LETTER WRITING CAMPAIGN

anon — April 1984

Since last month’s issue of The Peace Calendar, another six groups have joined the National Letter Writing Campaign. These include the Calgary Disarmament Coalition, Parents for Peace, the Denman Island Peace Group, Halton Hills Action for Nuclear Disarmament, Community Forum on Shared Responsibility, and our first group from Quebec Ploughshares Montreal. Also, several other newspapers and newsletters are now carrying the Letter. Writing suggestion. For example, the Voice of Women and Community Forum on Shared Responsibility are both including this month’s topic in their own newsletter. .

As mentioned in the March issue of The Peace Calendar, in order that the NLWC and the Peace Petition Caravan Campaign can both have greater impact over the next several months, the NWLC will dovetail its suggestions with the efforts of the PPCC. To this end, this month’s suggestion is to write lona Campagnola, president of the Liberal Party. In writing to her, please request that she ask each candidate for the Liberal Party leadership to endorse and work towards the objectives of the PPCC. Further, inform her that you would like to receive a letter from each of the candidates in which they state their position on each of the PPCC’s objectives. The objectives can be found in the petition on Page 12 of this issue.

No postage is required in writing to the Liberal Party president, and letters should be addressed to the House of Commons, Ottawa, On. K1A 0A6.

Finally, if your group is interested in becoming part of the NLWC, please write to me and let me know that your group endorses the concept and is willing to encourage peace activists in your community to write letters. Also, please send suggestions of individuals you would like to see targeted for letters. Happy letter-writing!

In peace,
