[OPIRG-EVENTS] NOWAR/PAIX March this Saturday

The NOWAR/PAIX marches continue.

They start Saturdays at noon at the courner of York
and Sussex and they end at parliament hill. Along the
way we carry banners and signs with our messages, we
weave through the market and also usually distribute
literature and information that is not readily offered
on the front pages of your local mainstream papers.

Bring your signs, noise and outrage! 
You can also bring any announcements about upcoming
events or groups that you feel would be relevant.


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 (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 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.
