[OPIRG-EVENTS] Next NOWAR/PAIX meeting on Monday August 12th

The Network to Oppose War and Racism/ Pacte contre
l’agression, l’intolérance et la xénophobie,
(NOWAR/PAIX), has it's next meeting on Monday August
12nd, at 7:00pm-9:00pm, in room 123 or room 125 Simard
Hall at the University of Ottawa on Waller St. just
south of Laurier. Rooms depend on availability, when
we are locked out of either of those rooms we head
down to the cafe in the sub-basement of that building
and post a sign to this effect. It has been sugested
that during the warm weather we move our meetings
outside. I'll bring this up Monday.  This is out of
our regular 2 week schedule because we skipped the
Monday of the long week-end.

We have to check in on some stuff, someone has
suggested that we organize a specific event, (Maybe
next Saturday?), to address the planning and
maneuvering for an attack on Iraq. So, please come
with any ideas on this.

As always, new individuals and groups are welcome at
our meetings.

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.
