(en) Canada, Resistance 2010! Kick-off the Countdown to the Olympic Shutdown! Ottawa, Feb. 12th

Date Tue, 05 Feb 2008 12:08:58 +0200



A Festive Night March against the G8, the SPP and the 2010 Olympic Games -- NO
OLYMPICS ON STOLEN LAND! --- SHUT DOWN THE G8! --- ABOLISH THE SECURITY AND
PROSPERITY PARTNERHSIP! ---- Bring your noisemakers! A fiery heart! Things to
light up the night! --- February 12th 2008. --- Nation's Capital --- 6:00pm
corner of Rideau and William (market area) ---- Join PGA Ottawa on Feb 12th as
we kick-off the two year countdown to the 2010 Olympic Winter Games with a
festive march through the market area to expose and oppose the local corporate
profiteers behind the G8, the SPP and the Olympics. ---- Canada is getting ready
to play host to the 2010 Winter Olympic Games and the 2010 G8 summit, and is
also preparing to ratify the Security and Prosperity Partnership.

These three events are intrinsically linked through the oppression and
repression they will engender.

The G8 is a yearly coming together of the world's eight most powerful
nations, gathering to further develop their neoliberal, capitalist and
imperialist agendas and implement disastrous policies, often with the
help of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

The Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) builds on the North
American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Often referred to as "NAFTA
with guns" the SPP is adding increasingly repressive border control to
an already exploitative trade model.

The 2010 Winter Olympic Games, to be held in British Columbia, present
threats to First Nations people as well as homeless people, sex
workers, harm reduction advocates, the working poor of the province
and many others. Through land theft, street sweeps, gentrification and
ecologically destructive projects the 2010 Games have already begun
their unavoidable process of ruining lives and destroying communities.

Resistance 2010!

>From coast to coast anti-imperialists, anti-capitalists, anti-poverty
activists and folks opposed to the military and economic occupations
at home and abroad are mobilizing and organizing to confront these
institutions!

For years people have been resisting the G8 and the Olympics, and last
year saw a major convergence against the SPP.

On February 12th PGA Ottawa is launching its "Capital Punishment 2010"
campaign, aimed at disrupting business as usual for the corporations
profiting from the Olympics, the SPP and the G8 summit.

Join us on Feb 12th (two year countdown to the games). We will be
marching through the market area to expose and oppose the NACC, CCCE
and Olympics sponsors operating in our city.

You are encouraged to bring noisemakers, a fiery heart and any other
instruments to light up the night.

NO OLYMPICS ON STOLEN LAND!
SHUT DOWN THE G8!
ABOLISH THE SPP!
