I’ve been thinking about October 15th, the one-year anniversary for Canadian occupations. What were people thinking back when it happened, how do those from the outside view it now?
So, while searching for some things today, I came across this comment from an article on the Georgia Strait from October 7th. The article is about the launch of Occupy Vancouver- this guy’s comment is a classic.
An interesting fact about Ali Yerevani, according to this link here, he was a:
“Witness, participant and political organizer in the Iranian Revolution.”
Canada cancelled diplomatic relations with Iran recently- we called them a terrorist threat. I’m betting people like Yerevani are going to be under a lot of scrutiny in the near future. There are a lot of people in the activist community who have allied with Iranian revolutionaries- I wonder if they are getting nervous right now?
Oh, and this comment from another site is priceless!
