You are hereby invited to attend the Founding Assembly of the International League of Peoples’ Struggle (ILPS) – Canada Chapter this coming Saturday, May 21, 2011, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This will be a important opportunity to push forward the anti-imperialist struggle in Canada by uniting and coordinating the actions and voices of anti-imperialist militants from coast to coast to coast. The keynote speaker will be ILPS Chairperson, Prof. Jose Maria Sison.
Please confirm your participation at the founding assembly of the ILPS-Canada Chapter by Monday, May 16, so the Toronto organizing committee can finalize lodging and other arrangements. See contact list below. Rides from Montreal (and Ottawa) to Toronto available.
All anti-imperialist mass organizations in Canada who agree with the Charter of the International League of People’s Struggle and at least one of the 18 Concerns of the League are invited to apply for membership in the ILPS and to attend the Founding Assembly of the ILPS-Canada Chapter. Observers to the Assembly are also very welcome if you are interested in learning more about the organization.
Please contact ILPS-Canada members in your region (see contacts below for those closest to you) to arrange your participation in the ILPS-Canada Chapter Founding Assembly.
