Members of the War Resisters Support Campaign have been taking road trips every Saturday, visiting ridings where Conservative MPs squeaked into their seats by small margins. They've been having great success gathering signatures on our petition and raising awareness - and almost always end up in the local paper on Monday morning.
This Saturday, August 2, they'll be visiting Guelph in advance of the upcoming by-election. If you can join them or know people who could, please pass this along and contact the Campaign at either email@example.com or 416.598.1222.

Wednesday night, August 20 in Toronto, come out to Grossman's Tavern for music by Chloe Watkinson and the Crossroads. Music starts at 8:30, and all proceeds benefit the War Resisters Support Campaign.
Resisters have a huge amount of legal fees on the horizon, and every little bit helps. Admission is $10, or what you can.
Grossman's Tavern is at 379 Spadina, corner of Cecil Street, Toronto.

Saturday, September 13 will be a National Day of Action in support of war resisters in Canada. If you belong to a group that will support our efforts - peace, environmental, spiritual, labour, justice, anything - please put it on your group's calendar and mobilize your membership for local action. You can choose the action. Just take action and be visible.
If you want to sign on as an endorser or otherwise get involved, contact the Campaign.
