Canada out of NATO monthly protest

Wednesday, July 31, 2019 - 12:00 to 13:00

Every month this year, the Canadian Voice of Women for Peace (VOW) will be holding a peace vigil outside the NATO Association of Canada headquarters in downtown Toronto. This year is the 70th anniversary of this male-dominated military alliance and Cold War relic that threatens our security. In July, the NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg came to Toronto to push Canada to increase military spending and to be more involved in NATO (https://www.nato.int/cps/en/natohq/news_167854.htm). Canada can't afford more military spending. Canada's NATO membership is fomenting tension and conflict with Russia. Moreover, it is because of our membership in NATO that Canada will NOT join the new UN nuclear ban treaty.  VOW is calling for the Canadian government to withdraw from NATO and work through the United Nations on disarmament and the Sustainable Development Goals that will bring genuine human security. No to NATO; yes to peace, nonviolence and sustainability! Organized by the Canadian Voice of Women for Peace (VOW): https://www.facebook.com/events/882591895440993/ Find out more about VOW: vowpeace.org

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
