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, generic ogden viagra CODEPINK and Global Exchange cofounder Medea Benjamin and retired Colonel and diplomat Ann Wright, generic ogden viagra were denied entry into Canada On October third. Generic ogden viagra The two women were headed to Toronto to discuss peace and security issues at the invitation of the Toronto Stop the War Coalition. Generic ogden viagra At the Buffalo-Niagara Falls Bridge they were detained, generic ogden viagra questioned and denied entry. "In my case, generic ogden viagra the border guard pulled up a file showing that I had been arrested at the US Mission to the UN where, generic ogden viagra on International Women's Day, generic ogden viagra a group of us had tried to deliver a peace petition signed by 152, generic ogden viagra000 women around the world, generic ogden viagra" says Benjamin. Generic ogden viagra "For this, generic ogden viagra 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, generic ogden viagra" says Colonel Wright, generic ogden viagra who was also Deputy US Ambassador in four countries. Generic ogden viagra "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, generic ogden viagra non-violent actions be expunged from international records. Generic ogden viagra "It's outrageous that Canada is turning away peacemakers protesting a war that does not have the support of either US or Canadian citizens, generic ogden viagra" says Benjamin."In the past, generic ogden viagra Canada has always welcomed peace activists with open arms. Generic ogden viagra This new policy, generic ogden viagra obviously a creature of the Bush administration, generic ogden viagra is shocking and we in the US and Canada must insist that it be overturned. Generic ogden viagra Four members of the Canadian Parliament--Peggy Nash, generic ogden viagra Libby Davies, generic ogden viagra 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, generic ogden viagra the first event ocurring on August 19th. Generic ogden viagra Wright explained, generic ogden viagra "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, generic ogden viagra 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, generic ogden viagra we would be officially deported from the country, generic ogden viagra which is "big trouble. Generic ogden viagra 'We've warned you not to come back until we are criminally rehabilitated.' Wright asserted, generic ogden viagra "We will never be criminally rehabilitated since we intend to continue to engage in non-violent peaceful protest of Bush administration policies, generic ogden viagra particular the war on Iraq and we intend to peacefully and nonviolently protest all of these until they end. Generic ogden viagra They can lead to arrests for civil disobedience, generic ogden viagra 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, generic ogden viagra by their own law, generic ogden viagra do not allow people in who have been convicted of various kinds of offenses. If, generic ogden viagra when you are asked by a Canadian immigration officer if you have been arrested, generic ogden viagra they check the FBI database and that's how they found we were listed. Wright added, generic ogden viagra "The fact that the FBI has put us on this list. Generic ogden viagra The National Crime Information Center Computerized Index is a form of political intimidation. Generic ogden viagra The list is supposed to be for felony and serious misdemeanor offenses. "We don't qualify-- it's for sex offenders, generic ogden viagra foreign fugitives, generic ogden viagra gang violence and terrorist organizations, generic ogden viagra people who are on parole, generic ogden viagra a list of eight categories all together. "It is very disturbing. Generic ogden viagra We've asked our congressional representatives to investigate this." According to Wright, generic ogden viagra there was almost no coverage of this in the US, generic ogden viagra except for an AP release. Generic ogden viagra In Canada, generic ogden viagra Toronto's Globe and Mail and several other newspapers and three Canadian TV stations covered it.
