Warmest greetings from Halifax to all those protesting against NATO and the Halifax International Security Forum in Toronto and Windsor, Ontario. We salute all those across the land from coast to coast who are engaged in discussing this dangerous event and what to do. The cause of peace, one of the highest ideals of humanity, is a noble endeavour.
“Things move slowly, but change comes, and it comes from us,” somebody said at yesterday’s rally against the warmongering Halifax International Security Festival. Here are some photos, and a poem by El Jones.
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”!
The U.S.-based Halifax International Security Forum (HISF), known to the anti-war movement as the Halifax War Conference, returns to that city for the 11th year in a row from November 22 to 24. This year protests aren’t limited to Halifax, writes Tony Seed.

Lots of photos and a poem by El Jones on the occasion of the tenth annual rally against the Halifax War Conference at the Peace and Freedom Park across from the Westin Hotel.
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.
