At approximately 3:00pm on Saturday May 27th, three immigrants rights protesters and one independent journalist were arrested at a peaceful demonstration on Queen Street in Fredericton. Asaf Rashid, Chris Erb, Duane Rouselle, and Theresa Taylor were all arrested for “failure to disperse”. One independent media journalist was arrested with video and photos of the days events. There are reports of excessive force being used on the arrestees.
The detainees have just been released (3:40pm) with minor fines and with one person experiencing minor injuries. The camera was recovered. When asked to give a reason for the arrest, one officer responded “Do you think I need a reason?” Officers refused to give badge numbers or reveal their identities. None of the arrestees were read their rights. Rashid was struck in his ribs, thrown to the ground and hand cuffed and then “slapped on his ass”, recounts one witness. “Next time I ask you to leave you better fucking leave”, said one officer. After being thrown into the police van all arrestees were taken to the police station. Rashid was interrogated about the event and his nationality. Others were asked standard questions for the purpose of writing up the fine.
The rally began at 1:00pm at Queen’s Square Park where 30 plus protesters enjoyed free food, soccer, Frisbee and speeches from refugees, organizers and activists. Protesters marched from Queen’s Square park to City Hall whilst being harassed by police along the way. Once at City Hall protesters were harassed by one of the Commissionaires, ranting about tourists, who then contacted police. "I get paid to keep people like you away from city hall for the tourists." The unidentified Commissionaire was very persistent with convincing the police to break up the rally.
After much discussion with the commissionaire police approached the crowd and demanded they disperse. Protesters explained to police that they were preparing to disperse. Once questioned about the validity of the command to disperse by one independent media journalist protesters were unlawfully arrested without having their rights read to them.
Photos of the event will follow soon. For more information about the event or Solidarity Across Borders please contact www.solidaityacrossborders.org or firstname.lastname@example.org

While walking downtown yesterday, I noticed people gathered outside of the Justice Building.
In the past, you would see criminals being escorted from the building but this time it was a little different.
It was a young couple getting ready to be married. I must say that it's much cheaper this way I guess......
These are the same people who told the Government that people with ADHD should be paid a lower pay wage doing the same amount of work.
Landlords??? Next month they will announce that the poor of this province must be treated like animal!!! This will mean that they shouldn't complain to the Fire Marshall or if there's a fire Hazard?
They cannot complain because they will be evicted!!!
Lets not forgot being force to sh#t in a garbage bag!
The poor will be deny the rights to shower or use the washroom!
One thing is certain? I'll find out where the ceremony will be held and the Commission have no rights whatsoever to be there.
Human Rights in New Brunswick don’t exist!!!

Disability Awareness Week (06/05/25)
May 25, 2006
FREDERICTON (CNB) - New Brunswick Human Rights Commission chair Gordon Porter issued this statement to mark Disability Awareness Week, May 28 - June 3:
"New Brunswickers who have a disability can enjoy full equality only when employers, landlords and service providers understand that it is not enough to treat everybody exactly the same if the end result nevertheless is that persons with disabilities are excluded or disadvantaged.
"Under the Human Rights Act, employers, landlords and service providers have a legal duty to eliminate the discriminatory effect of policies, practices, facilities and equipment if they can do so without undergoing undue hardship or sacrificing their legitimate objectives.
"For example, employers may need to modify job duties or provide specialized equipment so that an employee with a disability can stay on the job or return to work. Similarly, educational institutions need to provide the necessary staff and programs so that students with a physical or mental disability have equal access to educational opportunities.
"Discrimination complaints based on disability are the most common types of complaints received by human rights commissions today. That is why accommodation of disability is one of the key themes of the Canadian Association of Statutory Human Rights Agencies (CASHRA) 2006 national human rights conference that the New Brunswick Human Rights Commission and the Atlantic Human Rights Centre are hosting in Fredericton next month.
"Some of the top experts in Canada will be addressing accommodation of disability during the conference on June 15 and 16, as well as at a one-day practical workshop on June 14.
"I would like to invite the public to attend the conference and workshop. Complete information may be found at the CASHRA website.
"It is important to note that accommodation is not just a legal responsibility; it also makes good business sense. Studies have shown that accommodating people with disabilities benefits businesses through reduced turnover, recruitment and training costs, improved morale and an expanded recruitment pool. Most employers find accommodation is easy and inexpensive.
"The big picture is that people with disabilities have a lot to contribute to business and to society in general, and we cannot afford to let their contribution go to waste.
"During Disability Awareness Week, I invite New Brunswickers to consider what we can do to remove the barriers that people with disabilities face so that they can put their abilities to work."

Saint John prides itself to be the Port City. UGH!!!! Look at the mess of the City's Wharf? Our tourists must believe they landed in a third world country. If the City cannot find the money to fix the problem? Give it to the Irvings? They cannot do worst? It’s nice to have a nice walking trail on the harbour but this very ugly site tales all the beauty away!
PRECIOUS IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD IS THE DEATH
OF HIS SAINTS.
( PSALM 116:5 *NKJV )
We all experience the death of our loved one's while we
are here on Earth. Therefore we may take comfort in
knowing that they are now with God. For it is written that
when we die; THE DUST RETURNS TO THE GROUND IT
CAME FROM, AND THE SPIRIT RETURNS TO GOD WHO
GAVE IT. ( ECCLESIASTES 12:7 )
So Charles, take comfort in knowing you will see them
again, for it isn't the end of them but only the beginning!
The beginning of a much better life where; HE WILL WIPE
AWAY EVERY TEAR FROM THEIR EYES. THERE WILL
BE NO MORE DEATH OR MOURNING OR CRYING OR
PAIN, FOR THE OLD ORDER OF THINGS HAS PASSED
AWAY. ( REVELATION 21:4 )
Now if you have just experienced the loss of a loved one,
the following message is for you! It has Ministered to many
and I pray that it will help you as well. Further, if you haven't
experienced that loss, perhaps you know someone who has
and would appreciate receiving it. If so, please feel free to
share it with them!
So as we begin this Memorial Day weekend, a time that
we honor those who have passed away, let us remember
that those who were saved are now,
I am home in Heaven, dear ones;
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.
All the pain and grief is over,
Every restless tossing passed;
I an now at peace forever,
Safely home in Heaven at last.
Did you wonder I so calmly
Trod the valley of the shade?
Oh! But Jesus' love illumined
Every dark and fearful glade.
And He came Himself to meet me
In that way so hard to tread;
And with Jesus' arm to lean on,
Could I have one doubt or dread?
Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still:
Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
Pray to trust our Father's Will.
There is work still waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now, while life remaineth,
You shall rest in Jesus' land.
When that work is all completed,
He will gently call you Home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you come!
With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
