James Loney is a member of Christian Peacemaker Teams and a former hostage in Iraq. He spoke at the Day of Action in suppor of U.S. Iraq War resisters on Saturday in Toronto organized by the War Resisters Support Campaign.
“We have been possessed by the demon of war,” says Loney. “We are spending up to a trillion and a half dollars every year on weapons, on death, on occupation, on blood. We have to stop this.”

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.
