The cross-Canada “On to Ottawa Peace Caravan 2024”

The cross-Canada On to Ottawa Peace Caravan 2024 is a positive action to lift us out of helplessness and overwhelm in the face of so many wars. We see their disastrous impact on people and Earth. We don’t believe the false promise that billions spent on war and militarization will bring us security. We do believe that peace is not a dream. It is an achievable reality, demanding more effort.”

The message the Caravan carries across Canada to Parliament Hill is: DEMILITARIZE. DECOLONIZE. DECARBONIZE.

    • May 12 (Mother’s Day) the West Coast Peace Caravan departs from Vancouver
    • May 25 the East Coast Peace Caravan departs from Halifax
    • May 28 the On to Ottawa Peace Caravan will converge in Ottawa for a peace rally and teach in, just in time for the huge CANSEC military weapons trade show.
    • May 29-30 a broad movement of activists, will protest and focus attention on CANSEC, Canada’s largest weapons trade show, held annually in Ottawa, and the need to demilitarize domestic and global economies.

As the Caravan travels from Coast to Coast, they will make various stops to meet other activists, gather strength and encouragement for the Caravan’s messages. In some locations, members will hold teach-ins and workshops. [Click here for TBA] the full Caravan Enroute schedule, updates and more details about our demands.
