Global Day of Protest: No War On Iran – Waterloo @ Waterloo Public Square
Jan 25 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Global Day of Protest: No War On Iran - Waterloo @ Waterloo Public Square

There will be a peace rally in solidarity with the Global Day of Protest “No War On Iran!” on Saturday, January 25 from 2:00-3:00 p.m. at the Waterloo Public Square.

We do not want another war in the Middle East.

We say “No War On Iran.”

We want US-NATO-Canadian soldiers and special forces out of Iraq. We need de-escalation and diplomacy. The Canadian government should urge the US to rejoin the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action and end its crippling sanctions against Iran. We want peace with Iran and peace throughout the Middle East. The Waterloo action is organized by KW Peace, WR Nonviolence and the Canadian Voice of Women for Peace. Rallies are taking place at the same time across the country and around the world.

UN World Day of Social Justice
Feb 20 all-day

Each year, 20 February is the United Nations FlagUnited Nations World Day for Social Justice.

Social justice is an underlying principle for peaceful and prosperous coexistence within and among nations. We uphold the principles of social justice when we promote gender equality or the rights of indigenous peoples and migrants. We advance social justice when we remove barriers that people face because of gender, age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture or disability.

For the United Nations, the pursuit of social justice for all is at the core of our global mission to promote development and human dignity. The adoption by the International Labour Organization of the Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair Globalization is just one recent example of the UN system’s commitment to social justice. The Declaration focuses on guaranteeing fair outcomes for all through employment, social protection, social dialogue, and fundamental principles and rights at work.

The General Assembly proclaimed 20 February as World Day of Social Justice in 2007, inviting Member States to devote the day to promoting national activities in accordance with the objectives and goals of the World Summit for Social Development and the twenty-fourth session of the General Assembly. Observance of World Day of Social Justice should support efforts of the international community in poverty eradication, the promotion of full employment and decent work, gender equity and access to social well-being and justice for all.
