Most Canadians first heard about the case of Abousfian Abdelrazik last year when a federal court judge ordered the Canadian government to allow him to return home from six years of exile in the Sudan.
What most people don't know is that his story shows alarming parallels to that of Maher Arar. Nor do Canadians know that following his return to Canada, he is still unable to work, use a bank account or travel abroad.
Abousfian Abdelrazik and Mary Foster of Project Fly Home have just completed a cross-country tour raising awareness about his current predicament and the complicity of CSIS and the Canadian government in his arrest and torture in Sudan. They spoke November 23 in Vancouver.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
