Year before last a group of South African Black brought their case of discrimination again U.S. companies that colluded with the South African apartheid regime and upheld all sections of the apartheid laws. The Manhattan District Court of New York found them guilty and fined them millions of dollars for their actions which were found to violate the U.N. Declaration of Universal Human Rights?
It all resulted from the Canadian government's demand that Sanctions be placed on the Republic of South Africa for its breach of Human Rights by the institution of its apartheid laws.
Since, the precedent is already set in the case of South African apartheid, we now have the opportunity to raise the issue of the Province of Kebec's laws which go well beyond those of yesterday's Apartheid ridden South Africa. It appears that the only way to deal with premier Pauline Marois's laws which violate human rights on the level of race, religion and language can be dealt with in a similar venue to the Manhattan District of New York, USA, since many of the Corporations involved are American. There is every chance that if we could get a pro bono lawyer in the U.S. to take on a case of Kebec vs the minorities, we could obtain our due rights and receive compensation as did those Africans who fought and won their case against the U.S. Corporations that supported Apartheid in the South Africa.
Perhaps it is time to take the same approach as those Africans did, and get some results and long overdue compensation. That to me is the only solution, and one that would put the Kebek government on trial on the world stage. So what say we give it a shot, because we have nothing to lose whatsoever.
We have nothing to lose but the chains that hold us in bondage.
