National Mobilization Against the Arms Trade

May 29

Canada’s largest military trade show – CANSEC is happening in Ottawa on May 29th. Join us for a National Mobilization Against the Arms Trade! #shutdowncansec

May 29th
7AM at EY Centre
12PM Parliament Hill

CANSEC, the biggest military trade convention in North America, will once again be held in Ottawa, on May 29-30th, 2024. Join us in protesting and confronting the warmongers gathering to do business with the support of the Canadian government! Let’s get organized in exposing the war profiteers and demanding an independent, in-depth, and public inquiry into the activities of CADSI – the government-funded organizer of the military trade show – and its complicity in the ongoing genocide.

The weapons and other machinery which will be sold in Ottawa will be used to further corporate interests and murder people across the world. They will be deployed to devastate whole communities. This comes at a time when the Canadian government is committing to further increase its military spending, putting more money into war while people in Canada are barely able to afford rent and groceries.

We believe that it is critical that we organize ourselves against those that are not working for our interests. We have more in common with people that are being bombed and killed, than the ones profiting from it. Let’s stand with movements, from Palestine to the Philippines, from Yemen to Wet’suwet’en territory, struggling against the arms trade, and protest the military-industrial complex that profits from innocent blood.
