You're invited to participate in this year's meeting of the Atlantic
Regional Solidarity Network, which will be held on the Mount Allison
University campus on Saturday, November 18, between 9:30 AM and 6:00 PM.

We will be looking at the relationships between the health of Earth's
ecosystems and political, economic, and militarized forces at play in the
Americas and their connection to human migration/displacement. There will
be brief presentations, discussions, a collaborative map-making exercise,
an ARSN "free school", and planning for possible actions and for next
year's ARSN gathering.
