Parliament is expected to vote, March 13, to extend Canadian military involvement in Afghanistan to the end of 2011. The result of the vote is a forgone conclusion. Even though most Canadians oppose the war, the Liberals will vote with the Tories at a time when you might expect them to demonstrate their legendary opportunism and tilt to the left for a while. (Never forget, the Liberals got us into this mess. Huffing and puffing aside, Liberal and Tory positions are almost identical.)
Peace Alliance Winnipeg is organizing two events:
- March 13: Rally at the corner of River Avenue and Osborne Street between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.
- March 15: Rally at the corner of Water Avenue and Main Street from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Bring your own placard and dress warmly.
For information on national and international anti-war activities, and what you can do to help, consult the Canadian Peace Alliance web site.
We need to tell the Liberals and the Tories that they do not speak in our name. They have no mandate and no right to continue this war.
NOT IN OUR NAME!
