PAN-CANADIAN NATO COUNTER-SUMMIT: BUILDING A NATIONAL RESISTANCE TO THE ALLIANCE
Monday, June 14, 2021
7:00-8:30 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
All welcome to this webinar to hear brief presentations from activists across the country about why Canada should withdraw from NATO, a US-dominated, nuclear-armed alliance, and why NATO should be abolished for genuine peace and security in the world.
We will share ideas and plan next steps to delegitimize the alliance and build support for Canada to withdraw. It is because of Canada’s membership in NATO that Canada is planning to spend 2% of GDP on the military and planning to buy new fighter jets and build new warships. It is why Canada is not joining the new treaty to ban nuclear weapons and why the Canadian Armed Forces are participating in a massive war exercise now in Europe (Steadfast Defender 2021).
Confirmed speakers so far include: Radhika Desai, Yves Engler, Margaret Villamizar, David Gehl, Isaac Saney, Alison Bodine, Ken Stone, Tamara Lorincz & more to come. There will be time for a discussion and strategy session.
Moderated by: Bianca Mugyenyi, Canadian Foreign Policy Institute
Organized by the Canadian Voice of Women for Peace, Canadian Foreign Policy Institute, Mobilization Against War and Occupation, Winnipeg Peace Alliance, Regina Peace Council, Hamilton Coalition to Stop the War, CPC(M-L), Ottawa Peace Council, Canadian Peace Congress and the Anti-imperialist Alliance.
