Have you ever had a great idea for a peace action but didn't have the resources to get started?
Or have you found an issue interesting but don't know if there exists groups in the city how are working on it?
Or are you an organizer in the movement and want to build relations with other groups?
In an effort to help build relationships within the peace movement in Calgary, we are holding regular events to bring different groups and individuals together.
When: Sunday, July 13 from 1pm - 3pm
Where: Arusha Centre (106, 223 - 12 Avenue SW)
The first hour will be an information session where groups or individuals can give short presentations (2-5 min long, depending on the number of participants) where they can tell people of actions they are planning, update people on the work they are doing and give specific information on an issue. Priority will be given to groups and individuals who rsvp.
The second hour will be moderated discussions on topics involving the peace movement. On July 13, we will discuss the connections that exist between the peace movement and other movements (such as the environment and poverty reduction).
All supporters of the peace movement are welcome to join us.

Mark your calendars - The next meeting will be held on Sunday, September 14.
This event is being organized by a coalition of concerned Calgarians that have come together on the beliefs that wars and occupations of countries are fundamentally wrong and that countries have a right to self-determination. Areas that we have been particularly involved in include the situations in Iraq, Afghanistan and Haiti and Canada's new militarism (including security certificates).
