The Time to Act is Now

Rally to Oppose the Harper Government's support for the US bombing of Syrian Civilians

At the Cenotaph, Belleville and Government St. Victoria

 Sunday September 8, 2 -4 pm

 

For  years various  guises have been used for justifying Military intervention:

"human security" (Iraq 1991),

"Humanitarian intervention"(Kosovo, 1999),

"self defence" (Afghanistan),

“Pre-emptive/preventive strike” (Iraq, 2003)

 "Responsibility to Protect" (Haiti, 2004, Libya, 2011),

 "will to intervene" (Mali, 2013), and

"moral imperative" (Syria)???

 

 

The rally is

- to oppose the US military intervention in Syria, and the Harper government’s support for the US-led military intervention

- To call for a ceasefire in Syria and a peace conference

- To  call for funding  assistance for Syrian refugees and for the countries that are hosting them
