This just arrived from Pasifik.ca, which produced the Our Way to Fight video that Shaw TV banned as “too unbalanced and controversial”:
“Hello friends and supporters of Pasifik.ca,
The general manager of Shaw TV Vancouver just called us to say that Shaw TV will be playing “Our Way To Fight” this coming weekend.
Many thanks for all the letters of support for justice and peace in this latest struggle between this Pasifik.ca program and the community channel management.
Thanking you for your expression of solidarity,
for Pasifik.ca volunteers”
I add my thanks to theirs. I have no illusions about how small this victory was on the scale of things, nor how many more battles like this we’ll have to fight.
On the other hand, I have an doubts as to how crucial each of these small victories is in the big picture.
Also, I have to say: Shaw TV’s foolishness generated more publicity for the book than the small publishers who put it out could ever have bought! But that too was entirely due to the quick response of many good people in several countries. Shukran, toda, thank you.
This is what I call Our Way to Fight.
