No Harbour For War is initiating a series of forums on the theme “War and Peace — Who Decides?” The first one will be held on Saturday, October 26 at 1:00 pm in the North Memorial Public Library, 2285 Gottingen Street.
As one of our members put it, “It is important that, immediately following the election, Canadians who oppose Canada’s involvement in global aggression should get together to discuss the issue of an anti-war government as a practical measure to make Canada a zone for peace.” Canadians in the main reject Canada’s involvement in U.S.-led aggression and war — they want Canada to be a genuine force for peace in the world.
On October 26, we invite all anti-war/peace and environmental activists to come together to discuss the many issues facing us on these matters. We also invite all those who, for whatever reasons, are interested in these topics.
This initial forum on war and peace is also a lead-in to the November 23 anti-war rally to be held against the 11th annual Halifax International Security Forum. This U.S.-based security forum, totally financed by Canadian taxpayers, is an important platform for the warmongering and empire-building of U.S. imperialism and the NATO bloc, in which the Trudeau Liberal government has been fully embroiled. It is unacceptable that Halifax, or any Canadian city, be used as a venue to plan further crimes against the peace and the peoples of the world.
