HANDS OFF SYRIA --
Can't trust U.S. Intelligence
War is not the answer
Danger of expanded conflict
EMERGENCY RALLY TO STOP THE WAR
Human Rights Monument, Ottawa (at Elgin and Lisgar)
5pm ET on the day the bombs drop or the following day if an attack happens after 5pm ET.
The drums of war are beating again, this time for a US-led attack on Syria. Take to the streets to tell the Government of Canada and NATO to keep their hands off Syria.
They lied about Iraq. They're lying about Syria. Don't let them do it again.

Call for end of repression
The Canadian Peace Alliance is calling on the government of Canada to use all diplomatic channels at its disposal to call for an end to the attacks on civilians, workers and political parties in Egypt.
Since the military took control of the government on July 3rd, there has been widespread suspension of civil liberties for many Egyptians and a wholesale killing of those protesting military rule.
CANADA OUT OF LIBYA!!
The decision-makers in Washington and Tel Aviv are not threatened by Iranian nuclear weapons. Rather they worry about Iran’s challenge to their regional domination. And, like a good follower, Harper has enthusiastically gone along with his friends’ war. By Yves Engler.
Read how Harper has gone to war against Iran.
NO TO POLITICAL ASSASSINATIONS!
NOWAR-PAIX condemns the murder of Muammar Gaddafi at the hands of the so-called Libyan rebels. This immoral, illegal and horrifying act is nothing but a planned and minutely executed political assassination.
Read the full statement here.
Resolve conflicts through peaceful, diplomatic means, not through interference and use of force!
NOWAR-PAIX unequivocally condemns the escalation of aggression by NATO forces against Libya and the continuing occupation. Since March 2011, these forces have been carrying out brutal interference in Libya and the entire North-African region under the pretext of opposing brutal dictatorships. Once again, an oil-rich, welthy nation is being attacked and occupied under the pretext of a “humanitarian effort.”

Help Moe get his appeal. Sign the new statement of support for an open, fair trial and no deportation to torture. We now have almost 2000 signatures.
STOP Secret Trials in Canada

Launch of Peoples' Investigation
into Police Abuses
- Toronto Community Mobilization Network -
Community groups are calling on the public to come forward with photos, video, and eye witness accounts of police violence against civilians during the G20 summits in Toronto. This evidence will be used to ensure that there are consequences for all those who beat and injured people, and for the masterminds who conspired to plan and give orders for the widespread police violence and repression that was experienced by thousands on the streets.

Six-Month Campaign to Free Abousfian Abdelrazik from the Prison Without Walls
Build the pressure! Break the Sanctions!
PARTICIPATE in a SANCTIONS-BUSTING TELETHON
Phone number 1-877-737-4070
TIME TO BREAK THE SANCTIONS
Project Fly Home is organizing the first ever Sanctions-busting Telethon on Wednesday, April 28th, from 7to9pm. The telethon is being organized to challenge the United Nations "1267" sanctions regime and show solidarity with Abousfian Abdelrazik, who is on the 1267 list.
During the telethon, we will invite people to call in to 1 877 737 4070 to pledge a donation to Abdelrazik. As you know, this regime imposes an asset freeze on listed individuals; as it is implemented in Canada, it is illegal for anyone to provide Abdelrazik with any funds or financial support. Thus the telethon is an open call for people to defy this law, as unconstitutional, unjust, and dangerous.
Rabble Tv has tentatively agreed to live-broadcast the show (pending a check of technical capacities), so you can probably tune in to watch the show from across Canada and even internationally at www.rabble.ca.
We are hoping that you can support this initiative in the following two ways:
- agree in advance to call in. If you can do this, send us an email - we want to guarantee that there will be a decent number of calls!
- encourage people in your cities and regions to call in and donate in defiance of the sanctions. Download the poster and let people know by email.
