Saturday, 21 May 2005, 7:30pm - Gather at stairs of Place
des Arts (Ste-Catherine St., Place des Arts metro)
The convergence of Empire and the corporations which profit from the
policies of war and colonization they help dictate, is rarely made more explicit
than by the location of the U.S consulate in Montreal: housed within the
headquarters of SNC-Lavalin, one of Canada's premiere merchants of war.
As the "War on Terror" continues to serve as the contemporary pretext for
the exploitation, criminalization, detention and killing of people within
the walls of Fortress North America and around the world, Canada's role in
the global empire of corporate colonization has not slackened.
SNC-Lavalin, Canada's largest engineering company, Is a near-perfect
reflection of the policies of the Canadian government. From their bullet
production for the occupation of Iraq to their mining-related projects in
Namibia, Guyana, Mozambique, to their projects in Cree, Mohawk and Innu
lands, here at home, their hands have been bloodied in virtually every
place around the globe where there are resources to be exploited and
populations to be pacified. Their corporate profits benefit from and
dictate the policies of Empire. SNC-Lavalin is Canadian imperialism.

Anarchists from across the continent will be gathering in Montreal to
share experiences and knowledge from our diverse communities and
struggles for dignity, hope and life. It is a perfect opportunity to
join together to confront the Montreal home-base of the US government and
Canadian war-profiteering.

Across Canada, there is a campaign underway to "Take Down SNC" – a
challenge to everyone who seeks to profit from war and occupation and a
challenge to Canadian imperialism from inside Fortress North America.
This demonstration will help to move that campaign forward while
expressing our total opposition to the US and Canadian governments and
their colonialist policies around the world.

Join us on the streets to Take Down SNC!
