[OPIRG-EVENTS] NOWAR/PAIX march continue


Saturday June 15th, at noon, at the corner of York and
Sussex in the Byward Market of Ottawa.

This is a reminder that NOWAR/PAIX is continuing their
market marches. In a time where dissent or even real
discourse is invisible in the main stream - we invite
everyone to march on the market each Saturday to show
a public defiance and a visible support for all those
who see and oppose this so called war on terror for
what it is.  We share information on the civil rights
and liberties of human beings, the realities of war
and the racist scapegoating required to continue this
very real war at home. We share information not only
with each other, but also with our fellow citizens
enjoying the Byward Market of Ottawa.

Bring your signs, noise-makers and outrage!



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 the Network
to Oppose War and Racism/ Pacte contre l’agression,
l’intolérance et la xénophobie, (NOWAR/PAIX).

This network has three goals:
1) to oppose terrorism in all its forms, the U.S. call
to war, and Canada's participation                    
2) to oppose racism and 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.
