torontonians, mark your calendar to support war resisters

The War Resister Support Campaign is hosting a Sunday film event to raise awareness and much-needed funds for legal defense.

Please join us on Sunday, March 15 to see three short films about military resistance:

  • "Parallels," a 10-minute film featuring Iraq War resister Joshua Key and a Vietnam War resister,

  • "Deserter," a 24-minute film featuring Ryan Johnson and Jennifer Johnson, who live in Toronto and are active in the campaign, and

  • "The Conscience of a Nation: Winter Soldier," a condensed version of the Winter Soldier Iraq and Afghanistan event, featuring 30 veterans' voices in 30 minutes.

    When: Sunday, March 15, 2:00 p.m.

    Where: Innis College, 2 Sussex Drive on University of Toronto campus

    Suggested Donation: $7 to $20, or more if you can

    Why: As the Harper Government ignores the will of Parliament and the Canadian people, we are forced to defend resisters individually in court. Our legal costs are outstripping our ability to pay, and we need your help. See some good movies, get educated and throw some money in the bucket.
