On Halloween I once again must present myself in front of a kangaroo court to answer for my crime of exposing the dirty tricks of the pigs and their system through writing about the undercover operation and infiltration at the G20. Once again, the courts will want me to grovel in front of the picture of her majesty, the queen of murders and butchers and behave according to their standards while the crown will slander and criminalize me.
Many former comrades who now are cogs in this system feel that I should tone down the political nature of my charges and behave accordingly. These people who have reached reasonable accommodation with this system forget the brutal and criminal nature of the criminal justice system and how it used as an instrument to humiliate, denigrate and criminalize poor people and activists.
The court symbolizes everything that is wrong with society and their can be no compromise with an institution that has thrown heroes such as Mandy Hiscocks, George Horton, Alex Hundert and other political people in jail while at the same time heaping honors on the real criminals, police used as paramilitary forces to silence dissent and attack anyone who resists there anti human polices of austerity and criminalization.
Our tactics in the court, as in the street must be one of direct confrontation with the system. There is no bargaining with a system that is perpetrating genocide here or abroad, nor is there any deal that can be made with a system that locks our comrades in cages, spies on us, humiliates and criminalize us because we are political.
Victory in my case will not be won in the courts but rather in the streets, from the public outcry of the absurdity and stupidity of my charges which stem from the crowns desire to teach me a lesson.
I can assure all the lackeys of the state that no matter what they throw at me I will still resist. And with my heart full of contempt and hatred at the bourgeoisie courts of injustice I can assure them that no matter what the outcome of this case is, it will be the courts who will learn a lesson.
That lesson is that my politics are based on principles and convictions and even after these charges are dealt with I will not a good citizen sitting quietly while the state is imposing a policy of criminalization at home and nation wrecking abroad, but will continue to fight, organize and resist.
My politics are the politics of confrontation, only by struggle do we advance and in the face of adversity and an inhumane court system I will continue to fight in the courts and in the streets. I ask you to join me!!!
The Red Flag Will Triumph!!!!!!
Victory belongs to the people!!!!!
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.
