[OPIRG-EVENTS] NOWAR meeting Thurs. - 7 p.m.

NOWAR Meeting
Thursday, November 8
7 p.m. 
Rm. 201, Jack Purcell Community Centre (Elgin at
Organized by NOWAR 
In response to the horrific events of September
11, the resulting declarations of war by the U.S.
and its military allies, the attack on civil
liberties and the right to dissent, and the ugly
racist and
xenophobic attacks on innocent people of colour
across North America, a group of concerned
citizens has recently formed the Network to
Oppose War and Racism (NOWAR). 
This coalition has three goals: 
1) to oppose terrorism in all its forms, the U.S.
call to war, and Canada's participation therein; 
2) to oppose the racist backlash against people
of colour, including attacks on immigrant and
3) to oppose the erosion of civil liberties in
the name of national security. 
Our network, which is made up of a diversity of
members from within the community, seeks to build
broad-based coalition of organizations and
individuals within the Ottawa region to advance
the above goals
by organizing events and increasing public
awareness in the coming weeks and months.
