News release: Preliminary hearing for alleged nail gun shooter

Halifax – The first 2019 case of alleged hate and criminal hate causing bodily harm is scheduled to be heard in Pictou County Courthouse ( 69 Water Street, Pictou, NS.) on  January 7, 2019 at 9:30.

Nhlanhla Dlamini was brutally shot with a high velocity nail gun (September 19, 2018) by Shawn Wade Hynes a co-worker employed with PQ Properties Limited of Pictou Nova Scotia.

Hate Crimes against young African Canadian youth are especially heinous.  Case in point, the alleged racial bullying, racist taunts and slights that culminated in Nhlanhla Dlamini almost loosing his life.

Nhlanhla Dlamini is a 21-year-old African Nova Scotian youth who underwent emergency surgery for a collapsed lung states, “that the action of his co-worker was no accident but a deliberate attempt to injure.”

Hate crimes against persons of African descent are escalating in Canada and indeed Nova Scotia while authorities are failing to take a strong public stand against these intolerant actions…

African Nova Scotians and allies across Nova Scotia are outraged that anti Black racism is On The Job!
