(en) Canada, MONTREAL, Reminder, Bush out of Baghdad, Canada out of Kandahar! Join the Anti-Imperialist Contingent (March 17, )

Date Tue, 30 Jan 2007 14:25:49 +0200

[Please post and forward widely ...Join the Anti-imperialist contingent in Montreal on March 17, 2007, part of a worldwide day of action against theoccupation of Iraq.] March 2007 marks the fourth anniversary of the brutal invasion and occupation of Iraq ? George Bush is increasing -- despite worldwide opposition and outrage -- the number of American troops in Iraq, meaning more death and devastation for Iraqi civilians ? The so-called "War on Terror" expands, with the recent bombardment and occupation of Somalia, and continued torture and abuse at American-run concentration camps at Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib, Bagram and at secret prisons all over the world.
Meanwhile the Canadian government continues to support US-led imperialism in the Middle East with thousands of troops in Afghanistan, and Stephen Harper describing the deaths of civilians in Lebanon and Palestine as "measured and ustified."

In opposition to war, occupation and imperialism, this coming Saturday,
March 17, 2007 we take to the streets to demand:


Join the "Block the Empire! Anti-Imperialist Contingent"
Part of a worldwide day of action against the occupation of Iraq.

--> Mobilizing and Outreach: We are actively reaching out to the Montreal
community, to spread the word about anti-war mobilizations on March 17, as
part of worldwide actions against the occupation of Iraq (and against all
military occupations). To help with our efforts, get in touch!

--> Endorsements: In addition to opposing the occupation of Iraq and
Canada's involvement in Afghanistan, the Anti-Imperialist contingent is also
highlighting support for indigenous sovereignty on Turtle Island, solidarity
with grassroots resistance to imperialism, and clear opposition to war,
militarization and occupation (including opposition to the complicity of
Canadian corporations and so-called "NGOs"). If you endorse the contingent
let us know by e-mail bloquezlempiremontreal@resist.ca or phone
(514-848-7583). There are currently at least 30 collectives, groups and
organizations that have endorsed the Anti-Imperialist Contingent.

--> Postering and Flyering: We will be postering throughout Montreal, and
flyering at metros and community events in the coming weeks. To help with
both efforts, get in touch.

--> Art, Theatre and Creative Resistance: One very important part of the
anti-imperialist contingent will be art, theatre and other forms of creative
resistance. We have an active crew of artists, and a marching band, that are
preparing for the contingent on March 17. An art committee will be preparing
materials for the demo. To get involved, or to find out about art committee
meetings, contact us by e-mail or phone.

--> Organizing: If you have the time, get involved directly with Block the
Empire-Montreal, by attending our meetings or events. In addition to
organizing the anti-imperialist contingent on March 17, we are also
campaigning against armed forces recruitment, organizing against the
upcoming deployment of 2000 troops to Afghanistan from Valcartier,
supporting indigenous sovereignty efforts at Six Nations, organizing popular
efforts, and more.

Block the Empire-Montreal is an anti-authoritarian, direct-action collective
opposed to war and militarization, and their roots and manifestations:
colonialism, imperialism and capitalism. We seek to expose the links
between capitalist globalization and patriarchy, racism and all forms of
oppression, both here and abroad. Our work locally aims to disrupt and
directly impact the interests of those who are actively complicit in these
systems, from companies who fuel and profit from war and occupation, to the
supporters and outposts of US Empire and the Canadian state. We endorse the
People's Global Action (PGA) hallmarks, and we act in direct solidarity with
all those on the frontlines of resistance and struggle against occupation
and exploitation - from those resisting the racist "War on Terror" in the
Middle East, Latin America, Africa and Asia, to the struggle for indigenous
sovereignty here on Turtle Island (occupied North America).
