Guidelines for CLAC Legal Defence Fund

The original G20 Legal Defence Fund prioritizes meeting the legal expenses of all individuals facing criminal charges and potential jail time (and/or deportation) related to the G20 protests in Toronto. The fund is based on the principle that no accused should plead guilty or feel obliged to plea-bargain based on the lack of funds or resources. The Fund considers that all arrests occurred in the context of a legitimate struggle against the capitalist policies of the G20, and that all charges should be dropped immediately.

The G20 Legal Defence fund is managed by a group of local community organizers who are not facing legal charges themselves, and will ensure that legal funds are properly disbursed.

The old G20 Legal Defence fund is now called the CLAC Legal Defence Fund. The CLAC Legal Defence Fund is expanding its mandate to include non-legal expenses related to arrests in the context of the popular movement in support of the student strike and during demonstrations organized by CLAC.

The kinds of non-legal expenses in relation to the social strike that the fund will cover includes: travel costs, rent, phone calls, lost wages, etc.

For legal expenses (lawyers fees and bail) please contact: Je Donnes à Nous: http://jedonneanous.org

The CLAC Legal Defence Fund holds the position that all charges related to the Quebec social strike are aspects of a general context of political repression and that they should all be dropped immediately. All of the arrests occurred in the course of a legitimate struggle against the capitalism and the state. The CLAC Legal Defence Fund will attempt to meet the needs of all those who were arrested, even the innocent ones.

Le verger au complet!

La Convergence des luttes anticapitalistes (CLAC) produit une série de podcasts sous forme d'entrevues nommée Le Verger au complet qui vise la diffusion d’informations relatives à l’abolition de la police et des prisons et à la justice, en abordant des thématiques telles que l'emprisonnement des migrant.e.s, la criminalisation de la dissidence et la justice transformatrice.

Alors que les discours libéraux présentent les violences policières comme l'affaire de quelques pommes pourries dans le panier nous proposons plutôt une analyse critique de la police et des institutions punitives: on ne réforme pas un système pourri, on l’abolit! Attaquons-nous au verger au complet!
