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 12:00 noon to 12:30 pm

 

ON SCARTH STREET AT 11TH AVENUE

 

                                                         EVERYONE IS WELCOME

 

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

 

·          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 world wide
