welcome to wage-peace.org

Welcome to wage-peace.org, a resource and listing centre representing several Alberta-based peace and antiwar activist groups. Our collective mission is to end the occupations of Iraq and Palestine which have resulted in the deaths of thousands of civilians. We also seek to end racial profiling and civil liberties clawbacks at home, and stop new wars from being waged in our names under the guise of a "war on terrorism."

We are in the process of building a new site.
Current information on March 20 events can be found on ecawar.org

Latest Announcements and News
March 20 - One Year Anniversary of the illegal US Invasion of Iraq

Events organized by ECAWAR are now being updated at www.ecawar.org. Please go there for the defintive update on March 20 events in Edmonton.

March 20, 2004 marks one full year since the start of the war on Iraq. Since then, thousands of innocent Iraqis have been killed, no weapons of mass destruction have been found, and democracy is nowhere in sight in “liberated” Iraq. Everything the anti-war movement said last year has proved correct.

Now, one year later, the anti-war movement is back to say “The World STILL Says No to War”! March 20 has been endorsed in countries all over the world as the next global day of protest to mark the one-year anniversary of the Iraq War.

In Canada there is increasing concern that Paul Martin’s Government is supporting many of the aggressive plans of the Bush Republicans. He is pushing for Canadian corporations to be given access to lucrative Iraqi reconstruction contracts, all of which are not available to Iraqis themselves. He is planning to sign on to the ridiculous and dangerous US Missile Defence plan which will lead to a new arms race and a much less secure world. We need to get back on the streets and tell the Liberals “Don’t sign on to US aggression!”

March 20 has been endorsed in countries all over the world as the next global day of protest to mark the one-year anniversary of the Iraq War. Thousands of anti-war campaigners at the European Social Forum and the 2nd International Cairo Conference have already endorsed March 20 and it was recently endorsed at a special global anti-war assembly at the World Social Forum in Mumbai, India.

Pre-events for March 20

Planning meeting for M20, Sunday Feb 8, 7 PM - Edmonton
ECAWAR (Edmonton Coalition Against War and Racism) is having a special general meeting 7-9 p.m on Sunday, February 8 at the Mennonite Centre for Newcomers. Working groups will be established for planning and publicizing the march and rally for March 20, 2004 to mark the one year anniversary of US/UK bombing and subsequent illegal occupation of Iraq. Volunteers welcome. For more information and contacts, call (780) 988-2713.

Upcoming events concerning National Missile Defense (NMD)

If Canada joins the Bush administration’s National Missile Defense (NMD) system, we may never be able to lay claim to being an international player for peace. Canada signing on will result in the joint weaponizing of space, proliferation and development of new nuclear weapons — a disaster for Canada’s foreign policy independence. Yet NMD has Paul Martin’s approval and may be approved as a fait accomplit shortly after his talks with George W. Bush.

Some upcoming events are taking place concerning what to do about NMD, and their organizers invite all to attend.

Ongoing Events and Campaigns
Every Thursday

The University of Alberta Coalition against War and Racism has been meeting almost every Thursday since Sept. 11, 2001, to keep antiwar awareness, voices and resistance alive at the U of A. Early in 2003, we staged the first big Edmonton demos against war on Iraq, before initiating the city-wide anti-war coalition (ECAWAR). Recently, we staged two Palestine awareness events. Several key organizers have moved on to other cities in Canada and the U.S., and we need more participation.
