Stop Secret Trials in Canada, October 10-11, Ottawa
Information on Events, How to Get Involved Below!
For the third time since 2006, a challenge to Canada's secret trial "security certificates" is being heard at the Supreme Court.
But in an alarming move, the Supreme Court of Canada, after a public hearing on Thursday, October 10, will conduct a completely secret hearing in an undisclosed location, and the secret trial detainee launching the challenge, Mohamed Harkat – along with his lawyers, supporters, the media, and the general public – will be shut out from the process.
Join us in Ottawa to attend the public hearing, protest the secret hearing, and explore the many ways this Kafkaesque process reflects Kafka's The Trial!
