LETTER: Peace group wants Canada to withdraw from NATO

KAIROS calls for radical changes to achieve world peace

At a recent meeting, the BC Southern Interior Peace Coalition resolved that Canada adopt a foreign policy without military alliances, which would mean withdrawal from NATO, presently the biggest threat to world peace, in part because it is committed to first strike and pre-emptive doctrines.

The coalition further resolved that Canada cut funding to countries and organizations involved in war and the violation of human rights.

Finally, it was resolved that Canada work for nuclear disarmament and a culture of peace, relieving poverty and promoting international understanding in a nonviolent manner.

KAIROS (Kootenay Subregion, BC/Yukon), a member of the BCSIPC, works for peace, environmental justice and human rights in Canada and the world. For further information, please have a look at our website at kairoscanada.org
