We are honored to have received a statement of support from Professor Noam Chomsky. Professor Chomsky is widely recognized as one of the most influential figures and most important public intellectuals of our times.
It is with great pleasure that we share his voice of support in which he underlines the importance of justice for Omar.
“The imprisonment and shocking treatment of Omar Khadr has been a scandal from the first moment, running right through the disgraceful trial and his subsequent detention. The crime should be ended at once, with sincere apology and compensation. I hope someone is compiling a full record of this story, not only out of respect for Omar, but also to reveal the utter savagery of our culture, both the monstrous acts of the USG and the craven cowardice of Canada – and the fact that so few cared.”
We thank Professor Chomsky for his support. We hope he inspires you to sign our petition.
