“The government of Canada is sending Canadian CF-18s to bomb ISIS in Iraq. There are already Canadian Special Forces on the ground taking part in the war.
Iraq and Syria are in ruins because of interventions by the US and its allies. More bombing will not make the situation better but will make things worse for the people of both countries. Western bombs are already killing civilians and each new strike may actually strengthen ISIS. This is a pattern we have seen over and over again in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan and throughout the history of US wars.
The Ottawa Peace Assembly is calling for a city wide planning meeting to decide on next steps to counter the Harper government’s drive to all-out war.
Date: Thursday, October 16 2014
Time: 7:00 – 8:30 PM
