April 28 protest planned

Jon Spencer — April 1984

Saturday, April 28 has been set as the date for this year’s spring peace demonstrations, which will be held in cities across Canada.

In February, Angela Browning, chairperson of Toronto’s Against Cruise Testing (ACT) coalition, completed a networking tour of western Canadian cities, which generated support for the March and April demonstrations.

Response was enthusiastic, and Browning feels optimistic about the April 28 protest. Some cities re-scheduled their’ annual peace demonstrations in order to take part in the greater impact of a nationwide action.

The focus of the April 28 demonstration will be to protest the testing of the guidance system of the cruise missile over Canada. However, several cities will focus on other themes in addition to this central focus. In Regina, the marchers will also be protesting uranium mining, and Vancouver will hold its, annual Walk for Peace.

In Toronto, for the first time, the organizers have obtained a permit for Yonge St. The march is being co-sponsored by the Toronto Disarmament Network and PPCC-Toronto, and the organizers feel that the demonstration will benefit from the increased visibility on Yonge.

Details of the April 28 demonstrations can be found in the Event Calendar on pages 4 and 5 of this issue, or by calling ACT in Toronto at 416/xxx-xxxx.
