Fasts and hunger strikes are a time-honored form of political resistance and non-violent protest. Join our webinar to learn more about this powerful tool for justice from those who have used it to campaign against violence, and for prisoner justice, climate action, and demilitarization. We will also announce an upcoming fast in April 2021 to oppose Canada's planned purchase of 88 bomber planes and share information on how you can get involved.

Speakers include:

  • Kathy Kelly – American peace activist, pacifist and author, three-time nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize
  • Souheil Benslimane – Abolitionist, prisoner and migrant justice organizer, Coordinator of the Jail Accountability and Information Line (JAIL) hotline, member of the Criminalization and Punishment Education Project (CPEP) and the Ottawa Sanctuary Network (OSN)
  • Lyn Adamson – lifelong activist, co-founder of ClimateFast, National Co-Chair of Canadian Voice of Women for Peace
