Join Stopwar.ca, Vancouver’s broad anti-war coalition, for a forum to discuss the past, present, and future of Libya, the continuing struggle of the Libyan people for self -determination, and opposition to the continued NATO presence in Libya.
From the beginning of the uprising against the Gadaffi regime, Stopwar has supported their right of the Libyan people to a free and democratic society. For that reason, we opposed the NATO bombing of Libya. Freedom cannot be delivered by the armies and warplanes of NATO countries. These are the former colonial rulers of Libya who have propped up dictatorial regimes throughout the Middle East and North Africa and have brought ruin to Iraq and Afghanistan.
The overthrow of the Gaddafi regime does not end the struggle for freedom in Libya. A new stage now opens, in which the imperialist military and political presence are a serious threat to the Libyan peoples’ aspirations. We call on the Canadian government to cease its participation in the NATO intervention in Libya. We call on NATO to withdraw its military forces and advisers from Libya.
