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 continues his series on the upcoming Halifax International Security Forum, why and how is Canada paying for the annual war conference, how is the conference being sold to us, and why pick Halifax of all places?
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.
This afternoon protesters rallied against the eighth International Security Conference held in the Westin in Halifax. When you hear the word security you better duck, said Billy Lewis, because they’re talking about you.
