CANADA: BAN THE BOMB! ON JUNE 17

June 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Plan an event in your city on Saturday, June 17 and join in solidarity with the Women’s March to Ban the Bomb in New York on the same day: https://www.womenbanthebomb.org/ Historic UN negotiations started at the UN in March for a convention to ban nuclear weapons but Canada is shamefully NOT participating. Read “Justin Trudeau lacks leadership on UN nuclear talks” by Linda McQuaig in the Toronto Star: https://www.thestar.com/opinion/commentary/2017/04/13/justin-trudeau-lacks-leadership-on-un-nuclear-talks-mcquaig.html Call on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to join these important international talks to abolish nuclear weapons and protect people and the planet: justin.trudeau@parl.gc.ca

In Victoria on Saturday, June 17 from 12:00-1:00 p.m., meet at the Legislature, 501 Belleville St. and please wear white, we will hold a banner “Ban the Bomb” and take a big group picture.

Organized by the Vancouver Island Peace & Disarmament Network and the Canadian Voice of Women for Peace, for more information please contact Tamara Lorincz tlorincz@dal.ca
