Smoke Out America rally for Marc Emery

Protest
Organizer/Author:

On July 29th, 2005, the Vancouver Police Department and RCMP executed a warrant from the United States Drug Enforcement Administration, raiding the B.C. Marijuana Party Headquarters in Vancouver and arresting party president Marc Emery in Halifax.

Two of Marc’s associates, Greg Williams and Michelle Rainey, were also arrested.

The United States is attempting to extradite all three to face life in U.S. prison for selling cannabis seeds, a practice that has been openly tolerated by Canadian authorities and the Canadian people for a decade.

On September 10th, people in cities in Canada, the United States, and across the globe are uniting in protest against this alarming infringement on
Canadian sovereignty and unprecedented escalation
by the Bush administration of the failed War on Drugs.

The Canadian government must abide by the Extradition Act of Canada and refuse the extradition of Marc, Greg, and Michelle.
