First Meeting of the War Resisters Support Campaign of Niagara

War resisters are American soldiers, who after experiencing the horrors of the Iraq war, had to get out. They deemed military desertion their only option. Canadians have spoken clearly through polls and through Parliament that the majority want US war resisters to be allowed to stay in Canada. There are war resisters here in the Niagara region who want to tell their stories and are looking for community support and encouragement. Come out and meet a local war resister family at the first meeting of the War Resisters Support Campaign of Niagara. The group will be planning events in the next several months.

Thursday, November 18 · 7:30pm - 9:30pm
The Hub (inside the Guild Hall)
72 Charlotte Street
Port Colborne, ON
