You Should Know About “A.R.A.” (Anti-Racist Action)
Apparently, without an in-depth investigation, the Board
of Education has decided to permit the facilities of Harbord Collegiate
to be used by a radical leftist organization calling itself “Anti-Racist
Action.” A check with the Intelligence Bureau of the Metropolitan Toronto
Police would have verified some rather disturbing facts:
- In January, 1993, hundreds of these leftists, their faces
covered with ski masks, attacked mounted police and their horses, pelting
them with eggs, rocks and wooden sticks.
- In June 1993, over 200 terrorists, their faces covered
with ski masks and proudly waving ARA banners attacked and vandalized the
home of a political opponent in east end Toronto, smashing windows, throwing
paint, cherry bombs, human excrement, and even a child’s tricycle through
a broken window.
- In December 1995, about two dozen ARA supporters broke
into a private meeting being held at the Europe Restaurant on Bloor Street,
throwing milk on items on a book table, spitting on attendees, and physically
assaulting an elderly woman. They ignored the owner’s requests to leave,
and only vacated the premises when the police were called.
- ARA supporters have repeatedly attacked the home of Toronto
publisher and artist, Ernst Zündel, again with paint bombs, rocks,
eggs and human excrement.
- ARA posters advocating arson and violence, and threatening
death to their opposition are visible throughout the city, plastered on
newspaper boxes, bus shelters and mailboxes. Although it has never been
proven that ARA are directly responsible for the arson attack on Ernst
Zündel’s premises, ARA posters have at the very least, definitely
advocated the making and use of Molotov cocktails.
- When Metro Police Constable Todd Baylis was murdered
two summers ago, ARA activists on their Upper Cut radio show on CIUT, wildly
applauded his murder, clapping and cheering this “victory” over “social
injustice” and oppression.” And to underscore their enthusiasm, they immediately
played the rap “song” Cop Killer.
- ARA activists have repeatedly harassed intimidated and
attacked — even stabbed — their perceived opponents on the streets of the
city and throughout the Toronto transit system, often attacking lone individuals
because they were wearing the wrong color shoelaces.
The activities of this violent neo-Marxist gang of hooligans have been
widely documented in numerous newspaper accounts, in both the Toronto Star
and the Toronto Sun. As well, their antics have been the subject of the
lead item featured on newscasts of every television station in the Metro
