Here are the youtube links again as I entered the wrong code first time around. One is of the New Zealand Ploughshares group that deflated a spy dome with sickles and are currently awaiting trial. The second is a short video documenting Courage to Resist members who are doing jail time or have being punished for refusing to serve in Iraq.

Rallies have been held in major cities and towns across Canada over the weekend in support of American war resisters.

As many as 200 former United States military personnel are seeking refuge status in Canada.
One of the largest gatherings was in Toronto, were former draft dodger Lee Zaslofsky was among the marchers.

Mr Zaslofsky was one of the 50,000 Americans who came to Canada in 1970 to avoid the Vietnam war.

Mr Zaslofsky says US war resisters coming north today are even more courageous than those of his generation.

But he adds that they face an even more difficult experience in settling in Canada.

One resister was deported in July and another is scheduled to be sent back to the US next week.
In June, Canadian parliamentarians passed a non-binding motion to have war resisters accepted as permanent residents, a motion the Conservative Government chose to ignore.

Waihopai 3 to Face Court on Attack on Spy Base

The three activists who successfully deflated a dome covering a satelite at Waihopai spy base earlier this year appeared in the Blenheim (Aotearoa/ New Zealand) district court today for depositions. They were supported by a keen crowd of around thirty people who had come from all over the country to stand in solidarity with the actions of the ANZAC Ploughshares against militarism and government-led violence and terror.

The judge ruled that there was enough evidence to proceed to trial on the three charges that each of the defendants face - one of burglary and two of intentional damage. The defendants were not fazed and made it clear to the media that they do not regret their actions. Although they are only two humble gardeners and a friar, they will continue to resist war and violence and to stand on the side of the oppressed.

While the state is attempting to put these three activists on trial as regular criminals, the defendants themselves are intent on using their trial to bring the state to account for its complicity in war crimes and torture due to its participation in the signals intelligence spyďng network known as ECHELON. George Bush has often stated the important role that intelligence plays in the so-called War on Terror and by hosting what is effectively a US spy base on New Zealand soil and spending an estimated $500 million of tax payer money on it, we are all implicated.

Fairly straight forward evidence was presented by the prosecution as to the already well publicised entry and deflating of the spy dome by the defendants. It was presented by several of the officers involved on the day and one of the two night shift employees who discovered the security breach.

The defense noticed that the only person in the court room attempting to represent the GCSB (Government Communications Security Bureau) who operate the Waihopai spy base was the low level employee who found the activists at the dome. They attempted to object to the charges of burglary and intentional damage to the dome, since they claimed that there was no one present who could legally claim that their property had been damaged. The Judge denied their claim.

New Zealand artist Jeff Simmonds has released a CD to raise funds for the ANZAC Ploughshares, check it out on his website. Support T Shirts were also on sale at the depositions which you may be able to get hold of if you make contact through the Ploughshares website. Unfortunately, the sausage sizzle to raise funds for the reconstruction of Iraq fell short once again of the US$800 billion target.
