LET THEM STAY! Day of Action

LET THEM STAY: Pan-Canadian Day of Action

LET THEM STAY!
January 26th is the Pan-Canadian Day of Action in Support of US War Resisters

RALLY IN SUPPORT OF US WAR RESISTERS
Saturday, January 26
1:00pm
Bloor Street United Church
300 Bloor Street West
Toronto
(TTC: Spadina or St. George)

Join communities across Canada on Saturday, January 26 to demand that Parliament pass a provision allowing US war resisters to remain in Canada and to call on the government to cease deportation hearings for resisters already in Canada.

IT’S URGENT THAT WE RAISE VISIBILITY NOW
With the recent Supreme Court decision to not hear appeals of resisters it’s urgent that we raise political visibility now. The opposition parties should unite on this issue and do what’s required to “Let Them Stay!”

Now is the right time to raise visibility. With elections possibly coming as soon as this spring, and Parliament returning to session in days after the January 26 Day of Action, we can get our MPs to take notice that Canadians want to let the US war resisters stay.

Getting the attention of Parliament requires that all Canadians of conscience stand up together and be heard.

RALLY AND THEN MARCH TO DELIVER MESSAGES TO PARLIAMENT
At the rally, we will write hundreds of urgent letters to our MPs. After the rally we plan to march to a nearby post office to deliver the letters and to send the message that our demand will be heard: Canadians of conscience support US War Resisters and demand that we “Let Them Stay!”
