On October 20th, Mayor Diane Watts, the Surrey Board of Trade and Surrey City Council have invited known war criminals George W. Bush and Bill Clinton to speak (for $150,000 in fees, each!) at the Surrey Regional Economic Summit. We reject their economic, social and political strategies. Come and join with us and many others who will be standing up to this bullying. Early in the morning of Thursday, October 20th (breakfast ~ 6:30) around the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel, 15269 104th Avenue, in Surrey.

Surrey is Occupied Indigenous Territory; This economic summit, near their massive freeway building project, is an obscenity to the traditional lands of the Katzie, Kwantlen, Musqueam, Semiahmoo & Tsawassen peoples.
