Abstract:  This coalition has been initiated by the International Association of Filipino Patriots to prevent the sale of Canadian uranium for the defective Westinghouse nuclear reactor in the Philippines. The three points of unity that all members agreed upon in joining this coalition were: 1) to demand that the Canadian government not sell uranium for the defective Westinghouse reactor in the Philippines; 2) to denounce the exportation of the Westinghouse nuclear reactor to the Philippines; 3) to condemn the repression of those in the Philippines who oppose this reactor and who are fighting to preserve their livelihood and prevent pollution of their environment.
On the occasion of the International Day of Protest Against the Westinghouse Nuclear Reactor (Nov. 29 - Dec. 1, 1978) the Committee sponsored a number of activities in Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa. These included press conferences, public forums, march-rallies (Ottawa), a petition and telegram campaign to the National Energy Board and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
The Coalition presently includes groups in Montreal such as Society Against Pollution, SUP Montreal, Alliance Tournesol, Greenpeace Montreal and Le Monde a Bicyclette. The Coalition invites participation from other groups in order to strengthen future campaigns.

This organization no longer exists.
