The 5th annual Halifax International Security Forum will be convened on November 22–24 as a platform for warmongering and empire building of US imperialism and the NATO bloc, in which the Harper government is fully embroiled. The first 2009 forum was dedicated to popularizing NATO’s then new ‘security doctrine.’ Ensuing forums have provided a stage to justify NATO’s ‘humanitarian intervention’ in Libya and Africa, Syria and Iran.

Warmongers from more than 40 countries will join Canadian Defence Minister Rob Nicholson, US Defense Security Chuck Hagel and some 300 others at the Washington , DC based Forum “to learn from each other, share opinions, generate new ideas, and put them into action.”

Among the sessions are:

The West Today: Calculated Power or Complete Paralysis?; If Democracies Won’t, Alternatives will: Reviving Global Responsibility; From India to the Americas: The Trials and Tribulations of a New Pacific Order; African Security: Where is the Next Mali?; Drone: Japan’s Abe, Abe’s Japan; Russia: Bear With Us (Or Against Us);Trade as a weapon: the art of Economic Statecraft; Yes We Scan: Privacy and/or Security in a Democracy.

It is unacceptable that Halifax or any other city, be used as a venue to plan crimes against the peace and the peoples of the world. Bring your banners , bring your music and statements, and most of all bring your friends to oppose this war conference.
