Don't Let a Tragedy Turn Into a War sign now

DON’T LET A TRAGEDY TURN INTO A WAR The tragedy that occurred on September 11th in the US is unspeakable. Thousands of innocent people lost their lives and are being mourned worldwide. But the response of the US, Canadian and other NATO governments threatens to bring even more suffering to more innocent people. We cannot stand idly by while the western world prepares for war. To assume that war will in any way increase the safety and security of American, Canadian or other citizens is folly. If the threat of war turns into a reality, there will be increased bloodshed abroad and the threat of increased retaliation at home. Already the price of war hysteria is being paid as xenophobia and racism spread. Muslim and Hindu mosques in Quebec and Ontario have been set ablaze, and racist attacks including death threats have escalated against those of Muslim faith. This is all too reminiscent of the government inspired racism against Japanese Canadians that accompanied World War Two. The drive to war must be stopped. A new movement for global justice has emerged internationally with a vision of a world where the priority is human need, not corporate greed. This movement is taking on the root causes of the despair and injustice so many of the world's people feel that sadly gives rise to the type of terrorism we have recently witnessed. The bombing of Iraq in 1991 cost 200,000 Iraqi lives. The sanctions against that country have led to the deaths of an estimated 500,000 children. Ariel Sharon in 1982 led Israeli forces in an attack on Lebanon. Sharon’s forces surrounded the Sabra and Shatila Palestinian refugee camps allowing militia to slaughter 2,700 men, women and children. Today, Palestinians are the victims of continued genocidal attacks while Israel relies on US military support. We cannot fight terror with terror. There is still time to stop the juggernaut that is catapulting this country into participation in a barbaric war in the name of fighting terrorism. We call upon the Canadian government to refuse to participate in a war against Afghanistan or any other country. Don't let the US tragedy be an excuse for an even more tragic war. Signed:

    "In fact aggression and revenge are deliberately incited to fuel war. Every war is backed by political and military propaganda which fires anger, hatred and impulses to attack and retaliate. This serves at least two purposes: it allows armies to believe i
