Amy Goodman speaks

This woman was stopped at the Canadian border. American citizens do not need a visa to visit Canada. But the people who guard our border to keep us safe detained her, questioned her, searched her papers and the computers she and her colleagues were carrying.

She had more important topics to speak about. Thanks to the Vancouver media co-op you can now see and hear her speech. This is what the Canadian government worries about you hearing. They insisted that she and her companions enter on a two day visa to ensure that they would know when she left.
