Dear Canada: Let U.S. War Resisters Stay!

Vigil and Delegation to Support GI Resisters
Canadian Consulate in San Francisco

Wednesday, July 9th, 2008
Noon to 1 pm lunchtime vigil
Followed by delegation visit

Recently on June 3rd the Canadian Parliament passed an historic motion to officially welcome war resisters! It now appears, however, that the Conservative government may disregard the motion.

Iraq combat veteran turned courageous war resister, 25-year-old Sgt. Corey Glass of the Indiana National Guard is still scheduled to be deported July 10th.

We will ask that the Canadian government respect the democratic decision of Parliament, the demonstrated opinion of the Canadian citizenry, the view of the United Nations, and millions of Americans by immediately implementing the motion and cease deportation proceedings against Corey Glass and other current and future war resisters.

Join Courage to Resist, Veterans for Peace, and Project Safe Haven at Canadian Consulates across the United States (New York City, Seattle, Minneapolis, and Los Angeles confirmed--more to be announced).

We mailed and delivered over 10,000 of the original letters to Canadian officials. Please sign the new letter, "Dear Canada: Abide by resolution - Let U.S. war resisters stay!"
