My city feels like a crime scene and the criminals are all
melting into the night, fleeing the scene. No, I'm not talking about the
kids in black who smashed windows and burned cop cars on Saturday.
I'm talking about the heads of state who, on Sunday night, smashed social
safety nets and burned good jobs in the middle of a recession. Faced with
the effects of a crisis created by the world's wealthiest and most privileged
strata, they decided to stick the poorest and most vulnerable people in
their countries with the bill. More...

We Need an Exit Strategy,
Not an Escalation! Sending more troops to Afghtanistan
Prop a corrupt Karzai government which is largely viewed as totally
unrepresentative of the people of Afghanistan — thereby widening the
distance between the government and its people and making the goal of
democracy further unattainable
Provide the Taliban greater recruiting power and legitimacy since
locals view US/ NATO troops as "occupiers" of their land
Not help the US find Al Qaeda targets, who are now rumored to have
Not improve the security situation, the poor economy and erosion
in women's rights
Our govenment must take bold and compassionate action to address the
Afghan's real need for health care, jobs, education and security by providing
humanitarian assistance through non-governmental organizations, instead
of continuing to cripple the country with more years of war. More...

This is a special time for Code Pink Toronto. We're very excited to support
the vast anti-war activities in the city but the most exciting thing is
watching the dynamic process of our collective energies start to form
something special and another distinct group working for peace. We know
that our voice will add to the song for peace here in Toronto. Let's continue
to get to know one another and create!
To members of VOW, The War Resisters Support Campaign, and Homes not
Bombs for the info, company, inspiration.
Vietnam War Resisters here in Canada: Where are they
and can we work with them?
Hillside Music Festival: Last weekend in July? Want
to go? Camp on the Island?
Get Involved! Below is a list of projects and invitations that sprung
out of our first meeting:
Website: Please continue to see the website as our space!
Send us any ideas you have that you would like to add to the website.
Border issue: Code Pink activists have been denied entry
to Canada. This is an important issue not only for Code Pink but for democracy
and freedom of protest.
Street Theatre: We already have a talented puppetry
artist who has joined Code Pink and some of us have either background
in theatre or a love of it!
War Resisters Support Campaign: American soldiers who
had the courage to stand up and stop fighting in Iraq are currently in
Canada as they cannot return to the US without facing imprisonment. But
they may soon be sent home to the US as Canada is refusing to offer them
safety contrary to our past traditions.
Leafleting and Education: Help us get the word out there
and have fun at various Toronto Hot Spots and on special days!!
Film: We'd like to raise awareness with a Film festival
hopefully in the spring – a festival involving other groups and dedicated
to peace and our spring peace fever!!
Random Art-Protest-What you are inspired for – Let us know and
you've got our support!!
Contact: With the exception of the website, contact
Dre at torontocodepink[at]yahoo.ca and she'll
put you in contact with the right project. Join what inspires you or send
CODEPINK is a women-initiated grassroots peace and social justice movement working to end U.S. funded wars and occupations, to challenge militarism globally, and to redirect our resources into health care, education, green jobs and other life-affirming activities. The name CODEPINK satirized the Bush Administration's color-coded, fear-mongering "security" alert system that has since been phased out. CODEPINK is a lively call for the people of the world to "wage peace." More...
