Alison Bodine update

Late Saturday night, antiwar activist Alison Bodine, originally prevented from re-entering Canada because of a box of antiwar material in her car, was forced to leave Canada. Testifying to the importance of this case, just before midnight on Saturday, 70 people accompanied her to the border. They vow to continue the fight, both legally and politically, demanding that her two-year ban be lifted and she be allowed to return to Canada.

Your help is still needed for the political part of the fight. Petitions, letters, emails, and so on are all needed, as are speaking engagements to help spread the word (the day before she left, Bodine was able to address the BC convention of the NDP, again, testimony to the importance of this case).

The antiwar struggle should know no borders!
