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”!

That’s right, not one but two simultaneous war conferences in Halifax! Tony Seed continues his analysis of the Halifax International Security Forum with a look at the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, an event that will bring together 600 politicians from the 29 NATO bloc member countries, as well as delegates from partner countries to discuss international security issues.

In part 3 of this series Tony Seed highlights the annual rallies held against the annual Halifax war conference, a.k.a. the Halifax International Security Forum (HISF), as part of the organized anti-war movement in the city since the 1980s, which gave rise to this opposition. Lots of photos here.

Tony Seed on this year’s U.S.-led “Halifax International Security Forum” (HISF), referred to by many as the Halifax War Conference, taking place on November 16-18. An anti-war rally will be held to protest it on November 17. First of a series of investigative articles and reports to be written by Tony on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the HISF.
