Demonstrations all across Canada

Precious lives and scarce dollars are being wasted on the futile war in Afghanistan, peace activists cried out during marches and rallies across the country on Saturday.

Dozens of anti-war activists paraded onto Parliament Hill to demand an end to Canada's Afghan mission, part of a national day of action organized by peace groups that object to the human and financial costs of the bloody conflict. ...

Demonstrations are being held this weekend in about 15 cities.

A few dozen protesters held signs with slogans like Aid not Arms for Afghanistan and Afghanistan is Bleeding in Edmonton's Churchill Square as they listened to speakers from the Edmonton Coalition Against War and Racism, the Council of Canadians and the Alberta Federation of Labour. ...

Protesters in St. John's, N.L., met in Bannerman Park and marched through the downtown area. ...

In Montreal, hundreds turned out to demand Canadian troops come home and shine a light on the dollars-and-cents costs of a growing defence establishment.
