(en) Canada, Ottawa, Confront Bush and Harper! PGA Bloc Meeting, Wed. July 4th

Date Sun, 01 Jul 2007 17:10:35 +0300

BUSH AND HARPER ANYWHERE! RESISTANCE EVERYWHERE! PGA Bloc Ottawa Action Planning Meeting to Prepare for Bush's Visit --- We invite all Ottawa anti-capitalists, anti-imperialists, and anti-authoritarians to participate in action planning for the arrival of George Bush, Stephen Harper, and Felipe Calderon in Montebello, Quebec, on August 20-21, 2007. --- 7:00PM --- WEDNESDAY, JULY 4TH --- ROOM 125 SIMARD HALL --- UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA --- OTTAWA, ONTARIO --- This August 20th and 21st, Stephen Harper will welcome George Bush and Felipe Calderon to the Chateau Montebello, at a resort town between Ottawa and Montreal, to continue to implement the "Security and Prosperity Partnership." --- We have always known these are the leaders who have done so much for the "security and prosperity" of indigenous people of the Americas; who have greatly added to the tip-top happy security of Muslim, Arab and migrant communities through the introduction of such measures as "Safe Third Country", special registration, "anti-terrror" laws, and the use of the security certificate; who are busy securing Afghanistan
for the prosperity of others; who have done such a fantastic job in
raising the security and prosperity of Iraqis (655,000 securely dead
since the beginning of the invasion, as of last Lancet study) ... and
they are here to plan for much more !

In coordination with allies from across the Northeast, we are working
to organize effective direct confrontations of the Montebello Security
and Prosperity Summit and the individuals and institutions that
support it. We invite all local anti-capitalists, anti-imperialists
and anti-authoritarians to come together to plan actions that will
disrupt and, if possible, shut down the Summit.

The PGA Bloc Ottawa endorses, and takes as a guide to our organizing,
the Hallmarks of the People's Global Action. These Hallmarks are:

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.
