NO ONE IS ILLEGAL!
A March of 1000 Flags of Resistance
In opposition to war, racism, imperialism and genocide
In solidarity with self-determination struggles and indigenous sovereignty
In defense of immigrant and native rights
Majors Hill Park
Across from the American Embassy
June 27, 2002, 1pm
The leaders of the G8 - the executive board of global capitalism - will be
retreating to the hills of Kananaskis on June 26 & 27. Surrounded by golf
courses, pristine wilderness and thousands of soldiers, part of their
declared agenda includes the so-called "War on Terrorism."
Their self-serving war has meant state terrorism against civilian
populations throughout the global South, including Afghanistan, Palestine,
Iraq, Somalia, Colombia, the Philippines and elsewhere. The same war on
terrorism has also meant the increasing criminalization of immigrants and
refugees in North America, with recent security and immigration laws used
as a pretext to marginalize and further scapegoat vulnerable communities.
The new "war on terror" is really something very old - the continuance of
systematic policies of exploitation and dispossession. These are policies
well understood by North America's indigenous populations, the victims of
a concerted policy of genocide for hundreds of years.
On June 27, the G8 leaders continue their plans for war - at home and
abroad. In response, we will come together in clear solidarity with
resistance movements worldwide and in our communities. We unite in
opposition to the agenda of exclusion, marginalization and exploitation
embodied by the policies of G8 nations. We also stand together in
solidarity with the courageous struggles for self-determination, dignity
and justice, from the camps of the West Bank to the indigenous communities
of Turtle Island; from the streets of Buenos Aires to the the jungles of
Join us in Ottawa on Thursday, June 27 as we march and display together
our flags and symbols of resistance. From the American Embassy to
Parliament Hill, we will declare: "No one is illegal!"
