Report Back from Rally Endorsed & Supported by MAWO



Saturday February 22, 2014

In response to US-backed right wing violence in Venezuela over the past 2 weeks, on Saturday, February 23rd the Hugo Chavez Peoples Defense Front (HCPDF - Southwest Chapter) called for a Vancouver rally for peace and self-determination for Venezuela. This call coincided with a huge march of women in Venezuela against the right wing violence, as well as similar solidarity actions in Toronto and Montreal. Mobilization Against War and Occupation (MAWO) endorsed and actively supported this important demonstration.

STATEMENTS


HANDS OFF IRAN!
NO WAR ON IRAN!


February 1, 2012

Once again the United States and its little imperialist stooges like the UK, France and Canada are about to create another bloodbath in the Middle East, as they prepare for war and destruction against Iran. Iran is an independent sovereign country, whose heroic people have stood up for more than three decade against the U.S. and other imperialist countries’ aggression and intimidation. The Iranian people have been targeted simply for exercising their inalienable right to self-determination and living with dignity by rejecting imperialist bullying and domination. For more than thirty years, the U.S. and its allies have imposed all kinds of sanctions, war, sabotage and terror on the people of Iran, but they have never been able to force them to accept the terms and rules of imperial powers.

DON'T ATTACK LIBYA!

US, CANADA, UN, NATO
HANDS OFF LIBYA!

STOP NO-FLY ZONE
OVER LIBYA!


March 17, 2011

Yet again the United Nations Security Council, this criminal tool of the US war machine, decided to bring another sovereign country to the bloodbath. Today, Thursday, March 17th, the UN Security Council passed a resolution (10 for, and 5 abstaining), that not only imposes a no-fly zone over Libya, but in detail gives all possible options for imperialist countries to attack Libya with whatever they may see fit. With resolution 1973, the US, UK, Canada, France and all other imperialist countries declared war on the people of Libya. The United States of war, destruction and killing successfully brought together a coalition of war mongers under the shameless new fake term of the “International Community.” Immediately after passing resolution 1973, the United States, France, UK, Italy and NATO announced that they are ready to act and impose a no-fly zone and whatever necessary measure needed to be taken against Gaddhafi and the Libyan government. Here in Canada, Prime Minister Stephen Harper, not lagging behind, instantaneously announced that Canada will send 8 CF-18s fighter jets to help enforce the UN resolution of a no-fly zone over Libya. Furthermore, Canada's foreign affairs minister, Lawrence Cannon, stated “Canada is open to all options”, and when asked if this means deploying troops on the ground he responded, “protecting citizens that are being literally murdered by Gaddhafi, is what the resolution calls for."

MAWO'S OPEN LETTER TO STOPWAR.CA AND THE CANADIAN PEACE ALLIANCE (CPA)
April 14, 2011

To Stopwar.ca and the
Canadian Peace Alliance (CPA),

We in Mobilization Against War and Occupation (MAWO) are sending you this open correspondence to express the grave concerns we have with your organizing of the April 9th demonstration in Vancouver. Your approach and politics on this day were without a doubt against the spirit of building an antiwar, anti-occupation movement not only in Canada but throughout the world. Imperialist countries and their military fronts such as NATO are beginning to sink their teeth into Libya while continuing the brutal wars and occupations in Afghanistan, Iraq, Haiti, Ivory Coast, Somalia, Sudan, Palestine and beyond. This is a crucial time for the antiwar movement and we need an open and honest discussion or risk seeing further capitulation to the pro-imperialist political and military campaign against Libya.
