Monday, February 10, 2014 - 11:30 - 14:00

While the Canadian Minister of International Business, Mr. Edward Fast, will participate in a CORIM lunchtime conversation on Canada's commercial strategie on the world market, the network of international cooperation will stage a protest to denounce the rerouting of international aid funds towards the profit of Canadian commercial interests. Other local partners will be present as well.


COME PROTEST EN MASSE

Monday the 10th of February, 2014, from 11h30 in Montreal, in front of the Marriott Château Champlain Hotel (1050 Rue de la Gauchetière Ouest)

BRING A BLACK RIBBON, the symbol of this protest

  • because international aid is not a commercial enterprise;

  • because the government has severed dialogue between organizations of international cooperation.
