Abdelrazik Speaks For Justice

Delist and Desist! Stop Canadian Involvement in Torture.
Abousfian Abdelrazik Speaks in Toronto
With an Introduction by Dr. Sherene Razack

Abousfian Abdelrazik, like Abdullah Almalki, Ahmad El Maati, Muayyed Nureddin and Maher Arar, is another victim of a racist national security agenda that has gained so much ground in Canada over the past decade.

On the recommendation of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS), Abdelrazik was jailed and imprisoned while on a visit to Sudan in 2003. Never charged, Abdelrazik was beaten, threatened and tortured during two periods of detention. In this context, he was questioned by CSIS.

Prevented by the Canadian government from returning home to Canada, he went public with his story and took refuge in the Canadian Embassy in Khartoum, where he remained for more than one year.

It took a groundswell from people across Canada, as well legal action, to finally bring about his return and reunion with his children in Montreal on June 27, 2009.

If you cannot make it to the Toronto event, Mr. Abdelrazik is speaking in many
other parts of Canada. See his schedule at
