ABOUT NOWAR/PAIX: In response to the horrific 
events of September 11, the resulting
declarations of war by the U.S. government 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
Ottawa-area citizens has recently formed

This coalition has three goals: 

1) to oppose 
terrorism in all its forms (including state
terrorism), 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
refugee rights; 

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
a 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.
