Unacceptable military intervention in Ukraine

Montreal picket January 31, 2015 opposes attack on peoples of eastern Ukraine.

By TONY SEED

(March 25) – On March 6, the Trudeau government announced an extension of Canada’s military intervention in the civil war in Ukraine for another two years. Since January 2014, Canada has allocated $700 million in funds for Ukraine, some of which was used to purchase military equipment. The Trudeau Liberals are now adding untold more hundreds of millions to this amount. Continue reading

The 8th annual Halifax International Security Forum will be convened on November 18-20 as a platform for warmongering and empire building of U.S. imperialism and the NATO bloc, in which the Trudeau Liberal Government is fully embroiled.

Warmongers from more than 50 countries will join Canadian Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan and some 300 others at the Washington, DC based Forum “to learn from each other, share opinions, generate new ideas, and put them into action.”

The first forum in 2009 was dedicated to popularizing NATO’s then-new “security doctrine.” Subsequent forums have provided a stage to justify NATO’s “humanitarian intervention” in Libya and the whole African continent, Syria and Iran. This forum will no doubt further NATO’s dark plans to attack and destroy the Assad government in Syria under the guise of destroying ISIL “Islamic terrorism,” or for NATO schemes to use Ukraine as a battering ram and platform from which to foster major aggression against Russia.

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, bring your music and statements, and most of all bring your friends to oppose this war conference.
