About the Event

#NoWar2021 is a unique event that brings together a global grassroots coalition of individuals and organizations around the topic of CANSEC and the global arms trade. As North America’s largest weapons expo, CANSEC typically brings together 12,000+ government and military officials and weapons industry reps from 55 countries to Ottawa each year. Due to the coronavirus pandemic and pressure from our coalition, CANSEC 2020-2021 has been postponed to 2022. But that doesn’t mean our work is over. We’re demanding the permanent cancellation of CANSEC and also drawing attention to the fact that CANSEC is a symptom of a larger problem – Canada’s and the world’s complicity in the global arms trade and the institution of war.

Instead of pouring trillions into weaponry, the world must invest in a just recovery from the pandemic and a green new deal that includes a just transition for arms industry workers. #NoWar2021 will bring together key international allies to not only assist Canadian efforts to permanently #CancelCANSEC but also to share expertise from similar campaigns worldwide in the global struggle for war abolition.

Panels, discussion groups, workshops, and trainings will cover a range of topics, such as: how to shut down a weapons expo, weapons in space, the global arms trade, war’s environmental footprint, divestment, digital storytelling, nonviolent civil resistance, and more.
