MCPJ Press Release: March 15 antiwar rally

A global day of action on

March 15, 2008:

Troops out of Iraq

and Afghanistan!

The Canadian Peace Alliance and the Collectif Échec à la guerre are calling for a pan-Canadian mobilization on March 15, 2008 to coincide with the fifth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq. That weekend will see protests around the world in answer to a callout for a global day of action to end the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan made by the World Against War Conference which met in London, England last December. In Canada, where the Liberals and Conservatives- contrary to the opinion of a clear majority of the population – seem intent on extending Canadian participation in the war in Afghanistan for at least three more years, it is vital that we take action ourselves to stop this war now.

In Mississauga we will also take part in this mobilization, and stand with the majority of Canadians against war and occupation, and our government’s role in George W. Bush’s “War on Terror”.

We will be gathering at 10:30 am, on the South-east corner of Hurontario and Dundas Streets for a rally and short march, then heading to Toronto by bus as a delegation.
