BREAKING NEWS: Our speaker Hicham Yezza has been charged and sentenced to 9 months.

I have just received a call from his agent who has given me the small bit of information above. Of his nine month sentence they expect him to be incarcerated for 4 1/2.  The charge is “securing avoidance of immigration control using deception” and comes under the Immigration Act.

This is an absolute outrage. What sort of civil liberties do we have when a well known activist and columnist is charged with this farce of an excuse? 

We would like to send a message of solidarity to him and thank him so much for going out of his way to find time for us for our conference.
