Join in this Vancouver rally for democracy and justice in Egypt:

After the fall of Ben-Ali in Tunisia and the revolution against Mubarak in Egypt, the revolution is spreading to all Arab countries. The peoples' movement is basically a call for justice. It is a peaceful struggle for economic and social development via democracy.

The defiant and deceptive actions of Mubarak with the pathetic stand of some of the western governments in general and the U.S. in particular vis-a-vis the legitimate aspirations of the Egyptian people are unacceptable and counter-productive.

We are feeling the effects of the global water crisis in Ontario. Loopholes and a lack of regulatory willpower have left even the Oak Ridges Moraine hurting from water shortages. People are mobilizing to protect their water from the developers and Big Industry that have unlimited access to the government and unlimited funds to get what they want.

IT'S ABOUT TO GET WORSE!
