Calgary Tamils accuse Sri Lanka of genocide
Tamil Canadians gathered outside the U.S. consulate in downtown Calgary to call on the U.S. to help Tamils in Sri Lanka. Demonstrators expressed support for the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, better known as the "Tamil Tigers", who are designated as a terrorist organization by the Canadian government. The Tamil protesters want that status ended, and want the world to pressure Sri Lanka to accept a cease fire with the Tigers.

PETA protesters "dressed" as seals and "played dead" along Stephen Avenue Mall in downtown Calgary. They're trying to make a link between the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver with Canada's seal hunt. Of course VANOC has nothing to do with the seal hunt

These girls were part of the sizeable "Walk for the Peace of Colombia". that gathered at Olympic Plaza in downtown Calgary on February 4, 2008. Similiar gatherings were held around the world, with enormous numbers in Colombia itself. It was quite cold, but everyone seemed quite enthusiastic, and determined to endure the bad weather. People were calling for an end to the kidnappings, killings, and other violence committed by FARC in Colombia.
