PLANNING MEETING TO
PROTEST SAUDI LAV ARMS DEAL
You are invited to
a planning meeting for actions to protest arms sales, with
emphasis on the immoral Saudi Lav deal. We plan to use CANSEC,
Canada's largest arms show to protest. CANSEC attracts
buyers from all over the world. CANSEC stands for Canadian
Security and replaces the old name of ARMEX. They sell
surveillance equipment as well as arms.
We need help to plan and build actions against the increasingly indiscriminate and growing arms trade. Please join our planning meeting or stay tuned to help spread

Join in Anti-War Actions Across Canada to Mark the 13th
Anniversary of the U.S. Invasion of Iraq and to Oppose Canada's
Involvement in Wars of Aggression!
March 19, 2016 is the 13th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of
Iraq which devastated the country and along with other actions of
the U.S. imperialists laid the foundation for the crisis that we
see in the region today.
The new Liberal government is drastically increasing Canada's
military presence in Iraq as well as placing troops in Lebanon and
Jordan. It is doubling Canada's "intelligence" assets in the
region. Meanwhile Canada is interfering in the peace process in
Syria through its support for groups advocating regime change, and
selling arms to Saudi Arabia to use in its war against the people

Danger of expanded conflict
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.

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, wealthy nation is
being attacked and occupied under the pretext of a “humanitarian

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.
