People are being killed and lives are being torn apart, as bombs are dropped. Social and economic structures are being destroyed, as bombs are dropped. Houses and infrastructure are being demolished, as bombs are dropped. People are being displaced internally or forced to flee as refugees, as bombs are dropped. People are being driven to the brink of starvation, as bombs are dropped. The environment is being degraded, as bombs are dropped.
As wars are being waged in many parts of the world, these horrible consequences are the result, and occur each and every day.
WE NEED TO STOP THIS.
Join one of Canada’s most dynamic citizen campaigns. Canada has a greater role to play in reducing the mass suffering and death caused by war, terrorism, and violence — whether domestically or around the world.
Join us this evening to see how we can work together to build a Canada that is leading the world in a more peaceful direction.
Canadian Peace Initiative believes in peace by peaceful means. CPI is working on a campaign to create a Department of Peace in the federal government.
Everyone is welcome.
Light refreshments will be served.
Special guest: Theresa Dunn
-National Co-Chair of Canadian Peace Initiative.
-Peacebuilder for more than 28 years
Join the facebook event “Creating a culture of Peace” hosted by Vancouver CPI
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. But 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 only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
