thursday, july 10: national day of action to stop the deportation of iraq war resisters

I should have information on events in many Canadian cities tomorrow. Meanwhile, in Toronto:

Thursday, July 10, 4:30 - 6:30 p.m.
Human Chain stretching from the Federal Court to US Consulate
Northwest corner of Queen Street West and University Avenue

The motion passed in the House of Commons June 3 called for a provision to allow war resisters to stay and to stop removal proceedings against war resisters in Canada. The Harper government is refusing to implement that motion.

Sgt. Corey Glass has been asked to leave Canada on July 10th. Many other resisters and their families face a similar fate if the Harper government continues to ignore Parliament and the majority of Canadians.

The War Resisters Support Campaign is calling on all supporters to join US Iraq War Resisters to create a human chain from the Federal Court building on Queen Street to the U.S. Consulate. You are encouraged to bring placards, signs, organization banners, and their friends and family to show that the majority of Canadians want war resisters to stay.

Join us! Tell your friends!

Thursday July 10, 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., Queen Street West and University Avenue
