War Resisters Update, Film Night and Fundraising Dinner
Despite enormous efforts by Canadians from coast to coast, U.S. Iraq War resister Kimberly Rivera and her family were forced to leave Canada on September 20.
Canadians are shocked and angered that our government did not allow Kim’s humanitarian and compassionate application to be processed before she was forced to leave. She is currently being detained and awaiting punishment at the hands of the U.S. military.
The callousness of the Harper government – who applauded the news of Kim’s forced return to the U.S. – has made many people more determined than ever to fight to ensure that no other Iraq War resisters suffer the same fate.
Please join the War Resisters Support Campaign for dinner, a campaign update and a screening of the film Soldiers of Peace by Denis Mueller.
