An invitation to a MONTREAL-AREA ORGANIZING MEETING for groups and individuals
mobilizing against George W. Bush's visit to Ottawa on November 30 & December 1
Tuesday November 23rd, 2004 6PM 1710 Beaudry Metro Beaudry
Whisper translation to French and English will be provided.
As US fighter planes continue to bombard Fallujah, Mosul and other cities
across occupied Iraq, the commander-in-chief of the US Army, George W.
Bush has confirmed his plans to pay an official visit to Ottawa on
November 30 and December 1st 2004. The Canadian government, headed by Paul
Martin, is preparing a warm welcome for him, betraying its true colors as
a willing ally to a regime of international terrorism.

Across the world, people are waging battles for survival, dignity, freedom
and justice against U.S. military and economic offensives. We can do no
less. On November 30 and December 1st 2004, we must make the most of an
opportunity to confront the Bush and Martin administrations on their
murderous policies, so thinly disguised as "security agendas."

To this end, we invite all Montreal-area groups and individuals to an
organizing meeting to:

> share information about the upcoming demonstrations against Bush's
visit being planned by groups organizing in Ottawa;
> coordinate Montreal-area efforts to mobilize as many people as
possible for the demonstrations on N30 and D1;
> share information about initiatives being taken by Montreal-area
groups within the framework of the demonstrations in Ottawa on N30 and D1.

This meeting hopes to initiate the creation of an ad-hoc organizing space
for the sole purpose of mobilizing for Bush's visit to Ottawa. It does not
aspire to becoming a permanent organizational body or political entity.

Nonetheless, the meeting is being called on the basis of the Peoples
Global Action (PGA) hallmarks, which will serve as the basis of our work
together:

1. A very clear rejection of capitalism, imperialism and feudalism; all
trade agreements, institutions and governments that promote destructive
globalisation.

2. We reject all forms and systems of domination and discrimination
including, but not limited to, patriarchy, racism and religious
fundamentalism of all creeds. We embrace the full dignity of all human
beings.

3. A confrontational attitude, since we do not think that lobbying can
have a major impact in such biased and undemocratic organisations, in
which transnational capital is the only real policy-maker;

4. A call to direct action and civil disobedience, support for social
movements' struggles, advocating forms of resistance which maximize
respect for life and oppressed peoples' rights, as well as the
construction of local alternatives to global capitalism.

5. An organisational philosophy based on decentralisation and autonomy.
