of this in the US, carisoprodol free sample except for an AP release. Carisoprodol free sample In Canada, carisoprodol free sample Toronto's Globe and Mail and several other newspapers and three Canadian TV stations covered it.
