Punishing Bad Thoughts: Next Generation Canadian State Repression

[as appeared in the first issue of the Red Sparks Union newsletter: http://redsparks.org/newsletter1 ]

The apparently random killings of two Canadian Forces personnel, October 20 near Montreal and October 22 in Ottawa, have served, not surprisingly as great mechanisms for reactionary political opportunism. The ruling Conservative Party of Canada, and allied pundits in the corporate media, wasted no time in using the Ottawa shooting in particular as an opportunity to ratchet up social phobias and fear politics, focused once again on that malleable and opportune figure of “the terrorist/terrorism” as means to advance the repressive agendas that are always central to their political projects.

Racial Profiling and Borders: International, Interdisciplinary Perspectives

See it at Vandeplas Publishing.

[Cover IMG: "Racial Profiling and Borders: International Interdisciplinary Perspectives"] Racial profiling and border security have become characteristic features of governance in Western liberal democracies during the twenty-first century. This new collection provides an important multi-national perspective on an issue of great and growing concern, particularly but not exclusively in the context of corporate globalization and neo-liberal governance.

Despite the growing significance of regimes of racial profiling, surveillance and tightened border controls in the post-9/11 period, there have been very few extended analyses of racial profiling in different eras and contexts, particularly at borders.
