Stephen Harper and Crimes Against Democracy

I think that the media has underestimated the power of this grassroots movement. Rabble, that enjoys the support of some of the most progressive Canadian thinkers, has posted on the subject.

They are also providing posters that you can download for free. They can be tacked up around your community or glued to a sign.

Don't you just love being Canadian? We so totally rock.

Stephen Harper: Wanted, for crimes against democracy (includes WANTED poster download!)
By rabble staff
January 20, 2010

No Prime Minister in the history of Canada has demonstrated such contempt for democracy and its institutions as Stephen Harper.

The list is shockingly long –- proroguing Parliament twice for strictly partisan reasons, interfering with and slashing the budgets of numerous Parliamentary watch dog agencies, abandoning Canadian citizens in jails overseas whole ignoring court orders to repatriate them, producing a guide for Conservative chairs of Parliamentary Committees to help them thwart the opposition, abusing their power by cutting funding to groups they don’t like, breaking their own fixed election law, the list goes on and on.

Rabble is of the conviction that Stephen Harper has demonstrated such open contempt for Canadians, Parliament, the media and the whole concept of democratic governance itself that he is unfit to govern.

We should therefore treat Stephen Harper as a man guilty of crimes against democracy.

In recognition of this criminal behaviour, we urge you to download and post this WANTED poster in your city and neighbourhood. Click here to download.

The poster is formatted to be printed on 11X17 paper, in black and white (at this size it also works well rally placards...). Note that you can adjust your printer settings to also print it on 8 1/2 X 11 paper, or other sizes.

Please distribute widely.
