NO WAR MEASURES ACT! Media in Canada seems to be pushing for it, but think about what it means. Army in the streets, police making random checks, raiding homes. Stop congratulating China, which can be blamed for allowing conditions where the virus thrived in the first place. Second, the official word of China cannot be trusted; it is notorious for misrepresenting the truth. It is evident China authorities suppressed doctors' warnings of the new virus in the beginning, punishing them for saying anything about it. Finally, let's look at China's enforcement: random body temperature checks done and anyone just with a high temperature hauled away by the police. (They can be many explanations for a fever.) Police welding doors to residences shut. People with other serious medical conditions not able to exit homes.
END GENERAL ECONOMIC SANCTIONS NOW!
Statement for Global Days against Sanctions that Harm the People
Some solidarity and social justice organizations called for a global weekend of actions from March 13 to 15. The Venezuela Peace and Solidarity Committee of Vancouver (VPSC) joins in the actions against the blanket sanctions imposed by US imperialism and its allies that mostly aim to weaken states and movements of the people that stand up to imperialist interference, plunder and exploitation. Far from securing peace, human rights and economic development, they cause shortages of daily necessities and hardship to the working people.
Solidarity for the people of Bolivia!
At the international, anti-imperialist conference held in Caracas on Jan. 24, Pres. Maduro announced a call for a global day of solidarity with the Bolivian people, citing February 25.
The Venezuela Peace and Solidarity Committee of Vancouver joins in expressing strong solidarity with the people of Bolivia. We deplore the recent coup that destroyed the advancement of Bolivian people's quality of life, independence and rights. We support the people's movement, especially that of the indigenous people, lead by the champion of workers', farmers' and indigenous peoples' rights, the unjustly ousted President Evo Morales.
POWER in the USA
-a child of the US
imperialist military-industrial complex; profits and service to corporations
and the military come before people
reactors are dangerous, however used, because of their potential for colossal
explosions. For this reason, both nuclear weaponry and nuclear energy have been
sharply criticized from the very beginning of the development of this
technology. Objections to science being subordinated to both military and
commercial interests abound. Nevertheless, nuclear armed weapons and nuclear
power stations have proliferated.

global wave of opposition to the US imperialism’s latest act of terror and
aggression washed through Iraq and throughout the Middle East, around Europe
and in many cities in North America on January 4 and 5. Commission 4 of the
ILPS salutes this staunch response and encourages more action to show
solidarity for just peace and deter an outbreak of global or regional war in
response. We applaud the Iraq government’s resolution to get US forces out of
Iraq as we do NATO’s decision to suspend the NATO mission led by Canadian
forces in Iraq.
I am active in just peace activism and anti-imperialist solidarity. One way I partake in this kind of activity is through my Just Peace Committee and its role in a local Venezuela solidarity committee.
I attended a huge conference for Latin American solidarity with the people against coup attempts, right wing resurgences, state repression, unjustified economic sanctions that hurt the people, militarization and the threat of military invasions. OUt of that conference came a declaration of solidarity against US-led imperialism and pledges to support particular struggles of people in Latin America and the Caribbean regions.
Just passed another birthday and the calendar year is closing. Time to review the year.
I always review my goals and see what I accomplished or changed. I refer to both short (1-year and 5-year) and long term (10 years).
What's more, I consider a few categories of life: finances, career, social, travel, health, activism.
I've had a steady income from self-employment and employment, working generally part-time, with a few relatively high-income months. My savings have remained frozen this year.
The coup in Bolivia: Five lessons
THE Bolivian tragedy eloquently offers us lessons that our peoples and popular social and political forces must learn and record in our consciousness forever.

war is still a constant, major problem for humanity. The International League
of Peoples’ Struggles (ILPS; ilps.info) supports the just struggles of the
peoples for national liberation, genuine democracy and a decent standard of
living. We condemn militarization, bigotry and wars of aggression and
