[Marxism] GLOBAL WEEK OF ACTION AGAINST WAR AND OCCUPATION (Mar 15 - 21 Vancouver)

For those of us in the Vancouver area...
Note the March 15 event on the racist / anti-Islamic
cartoons in a joint effort between Muslim community
and MAWO, an antiwar coalition. Is anyone aware of
events like this elsewhere? I think this event will be
interesting in light of the debates on the cartoons in
the left in Vancouver and through the world.
Comradely;
Ivan
