3. Communist Party holds rally to support Canada Post workers in Ottawa
Canada Post workers got a show of support Monday morning in Ottawa from an unusual source: communists.
About a dozen protesters were at a mail-processing plant near Terminal Avenue, with a barrel that had a fire lit inside and a red banner calling on workers to unite and strike down capitalism, colonialism and imperialism.
The protest was organized by the Revolutionary Communist Party Ottawa branch and the International Workers of the World, said protest spokesperson Alex Miller.
“We’re picketing the mail sorting facility in solidarity with the Canada Post workers who were legislated back to work. We want to show they are not on their own in this struggle, that we think they should not be forced to go to work when they are striking for better working conditions.”

8. “Burnt beyond recognition”: Extremist persecution of Christians, August 2018
Ethiopia: Approximately 15 Christian priests were killed—at least four burned alive—and 19 churches torched during Muslim uprisings in the east, where most of the nation's Muslim population, consisting of 33% of the population, is centered.
“Similar tensions are bubbling under the surface in other parts of Oromia,” which is approximately 50% Muslim, said a local source. “We have even heard of places where Muslims had asked Christians to vacate the area. And though this call is veiled as ethnic rivalry by some media and observers, it is at its very core a religious matter.”
Nigeria: During one of eight raids on Christian villages on August 28, Muslim Fulani herdsmen burned alive a Christian pastor, his wife, and three young children in their home; two other non-relatives were also killed in the raids. Armed with machetes and AK47 rifles, the Islamic raiders also looted and destroyed 95 houses and three churches. Gyang Adamu, one of the pastor's surviving children who was away at the University of Jos at the time, “got to know about the attack when I saw a post on Facebook that Abonong village [his home], was under attack,” he said.
When he finally got through to someone local, “the report I received was very devastating; I couldn't believe that all my family members have been engulfed in the pogrom. On reaching home, I saw my daddy and younger ones burnt beyond recognition. The sight of the gory incident broke me down.”
