OTTAWA – More than 200 federal civil servants involved in replacing Canada’s aging fighter jet fleet have been forced to swear they will not discuss the project for the rest of their lives.
Revelations of the “lifetime” non-disclosure agreements come as the government prepares to start negotiations with U.S. aerospace giant Boeing to purchase 18 Super Hornets.

why might a lifetime gag order be a health issue for Canadian officials who are writing and imposing the order?


What is a gag order?

When can you break a gag order?


Whose human rights are being violated here?  The Canadian publics right to have a far and frank discussion with each other about their past and future vision for the world. Everyone has agreed that Canada will have to pay for some of the weapons of mass destruction.

Sins Invalid

Sins Invalid recognizes that we will be liberated as whole beings—as disabled, as queer, as brown, as black, as gender non-conforming, as trans, as women, as men, as non-binary gendered— we are far greater whole than partitioned. We recognize that our allies emerge from many communities and that demographic identity alone does not determine one’s commitment to liberation.

This well articulates the brutal, genocidal history of Congo and King Leopold’s rule where he Kill Ten Million Africans and he and his enslavment of the people of Congo isn’t talked about in American schools where he isn’t lined up with the likes of ‘Hitler’. But Leopold’s –Belgum’s reign is still a part of the reality of the military industrial medical capitalist theft of African wellbeing and thriving lives. The article unpacks how education in America is in effect seeking a different goal than education. For starters, “Mark Twain wrote a satire about Leopold called “King Leopold’s soliloquy; a defense of his Congo rule“, where he mocked the King’s defense of his reign of terror, largely through Leopold’s own words. It’s 49 pages long. Mark Twain is a popular author for American public schools. But like most political authors, we will often read some of their least political writings or read them without learning why the author wrote them (Orwell’s Animal Farm for example serves to re-inforce American anti-Socialist propaganda, but Orwell was an anti-capitalist revolutionary of a different kind – this is never pointed out). We can read about Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer, but King Leopold’s Soliloquy isn’t on the reading list. This isn’t by accident. Reading lists are created by boards of education in order to prepare students to follow orders and endure boredom well. From the point of view of the Education Department, Africans have no history.”
