CALL TO ACTION:
BAN THE BOMB!
NO NUCLEAR WEAPONS! NO MISSILE DEFENCE!
*We need 100 people to make the peace symbol!*
Saturday, June 17 from 12:00-1:00 p.m. Legislature, 501 Belleville St, Victoria.
Wear white and join us to form a giant human peace symbol!
Historic UN negotiations are taking place among 130 countries for a new treaty to ban nuclear weapons. However, Canada is shamefully boycotting the talks. Tell Prime Minister Trudeau to work with other countries to eliminate these weapons of mass destruction, resist the dangerous US ballistic missile defense system, and create a culture of peace and disarmament. There will also be a moment of silence for the victims and refugees of the wars in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya & Yemen etc and a song for peace. Raging Grannies will perform too! In solidarity with the international campaign Women’s March to Ban the Bomb www.womenbanthebomb.org and World Refugee Day. Come to express your opposition to Canada’s new dangerous defence policy for war-making and your hope for peace!

The May 9 BC election produced two clear results. Voters gave a thumbs-down to Christy Clark and the Liberals. And close to 60% cast ballots for two parties promising change – the NDP and Greens.
But Clark and her fellow servants of the property developers and resource exploiters have ignored the message. They’ve stalled for time. They claim they’re ready to govern. Meanwhile, they have been raking in millions of dollars from their rich supporters since the election.
It’s time to hand the Liberals their well-deserved eviction notice. Come to the opening of the legislature June 22 and add your voice to the demand for change!!!
