Dear all, I've received this from the wonderful Irene Macinnes of Canada. She has asked me to circulate it. Please forward to all interested parties!

We would like to invite our European friends to join us in this exciting project as we think it will be very effective to have people from many other countries participating. It is a good way to build International solidarity. The caravan is starting on the west coast in Victoria on the 21 Sept. 2001 and commencing east across the country. It will be hosted by 27 Canadian and 5 US cities. A major part of this caravan will be the Omran school bus, named after a shepherd boy killed last year in one of the US bombings. The bus is decorated with slogans and a large illustration of an Iraqi child. There will be cars escorting this bus across the country. If you would like to participate in all, or any part of this caravan, all you need to do is to get yourself to Canada with just a little bit of money in your pocket, because lodging and most meals will be provided by the hosting cities, and the fuel costs for the vehicles will be provided by CANESI. The caravan is timing its arrival in Ottawa to coincide with the CANESI conference for activists on the 12/14th October. Hans Von Sponeck will be our special guest. A rally on the steps of Parliament to pressure our government not to follow US/UK policy, will follow on the next day, 15th Oct. The caravan will then proceed east, terminating in Quebec City on 19th October. If you are interested but would like more details, just e.mail me and I will respond to your questions as clearly as I can. The autumn is a beautiful time of the year in Canada by the way.
