[OPIRG-EVENTS] NOWAR/PAIX march this Saturday

Saturday August 10th there is one of the weekly noon
march starting at the corner of Sussex and York.  This
is an opportunity for people oppose to 
-the so called 'war on other peoples terrorism' 
-all of the racism, anti-immagrent laws 
-erosion of civil liberties that this ‘war’ has helped
to fuel 
-to collectively voice our opposition to this war,
like-minded people and spread information to market
dwellers about the realities they don't see on the
front page of their local papper.  

Please bring your signs, t-shirts and outrage,
like-minded announcements, etc. 

We have had a special request for some sort of musical
talent or Un-talented folk willing to act musically
anyway while we are walking.

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 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.
