Canadians meet at World Citizens' Assembly in Los Aneeles

Ross Smyth — September 1984

LOS ANGELES – Four Canadians participated in the Fourth World Citizens’ Assembly held here from July 21 – 26.

The World Citizen’s Assembly, a gathering of global-minded representatives from many countries and organizations, first met in San Francisco in 1975, on the 30th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations. Subsequent assemblies were held in Paris (in 1977) and in Tokyo (in 1980).

The major resolution endorsed by this year’s Assembly concerned the launching of a dynamic world-wide campaign to abolish war. All peace groups throughout the world will be requested to use the term ‘Abolish War’ (or variations thereof) on banners, in peace marches, on letterheads and in speeches.

Although Canadian plans for an ‘abolish war’ program are in the very early stages, information may be obtained from the Committee on the Abolition of War, 46 Elgin St., Suite 32, Ottawa, ON., KIP 5K6.
