Student Coalition Against War (SCAW)
Activities All Week!

In Ottawa the recently formed Student Coalition Against War (SCAW) has called for a large student presence during the international days of action against the occupation of Iraq on March 19 and 20 ˆ the second anniversary of the invasion of Iraq.

The Ottawa coalition of students have set out four key goals: to link-up with student bodies across the Ottawa region; to build a large student presence at the March 19 events in Ottawa; to promote and use mass participatory non-violent civil disobedience; to use creative actions.

SCAW has already called for two specific student oriented events:

Wednesday March 16 - all schools (high-schools, colleges, universities, CEGEPs, etc.) are encouraged to host interactive events in their school setting to raise awareness and build for March 19. Some potential ideas could include simulation military checkpoints, a video showing, a war crimes trial simulation

SCAW can provide schools with resources and ideas to organize events

Saturday March 19 - Prior to joining the 1pm city-wide rally and march at Minto Park, students will be hosting their own event at 11am starting at Morisset Library at the University of Ottawa. The event is being called a “Student Occupation Against Military Occupation” and will involve a creative 1 hour occupation of the Rideau and Sussex intersection.

We encourage all students, student unions, student clubs and societies, and interested persons to participate in SCAW events.
