[Sust-mar] October 28th: "Bring the Troops Home Now" National Day of Action
stu.neatby at gmail.com
Tue Oct 3 11:13:46 EDT 2006
As a plug, this is pretty clearly an environmental issue, quite apart from
the environmental damage done by the bombing campaign throughout Kandahar
and the use of Depleted Uranium munitions. At the same time that the Harper
gov't is cutting environmental programs across Canada, and leaning towards a
withdrawel from the Kyoto Protocol, $30 Billion in new spending on military
procurements have been pledged by the Harper government (the announcement
were made here in Halifax) over the summer.
To borrow (and perhaps mangle) a phrase from Martin Luther King "Every bomb
dropped over Panjwaii explodes over Halifax Harbour"
