MAKING PEACE VIGIL

Bearing witness to our society’s involvement in violence and injustice

Committing ourselves to creative action for change

Every Thursday

until peace breaks out

From 12 noon to 12:30 pm

On Scarth Street at 11th Avenue 

EVERYONE IS WELCOME

The Making Peace Vigil is loosely modeled on Women in Black. We are committed to peace and justice and to opposing war and all forms of violence and injustice.

Our vigil takes the form of standing once a week, at the same hour and at the same location, holding a banner, carrying placards, and handing out leaflets.

 The vigil protests a range of issues on the national, provincial, and local levels: 

  • The deployment of Canada’s military in Afghanistan
  • Canadian Pension Plan investments in corporations making weapons
  • Saskatchewan’s involvement in the uranium industry
  • The suspension of human and civil rights in the name of national security
  • The failure of the Canadian government to settle First Nations land claims
  • Social inequity in housing and employment in Regina
  • Violence against women in Canada and worldwide
  • The lack of a national early learning and child care program
  • The unequal distribution of wealth both in Canada and worldwide
  • War against the earth systems that give us life
