Evening with Scottish M.P. George Galloway – Jan. 12, 2011

On January 12th Awareness Film Night will present an hour with George Galloway. An outspoken, anti-elitist Scottish M.P. for 25 years, George Galloway is a galvanizing speaker who recently completed a cross Canada tour in which he spoke of many things, wars and (would be) kings and the state of the Canadian government and its new image around the world. Galloway joined the Labour Party in Scotland at the age of 13 and was a Labour M.P. until 2003 when he was suspended by the party for his frank opposition to the invasion of Iraq. Galloway’s initial attempt at a speaking tour of Canada in the Spring of 2009 was aborted when he was deemed admissible to Canada on “security grounds”, being called a “street corner Cromwell” by the communication director of Minister of Immigration Jason Kenney. The matter eventually went to Federal Court where a judge, in a 60-page ruling, slammed the Canadian government for wrongly banning Galloway for political reasons.

This a spellbinding film of George Galloway’s sold-out, no words minced talk in Vancouver in November that naturally serves to uproot complacency and stir up the dreary month of January.

The film will be shown at 7 p.m. at the Edward Milne Community School theatre. Admission is by donation.
