Black Ribbon Day 2022

August 23 marks Black Ribbon Day, the day in 1939 when Nazi German and Soviet Russia signed a non-aggression treaty and agreed to appropriate the sovereign lands that lay between them. This is the unlawful event that led to the Soviet invasion of the Baltic countries in 1940 and the decades of oppression under Soviet occupation that followed World War II. It is an event we need to remember because Russia still continues to act as if it has the right to determine how its neighbours should live. Please join us in protest across Canada:
