Supporters of Justice for Omar Khadr

Letter Writing Campaign | Justice For Omar Khadr – Your Support Needed!

Dear Supporters of Justice for Omar Khadr,

As you are aware Omar has endured years of suffering and abuse due to the Canadian government’s refusal to award protection guaranteed by the Charter of Rights and international conventions.

In 2004 a civil claim was filed against the Canadian government seeking compensation for the violations of Omar’s fundamental rights, including the participation of Canadian officials in his torture and abuse in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Over the past 13 years the Canadian government has persistently fought Omar’s legal team at every level of court, all at the tax payers expense; only to lose each and every time. It is time for this government to be accountable for its actions.

History tells us that: “Some cases enshrine the defining moments of their time. Omar Khadr’s case is one. Future generations will rightly judge our shocking dereliction of responsibility in this matter and our collective failure to extend justice and humanity”. – Constance Backhouse, Distinguished Professor of Law.

Urgent action is required to settle the civil suit. Please use the template letter provided here [PDF and Word format], or choose your own message to write (no postage required), email or fax Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Minister of Justice Jodi Wilson-Raybould and your Member of Parliament. Encourage them to provide a positive and immediate resolution for Omar. (See contact information following the letter.)
Thank you,
The Free Omar Campaign
