May 16, Mothers’ Day: Julia Ward Howe, who first created Mothers Day, designated it as a day for peace. This noble ideal was lost as the day became commercialized. This year we’re turning back to the original purpose. Mothers and grandmothers will send photographs of their children to Mrs. Reagan and Mrs. Andropov that day, asking them to appeal to their husbands to save these children from nuclear war. Promote the idea among your friends.

Look Forward to:

The Salt Spring Island (B.C.) Nuclear Disarmament Group is planning a caravan for peace this summer. Groups will start from both the east and west coasts of Canada, picking up new participants along the way and holding rallies to promote peace. They will meet in Ottawa. If you’re interested, contact Don Erickson at 604-xxx-xxxx.

Save August 28, 1983 for a trip to Washington, D.C. A major demonstration is being planned and will be described further in later issues.

The city of Vancouver will send out a leaflet to all households, describing the consequences of a nuclear attack.

“Institutions for Peace vs. Instruments of War,” Panelists: George Ignatieff, Douglas Roche, Norman Alcock, William Epstein and Arnold Simoni. Moderator: Metta Spencer.

Find out why disarmament is inseparable from U.N. reform and the creation of a reliable international security system. This symposium will change the way you think about disarmament. Sponsored by the United Nations Association, World Federalists of Canada and Toronto 2000. May 14, 1.00 p.m., O.I.S.E. Auditorium. Registration $10. Pay-what-you-can scholarships available.
