NO WAR ON IRAN!
HANDS OFF SYRIA!
WAR CRIMINALS – OUT OF HALIFAX!
CANADA OUT OF NATO!
NO HARBOUR FOR WAR!
Established four years ago, the Halifax International Security Forum, based in Washington, D.C., will take place Nov. 16-18 at the Westin hotel.
Warmongers from more than 40 countries will join Peter MacKay and some 300 others at the Forum “to learn from each other, share opinions, generate new ideas, and put them into action.”
Amongst the agenda items are:
• Confronting Iran
• Syria’s Terror, the Middle East’s Tragedy
• American Global Leadership After the Election
• Securing Global Supply Chains
• Learning from Israel
• Gaining Control of Loose Weapons and Loose Chemicals
• North Korea’s New Kim: Just Like the Old Kim?
• Being There: Special Responsibility of Democratic Nations
This is all looked at from the perspective that, as the world’s sole superpower, the U.S. is free to dictate to the peoples of the world as it pleases.
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. Bring your banners and placards, bring your music and statements, and most of all bring your friends to oppose this war conference.
A world conflagration looms. Only through conscious and systematic organization can the people stop the warmongers.
