Inside the black bloc militant protest movement as it rises up against Trump

Scorned by critics on both the left and right and hunted by police, the black bloc is bringing its radical tactics to the massive protest movement sparked by the presidency of Donald Trump.

Yes, Canada’s anti-Islamophobia motion poses a problem

There are two fundamental problems with Liberal MP Iqra Khalid’s Motion 103 calling on the federal government to battle Islamophobia that will likely come up for debate in the House of Commons this coming week.
