organized to celebrate nonviolence to express opposition to NATO -- during

possibly muster!  

(If you are not in Ottawa, then please meet locally to discuss bringing
buses, cars, trains, unicycles and your creative talents to our fair city!
If you are too far away from Ottawa to even think of attending or arranging
transportation, then you can always endorse it or contribute financially.
