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.

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.

Yesterday we published Judy Haiven’s take on the Halifax Explosion, arguing that in essence a war crime occurred, today Tony Seed makes a similar case in this well-researched article. “The tragedy of the Halifax Explosion, the subsequent Naval Magazine explosion of July 1945 and other preventable incidents since then shows that the granting of military-naval concessions and other privileges to the superpowers and their naval fleets represent nothing but great danger to the democratic right of the people to live in peace and to their freedom.”
