in toronto: a fundraiser for iraq war resisters, featuring noah richler

The War Resisters Support Campaign presents "TELLING OUR STORY: A Fundraiser for U.S. Iraq War Resisters", at Innis College Town Hall in Toronto, Friday, December 7, at 7:00 p.m. This very special evening features author Noah Richler reading from his new book, What We Talk About When We Talk About War. There will also be a sneak preview of the upcoming film "Peace Has No Borders," about the struggles of US war resisters in Canada, a performance by the Common Thread Choir, and other special guests.

Advance tickets are available on a sliding scale, with a suggested donation of $20 or whatever you can afford.

As you know, the Harper Government turned a deaf ear to the massive public support for US war resister Kimberly Rivera, and forced her and her family to leave Canada. Kim is now being held at Fort Carson, Colorado, while her husband and four children are in Texas. It's a heartbreaking situation, one that we must lay at the feet of our own government. Many more US war resisters are at risk for the same treatment, and the War Resisters Support Campaign intends to continue mobilizing on their behalf.

We need your support to continue our efforts. Please consider purchasing advance tickets to "TELLING OUR STORY: A Fundraiser for U.S. Iraq War Resisters" by contacting me or the WRSC. If you can't attend, you can purchase a ticket to sponsor someone else. Hope to see you there.
