From the arrests and infiltrations at the G20 to Harpers attacks on Iran the Canadian Government has been following a policy of criminalization of dissent at home and war and nation-wrecking abroad.
This new line of the state aims to impose hegemony by silencing dissent here, while at the same time imposing war and fascism abroad. Come out and here people speak about this and learn about what you can do to resist.
The G8/G20 meetings took place in Ontario from June 25-27, 2010. Toronto-based organizations of women, people of colour, indigenous peoples, the poor, the working class, queer and trans people and disabled people organized a peoples convergence with 40,000 people taking to the streets, standing up for justice in collaboration and solidarity!
Activists, community members, inspired and outraged individuals came together as a movement to demand justice for people and the planet. Over a week of mobilizations, events, workshops and direct actions took place in the face of state and police repression, violence and infringements on rights and freedoms.
We must continue to mobilize and build greater solidarity among our communities- an important part of this is supporting all those arrested during the G20 summit, including our allies still in detention, and those released on bail.
