CODEPINK Press Release, June 30, 2010:
Wave of Political Repression and Violence Sweeps Toronto in Wake of G20 Summit

Sticking the public with the bill for the bankers' crisis: One-hundred-dollar U.S. notes How else can we interpret the G20 communiqué that includes not even a measly tax on financial transactions? By Naomi Klein, Globe and Mail, June 28, 2010

My city feels like a crime scene and the criminals are all melting into the night, fleeing the scene. No, I'm not talking about the kids in black who smashed windows and burned cop cars on Saturday.

I'm talking about the heads of state who, on Sunday night, smashed social safety nets and burned good jobs in the middle of a recession. Faced with the effects of a crisis created by the world's wealthiest and most privileged strata, they decided to stick the poorest and most vulnerable people in their countries with the bill.

Eight Years in Afghanistan: How Many More?

We Need an Exit Strategy, Not an Escalation!
Sending more troops to Afghtanistan will:

  1. Prop a corrupt Karzai government which is largely viewed as totally unrepresentative of the people of Afghanistan — thereby widening the distance between the government and its people and making the goal of democracy further unattainable
  2. Provide the Taliban greater recruiting power and legitimacy since locals view US/ NATO troops as "occupiers" of their land
  3. Not help the US find Al Qaeda targets, who are now rumored to have left Afghanistan
  4. Not improve the security situation, the poor economy and erosion in women's rights

Our govenment must take bold and compassionate action to address the Afghan's real need for health care, jobs, education and security by providing humanitarian assistance through non-governmental organizations, instead of continuing to cripple the country with more years of war. More...

Our Vision

This is a special time for Code Pink Toronto. We're very excited to support the vast anti-war activities in the city but the most exciting thing is watching the dynamic process of our collective energies start to form something special and another distinct group working for peace. We know that our voice will add to the song for peace here in Toronto. Let's continue to get to know one another and create!

Special Thanks

To members of VOW, The War Resisters Support Campaign, and Homes not Bombs for the info, company, inspiration.

Ideas Brewing

Vietnam War Resisters here in Canada: Where are they and can we work with them?

Hillside Music Festival: Last weekend in July? Want to go? Camp on the Island?

Get Involved! Below is a list of projects and invitations that sprung out of our first meeting:

Website: Please continue to see the website as our space! Send us any ideas you have that you would like to add to the website.

Border issue: Code Pink activists have been denied entry to Canada. This is an important issue not only for Code Pink but for democracy and freedom of protest.

Street Theatre: We already have a talented puppetry artist who has joined Code Pink and some of us have either background in theatre or a love of it!

War Resisters Support Campaign: American soldiers who had the courage to stand up and stop fighting in Iraq are currently in Canada as they cannot return to the US without facing imprisonment. But they may soon be sent home to the US as Canada is refusing to offer them safety contrary to our past traditions.

Leafleting and Education: Help us get the word out there and have fun at various Toronto Hot Spots and on special days!!

Film: We'd like to raise awareness with a Film festival hopefully in the spring – a festival involving other groups and dedicated to peace and our spring peace fever!!

Random Art-Protest-What you are inspired for – Let us know and you've got our support!!

Contact: With the exception of the website, contact Dre at torontocodepink[at] and she'll put you in contact with the right project. Join what inspires you or send another idea!!
