*Black Out Speak Out* *Silence, on parle!*

*Black Out Speak Out* *Silence, on parle!*

Canadian Voice of Women for Peace exists to promote peace and justice.  We are proud today to join organizations across the county to  protest changes introduced in the federal government’s budget act (C-38) that undermine our goals and more fundamentally, our ability to work democratically, nonviolently for change.  When governments act in such autocratic ways, it feeds into the desperation that can lead to violence.  As a group that counts on the power of nonviolence, we feel we must speak out. Today we join  other organizations in a website blackout.

Visit BlackOutSpeakOut to join the campaign and to access tools to make your voice heard. Speak Out on twitter, facebook, and through your networks. Email or call your MP. And follow #blackoutspeakout during the day for updates and to join the conversation. In this historic Canadian moment, your voice has never been more important.
Thank you for speaking out and for standing up for Canada.
