convert the war dept. to the housing dept.

enforcing the un building code:  canada has signed a number of united
nations covenants on social, human and economic rights.  until we meet the
needs of people in our communities, we cannot, in accordance with our un
obligations, spend money on military activities.  on november 12, citizen
inspectors trained in non-violence will entrer the war dept. to renovate the
building to peaceful uses.

a civil society street festival:  our spending priorities must reflect our
committement to building a caring, civil society.  on the mackenzie bridge,
outside the war dept. there will be a street festival for day care,
non-violent initiatives, affordable housing, liveable social assistance
levels, health care, accessible education and more.

while part of the day is a "civil disobedience" action, there will be many
roles for people who are not prepared to risk arrest.

a non-violent training session.  the ottawa training session is wednesday,
november 10 from 5 - 10 pm at the university ot ottawa (simard hall, room
