[OPIRG-EVENTS] Meeting Monday - NOWAR/PAIX meeting
The next NOWAR/PAIX meeting is on Monday Sept 23rd
from 7:00pm-9:00pm 123 Simard Hall at the University
of Ottawa on Waller St. just south of Laurier.
(Sometimes meetings are switched to 125 across the
hall – if there is problem with the meeting spot we
will leave a note on the door.)
All are welcome and this is wheelchair accessible.
There will be updates on the numerous campaigns and
events. These updates will include the Iraq campaign
and the SPHR Sept 27 and Sept 28 events and more.
WHO IS NOWAR/PAIX?
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
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.
