Wet’suwet’en Solidarity Targeted, We Must Escalate Our Organizing

From Mining Injustice Solidarity Network In a bizarre series of events, an anti-racist, immigrant rights organizer was charged yesterday by CP Rail Police in Toronto on an open warrant related to a Wet’suwet’en solidarity action that took place seven months ago in November 2021.

The Toronto strategy closed older prisons (Metro West, the Don Jail…

Peterborough: Charges Dropped Against Convoy Counterprotester

From the International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund When local chuds in Peterborough, Canada decided to hold their very own #FluTruxKlan convoy, one brave soul literally stood in their way, by blocking their progression down city streets.

Escaping Tomorrow’s Cages: Why Oppose Ontario’s Prison Expansion?

From Escaping Tomorrow’s Cages. This text is the third in a series that started here. First, briefly, why oppose prisons in general? We take as our starting point that the world would be better without prisons.

Toronto: May Day Bank Attack

In “Toronto” on the morning of May 1st, we attacked an RBC branch in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en land defenders. We left a spray-painted message, a damaged lock, and a mess of red paint.

Hamilton: RBC Branches Attacked For Funding Pipeline

Anonymous submission to North Shore This week across southern ontario and quebec, we’ve lost count on how many RBC branches were targeted (we estimate 10+) for disruption and attack. So-called toronto, hamilton, montreal… friends in places as small as orillia and as distant as nanaimo. These actions respond to a need to target investors in the Coastal…

From Embers: Patriots and Big Trucks

Trip Report: Ottawa on Saturday, February 5

Anonymous Submission to North Shore Counter-Info We took the train downtown to avoid getting caught in the traffic jam of the protest itself.

Punch Up Collective: Organizing Against the Occupation of Ottawa

From Punch Up Points of crisis can usefully reveal contradictions and opportunities for organizing. Crisis can also shut us down and make it hard to connect, think, and act. The mobilization of the right-wing anti-mandate crew in Ottawa and elsewhere in Canada is one such crisis. Direct confrontation with the far right is important and can be effective…
