DERAIL THE SPIRIT OF THE OLYMPIC SPIRIT TRAIN
ALL OUT ON OCTOBER 13 - THANKSGIVING MONDAY

On October 13, 2008, the CPR (Canadian Pacific Railway)’s ‘Spirit Train’
will be arriving at Cooksville GO Transit Station in Mississauga, here to
continue its goal of spreading pre-Olympic “spirit”.

The Vancouver Winter Olympics 2010 are appropriating indigenous land,
marginalizing the urban poor and exploiting migrant workers.

The 2010 Olympics spirit that this train carries is a spirit of racism and
corporate greed. This spirit has met with opposition in each of its stops
across the country.

This spirit of oppression needs to be met with our spirit of resistance.

When it stops in Mississauga, come out with pots, pans, whistles, flags
and placards. As most of Canada gives thanks for the ongoing genocide of
indigenous peoples on Turtle Island, we urge all allies to mobilize their
communities to disrupt the Spirit Train in solidarity with the call for
Indigenous sovereignty.

Free buses will be leaving Hart House (79 Hart House Circle, University of
Toronto) at 12:00 pm on Monday, October 13, returning at 3pm.

To confirm a spot or to share your solidarity, please email
nooneisillegal@riseup.net before Sunday, 12 October.

NO OLYMPICS ON STOLEN NATIVE LAND!
