ALL OUT THIS SATURDAY, JANUARY 25: "No War On Iran" Actions Across Canada

01/22/20

Announcement by Canadian Peace Congress

Tensions remain extreme in the Persian Gulf following the January 2, 2020 drone attack in Baghdad which killed Iranian Major-Gen. Qasem Soleimani and dozens of others in a blatant and illegal escalation by US imperialism. While the likelihood of further military action has receded at least temporarily, Washington seems intent to ratchet up economic sanctions and its propaganda war against Tehran, and the possibility of overt military aggression remains high.

For this reason, peace organizations internationally have called for a Global Day of Protest this Saturday, January 25th, around the theme "No War on Iran!".

Numerous actions are planned across Canada on this day, and the Canadian Peace Congress urges all of its members and supporters, and all concerned people to support these mobilizations!

Here is a list of local protests and actions across the country. Please note however that new actions are being arranged and announced daily, so if your urban centre is not listed here, please check with local social networks, or initiate an action yourselves:
