NOWAR/PAIX (www.nowar-paix.ca) was formed by a group
of concerned
Ottawa-area citizens in response to: 

-the horrific events of September 11, 2001; 

-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. 

-to oppose terrorism in all its forms, the U.S. call
to war, and Canada's participation therein; 

-to oppose racism and the racist backlash against
people of colour, including attacks on immigrant and
refugee rights; and

-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.

The conservation movement is a breeding ground of Communists and other subversives. We intend to clean them out, even if it means rounding up every bird watcher in the country.
