                                           99 NGOs endorse COAT's
festival of nonviolence, Oct.6

                            Updated list: 99 NGOs have now endorsed
COAT's "No to NATO: Festival of Creative NonViolence"

                            As of September 4, the Coalition to Oppose
the Arms Trade (COAT) has
                            received almost 100 NGO endorsements for our
"No to NATO: Festival of
                            Creative Nonviolence," to be held on October
6 (1-5 pm), in Majors Hill
                            Park, Ottawa.

                            Some of the endorsers are large national
organizations (like the Canadian
                            Auto Workers, the Canadian Federation of
Students, the Council of
                            Canadians, the New Democratic Party-Canada
and the National Union of Public
                            and General Employees.  Others are regional
or local groups focused on
                            peace, human rights, the environment and
other issues.  We now have 24 NGOs
                            from 10 other countries.

                            Please help us to build even more support
for this initiative by
                            encouraging other NGOs to endorse the
festival.  All are welcome.  The more
                            the merrier!  The two main purposes of the
festival are summarized

                            We will list all endorsing organizations in
written materials for the
                            event, in COAT's quarterly magazine (Press
for Conversion!), our
                            "no_to_nato" list serve and the COAT website
<>  Our
                            website will eventually include contact
information, web links and a 30
                            word description of each organization.
Endorsing NGOs are also invited to
                            provide a statement of solidarity for
circulation at the event.
