Dec. 10 will mark the 9th anniversary of Mohamed Harkat's arrest under a so-called security certificate. Nine years of arbitrary and indefinite detention, secret evidence, baseless public allegations and threat of deportation to torture (refoulement) under an unconstitutional law. It's also International Human Rights Day, the 63rd anniversary of the day that the UN endorsed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, many of whose principles are volated by the security certificate process.
The Harkat committee asks all of its supporters to come out to show their continued solidarity with Mohamed Harkat and their strong opposition to security certificates and all the injustices they represent.
Also, please do sign and forward the Statement against Security Certificates.

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, while striving to make it sustainable as well. 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 main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
