Image: video still of Jim Manly

As Freedom Flotilla 3 sets sail, some video from the Canadian Boat to Gaza.

Jim Manly is a former Canadian MP and a retired United Church of Canada minister. He was a delegate on the Swedish Ship "Estelle" which attempted to break the blockade of Gaza in October 2012. 

In this video, he comments on the implications of the Memorandum of Understanding between Canada and Israel which says that targeting Israel for criticism is the face of the new anti-semitism. He also comments on Canada's proposed Bill C-51, which has now been passed by the Senate.

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.
