The pressure is mounting every day on Stephen Harper’s pro-war plan to waste more than 9 billion public dollars on U.S.-built F-35 stealth fighters.
These planes are designed to launch “shock and awe” bombing campaigns, just like President George W. Bush’s disastrous attack on Baghdad. Canada does not need these attack weapons.
The F-35 stealth fighter program is a complete fiasco. The planes are late, they perform poorly, and the cost is rising.
But while other countries wisely scale back their F-35 plans, Harper’s government goes ahead blindly with its multi-billion-dollar plan to buy 65 F-35 stealth fighters, even while the government threatens our social programs and pensions with cuts.
This is the time to say clearly to Stephen Harper, “No stealth fighters.”

If a bunch of street toughs decided to gang up and beat the crap out of some guy in the neighborhood because they feared he might be planning to buy a gun to protect his family, I think we’d all agree that the police would be right to bust that crew and charge them with conspiracy to commit the crime of assault and battery. If they went forward with their plan and actually did attack the guy, injuring or killing him in the process, we’d also all agree they should all be charged with assault and battery, attempted murder, or even first-degree murder if he died.

The purpose of both is to begin factually explaining what Occupy points to:
A “1%” oligarchy within economics, government, and media have transferred wealth from the 99% to themselves. This has been, and is today, massive criminal fraud costing the “99%” trillions of their dollars every year.
People who can document these crimes are doing so, AND public civic participation is required to build a brighter future for 100% of Earth’s inhabitants.
