Monday April 18th from 12pm - 1pm
827 Fort Street, Victoria
Outside DND Recruitment Centre

Organized by the Canadian Voice of Women for Peace and theInternational Peace Bureau

The Canadian government spends over $23.6 billion on the Department of National Defence and $9.8 billion on Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness but only $1.5 billion on Environment Canada, of which only $172 million is planned to be spent on "Climate Change and Clean Air" for the 2015, 2016 & 2017 budget periods.  Canada is the 6th highest spender on the military among NATO countries and is the 16th highest worldwide. 

 

We cannot tackle the climate crisis and end poverty in our country, if we continue to waste our precious tax dollars on war and weapons. Let’s move the money from militarism to sustainability!

Obama revenge for Netanyahu's Congress talk? 1987 report on Israel's top secret nuclear program released in unprecedented move.

In a development that has largely been missed by mainstream media, the Pentagon early last month quietly declassified a Department of Defense top-secret document detailing Israel's nuclear program, a highly covert topic that Israel has never formally announced to avoid a regional nuclear arms race, and which the US until now has respected by remaining silent.

But by publishing the declassified document from 1987, the US reportedly breached the silent agreement to keep quiet on Israel's nuclear powers for the first time ever, detailing the nuclear program in great depth.

On November 11 we take a day from our work to reflect on the ravages of war.  While people in uniforms  carrying swords and guns gather at the Cenotaph we assemble at the Spirit of the Republic to hear other stories from other survivors.  Our event is meant to be the sharing of stories from all comers.  We’re inviting you to share your experiences, songs and poems.  

 

            White poppies will be available free of charge.
