Oct. 22 -- International Day of Protest

anon — October 1983

Robert Penner, spokesperson for the Toronto ACT/TDN October 22nd Campaign is pleased with the support the demonstration has received. He notes that several constituencies will be participating for the first time on October 22nd, and that support from labour, women’s, church and student groups is more evident than for past demonstrations.

The recent decision that the anti-cruise groups, led by Operation Dismantle, will be able to present their case against the testing in court has given organising efforts for October 22 a real boost, according to many organisers around the country. The international aspect of the protest is also creating interest and excitement. The efforts of the Canadian disarmament movement have attracted the attention of peace organisations in other countries, and it is recognised that Canada is playing an important part in the world-wide movement. According to noted British historian and peace activist E.P. Thompson, “it’s not cruise missiles that are being tested here; it’s Canadians who’ are being tested. Your peace movement doesn’t realise how important it is:’ On October 22, the Canadian peace movement will rise to Thompson’s challenge.
