Terrorist lists and labeling are an ideological and political weapon of imperialism used to attack groups that resist colonization and occupation, particularly those struggling for national liberation and revolution. There are some groups on the list that are truly reprehensible. Part of the strategy of the Canadian State is to link revolutionary and resistance organizations with groups that are reactionary, chauvinistic and oppressive in order to confuse and disorient people.
It is the revolutionary, resistance and liberation movements that pose a profound challenge to imperialism and the interests of Canadian corporations that are really the target of this legislation. Therefore rather than engaging in a false argument about which organizations are and are not terrorist, our call is for the terrorist list to be scrapped!
