The goal of this site is to inform Canadians ...
... about the Harper Conservatives' destructive foreign policy. In effect, Harper`s Conservatives have designed Canadian foreign policy to please the most reactionary, short-sighted sectors of the Conservative Party’s base — evangelical Christian Zionists, extreme right-wing Jews, Islamophobes, the military-industrial-complex as well as mining and oil executives.
The second aim of this site ...
... is to build a coalition of concerned Canadians to challenge the Conservatives most extreme plans and gradually move Ottawa towards a foreign policy that more closely represents the majority of Canadians’ attitudes and interests. We want to build a coalition of the various organizations – from environmental to Latin American solidarity groups - already working on these issues. It’s our hope to spur a wide swath of groups and individuals into more consciously struggling against the Conservative’s foreign policy. If the campaign to Stop Harper’s Crimes Against Humanity gains traction, a popular tribunal with high profile judges to investigate Harper’s crimes against humanity should be organized. One medium-term goal of a cross-issue network could be to target five or six ridings where Conservative MPs are vulnerable and where the network can mobilize people to poster/leaflet/rally. After establishing the ridings, we should begin a concerted campaign in each of them to draw attention to Harper’s crimes against humanity. How about covering the chosen ridings with thousands of posters and stickers on issues ranging from climate justice to Palestinian rights and distributing leaflets in every mailbox?
We absolutely need to shake Canadians from their complacency.
Many people oppose the Conservatives' bid to undermine international climate negotiations and are uncomfortable with their unflinching support for Israeli policy. It’s time to turn that discomfort into anger and the anger into action.
