TAKE ACTION TO SHOW SUPPORT FOR U.S. IRAQ WAR RESISTER KIMBERLY RIVERA!

TAKE ACTION TO SHOW SUPPORT FOR U.S. IRAQ WAR RESISTER KIMBERLY RIVERA!

 

 

 

Dear Friends and Supporters:

 

On September 20, U.S. Iraq War resister Kimberly Rivera and her family face deportation from Canada. As you know, if returned to the United States, Kimberly faces a court martial, jail time, a felony conviction, and separation from her family – including four children, two of whom were born in Canada –  for her refusal to participate in the immoral and illegal Iraq War.

While Kimberly and her lawyer are pursuing legal options, Canadians have been voicing their support for the Rivera family.

We are calling on you today to take further action to send a message to the Immigration Minister and the federal government. Let’s make it clear that Canadians overwhelmingly support Kimberly’s decision to refuse to be part of the Iraq War – and that we want her to stay.

 

Please go to http://change.org/letkimstay to read Kim’s request for support, then sign the letter to Minister Jason Kenney. Once you’ve signed it, you will be able to forward the link to friends, family, colleagues, and others to help spread the message.

We have a very short time to make sure that our voices are heard and that Kim and her family are not ripped apart because of our government’s actions.

In peace and solidarity,
