Thought we were done? Think again! Halifax youth will plug into the world again this Friday. “We haven’t gone away. We’re just getting started!” —Julia Sampson, Grade 12 student at Citadel High. Halifax students will be part of the next global climate strike this Friday, November 29

Margaret Kimberley’s talk takes place on the occasion of the Halifax International Security Forum. She will address the need for a strong anti-war movement on the left, the importance of building an anti-war Black grassroots struggle, and the intersections of race, war, poverty, and imperialism.

The U.S.-based Halifax International Security Forum (HISF), known to the anti-war movement as the Halifax War Conference, returns to Halifax for the 11th year in a row from November 22 to 24. Every year, this event brings warmongers and war criminals, and their handmaidens, to plan further aggression against the peoples of the world. This is unacceptable. Join in actions to get Canada out of NATO, Make Canada a Zone for Peace and reaffirm that Halifax is “No Harbour For War”!

Twelve groups and organizations throughout Canada including No One Is Illegal – Halifax/K’jipuktuk (NOII-Hfx) have issued an open letter in solidarity with an undocumented family in Waterloo, Ontario facing deportation to Guatemala. Ahead of tomorrow’s expected post-election cabinet shuffle, they call on the Trudeau government to let the family stay in Canada.
