Help get justice for young African male in Calgary, suffering multiple attacks by police

Young adult African male unlawfully targeted and his life in danger after suffering multiple violent systemic attacks, false arrest/detainment at the hands of Calgary Police Service, AHS, and patrols. This young man's life is in danger as police block justice, infer 'African males are a safety concern to police'. Please help us get justice for this young man. DEMAND: CPS Chief Mark Neufeld investigated for oversight corruption and resign Calgary Police Commission be investigated for concealing /failure of oversight All CPS and patrol officers/law enforcement /those involved are investigated, charged, held responsible and or fired Alberta government /AHS involved or aware are fully investigated , held responsible for collaboration/failure to act/medical negligence/violation of policies On June 1st,2019 at Southwood Park in Calgary,Alberta, after advocating against the false attempted arrest of an Indigenous male who told CPS Officer Kevin Starblanket to stop arbitrarily disrupting a community sport event held for families/children, the unarmed African male was Taser chased to his face/grazed in the midst of families and children, bashed in the head to the ground, handcuffed face down, knelt on by CPS Officers Starblanket, James Moyen, Constable Husband while being knee-neck restrained, tied with ropes, throat choked, mouth gagged, then attempted to be dragged by a long rope to a police vehicle where he was taken to District 6 station. Later put out the back door, injured and traumatized. Young witnesses calling out the abuse were threatened to be shot, abused. A victim brutalized/young community traumatized. Scores of Officers /HAWKS police helicopter called on scene where no crime or danger occurred! A year later, in June 2020, suffering a flashback trauma from the above incident, requiring compassion care, unarmed, the African male was again re-attacked by CPS officers. The male then suffered medical negligence, cruel/inhumane treatment, and racism at the hands of AHS-EMS and emergency staff at South Campus Hospital in Calgary. Then on October 26, 2021 while at Calgary airport , the male is unlawfully and without consent stripped of his clothes, psychically searched in a 'private' room. He is attacked, battered, unlawfully handcuffed by CPS/ CBP/several officers, thrown into a cell and unlawfully detained, then later released.( when male asked reason for detainment, officers gave none)  This generational terrorizing and dehumanization is the system itself. It is the very structure of the Colonial system which was created to oppress, endanger and annihilate African lives . The real safety concern is for Black lives!!! Please sign the petition for the demands for justice!

Save HINDUS in Bangladesh

This is the biggest religious festival for Hindus in Bangladesh and was held from October 13 to 16 this year. The violence against the community continues to this day with more incidents being currently reported. A sample of media reports of incidents in this period is as under  CTV News says, [1] “six Hindus were killed in separate attacks”, “attackers torched the homes of Hindus in a fishing village on Sunday night. They also stole cash, cattle, and other valuables during the attack” The Guardian says [2] “About 10 Hindu temples and shrines were attacked”, “More than 80 … shrines were attacked”, “about 150 Hindus injured and two killed”. THIS PERSECUTION MUST END As Canada has a strong voice in the global human rights arena, through this petition, we request the Government of Canada to issue a statement strongly condemning the mindless violence and to take this matter up with the appropriate authorities in the Government of Bangladesh to ensure that the lives and livelihood of minorities are protected. We call on everyone to join hands and strengthen our petition. This petition, in unison, with other calls to action from all corners of the globe, will strengthen the appeal to the Government of Bangladesh to ensure the protection of HINDUS and conduct an impartial probe to bring the perpetrators to justice.  This petition also highlights the fact that religious discrimination has been present amongst certain sections of Bangladeshi society and that the continual protection of minorities is essential for their survival.  By supporting this petition, we also stand in solidarity with the victims of this violence in their time of grief and extend our support to them as they rebuild their lives.
