I second Jesse's suggestion:

*Join picket lines: Etobicoke Civic Centre, City Hall, North York Civic Centre, Scarborough Civic Centre.

Hey L, off-topic post here but at the concert last night the opening band (Strike Anywhere) put out a song to the war resisters. I thought it was cool.

Tim, thanks for telling me!!

Where was the show? What did they say?

It was at the Phoenix in Toronto, Propagandhi was headlining - there's a 2nd show going on tonight...they just said the song was for the war resisters, and talked about how messed up it is that in the states, the army goes into high-schools and has sign-up booths to pluck kids out and ship them off to war. I didn't really hear/comprehend any of the lyrics, such is the nature of punk rock live, but I plan on looking into it later today.

That is so cool!

I knew which show it was (thank you gamethread!). I'm going to ask around, see if anyone else I know was there. Very cool.

Plus it was a crappy game, good timing for you. :)
