PSA” An international day of action has been called for Saturday, March 30 to protest NATO and specifically to defend Venezuela against foreign interference by the U.S., Canada and other NATO members and allies.

PSA: On Thursday January 24 the Sudanese community in Nova Scotia is organizing a demonstration supporting peaceful protests in Sudan.
