shine). After there is a peace cake reception (with a gourmet chocolate cake
from Le French Fix and with appetizers and a vegan cake from the Wooden

Sept. 5. and we might not see you again! It has been a long relationship
with Sust-Mar :)

A People’s History of Nova Scotia: A conference by Solidarity Halifax
October 4-5 This conference will unite radical stories of resistance in Nova
Scotia, and present history as a site of tension, failure and change, not
simply as an object for consumption. The conference will honour the
particularities of our movements, while creating an opportunity to examine
our struggles collectively from an anti-capitalist perspective. Knowing our
legacy of left resistance in Nova Scotia will help us push further and
harder in our current struggles.
Speakers include: George Elliot Clarke, Lynn Jones, Pat Kipping, Evan Coole
and more! Together they will tell stories of occupations, strikes, and
liberation movements, and of big wins, hard losses, and pivotal lessons. The
conference will also honour the memory of Rocky Jones. 
Mark your calendar!
6pm – 9pm, Friday, October 4, 2013
9am – 4pm, Saturday, October 5, 2013

DEMILITARIZE: http://www.demilitarize.ca BLOG "Wednesdays against Warships":

"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired
signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not
fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not
spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius
of its scientists, the hopes of its children." - Former US President D.
Eisenhower, 1953
