Sunday September 11 at noon at the A-M050 of 'Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). While the attacks of the various police forces against indigenous peoples who defend the last inches of their territories continue, our governments are announcing with great fanfare the hosting of the COP15 on biodiversity from December 7 to 19 in Tio'tia:ke (Montreal), a conference where UN member states discuss their environmental policies. The hypocrisy is at its peak as the crisis is upon us.

Saison 2, épisode 4: La prison pour migrant·e·s - Entrevue avec SSF
Dans cet épisode, nous discutons avec une militante impliquée dans le Comité anti-détention de Solidarité Sans Frontières (SSF), un collectif basé à Tio'tia:ke/Montréal actif depuis 2003 dans le soutien des personnes migrantes et contre les injustices liés au système d'immigration. Le comité s'oppose particulièrement à la détention des personnes migrantes et supporte les personnes incarcérées et leurs luttes.

MayDay 2021: We don’t want this world they are trying to sell us!
- MayDay 2021: We don’t want this world they are trying to sell us!
- Meet up at 4PM at Jarry park, at the corner of Gary-Carter and St-Laurent.
The pandemic we are mired in precarize everyone and highlights serious injustices. The stimulus wished by the leaders is an economic stimulus which is not addressed to us. It is not addressed to the artists and other people who don’t make enough profit to merit the right to exist. It does not concern sex workers, whose existence itself is still criminalized. This stimulus ignores handicapped people, the marginalized, those with mental health issues. The stimulus they talk about, it is for the oil companies, the Bombardier corporations, the party friends like Guzzo, but it is not for us. To let the governments save us from the crisis they created themselves through the constant cuts to healthcare and through their "snowbird" lives, would be to accept death. What we need to stimulate is not the economy, but the struggles for our rights and the end of capitalist exploitation.

Ecofascism is an ideology that merges neo-fascism with environmentalism. Ecofascists share many of the same concerns as radical leftist environmentalists in that they want to protect the Earth, as well as animals, from the ecological destruction that has been brought on by capitalism. Where they differ, of course, is that ecofascists aim to do so through tactics that spawn from racist and white supremacist principles.

This text was originally written in French
Intersectionality is mentioned in about all of social science literature nowadays. Typically, this concept shows the interdependent relation between generic situations and how different domination systems can overlap. Intersectionality is however, as it presents itself historically, an analytical tool developed especially with the aim to build an understandable holistic view of the critics of capitalism, patriarchy and racism. It is why this concept is so important for environmental struggles.

Antiracist and Anticapitalist Contingent at the Climate Strike March
The fight against climate change must break out of its rut. It must also fight the system of borders which benefits certain lives more than others. It must crush this capitalist economy which is always looking to produce more, more and more. It must fight the migrant prison being built in Laval, in which children are raised behind bars. It must fight imperialism which forces countries of the South to produce for a pittance what we consume here in the North. It must fight white supremacy, whether it takes the form of neo-fascist militia, conservative talking heads, or colonial governments which impose their law on unceded native lands. It must fight those who benefit from poisoning the Earth and from the exploitation of our sisters and brothers.

Anticapitalist MayDay Post-Demonstration Press Release
- No interview will be given to corporatist mass media.
- Special fuck you to Québecor Média and its peddlers of hate.
- Others can contact the CLAC at email@example.com
Why did we protest again?
May 1st was created out of workers' struggles leaded by immigrants. The struggle took place on this continent more than a hundred years ago. Today, globalized imperialist capitalism created conditions which forces millions of people to leave their home in order to find a refuge to survive. These millions of people are place in situations of extreme vulnerability, creating a stateless and exploitable population. According to an article published in the Devoir today, the risk to suffer from workplace accident causing severe wounds or death is twice as high for foreign workers.

2018 Anticapitalist MayDay - corner of Sherbrooke/Amherst, 6PM
Now as before, they are rich because we are poor.
The financial masters of the Western world and seven of their political puppets will meet later this year at la Malbaie. They will fight to continue the exploitation of the global South and the pillaging of natural resources. The G7 will be a magnificient circus, paid for by our own exploitation. Paid by those who break themselves at work, by cut to social services, to education, to healthcare, to human dignity. A circus which will encourage free work given by unpaid internship, which will support the staggering profits of real estate moguls forcing us outside our homes. A circus whose sole goal is to promote an immoral statu quo. Imperialism and colonialism will be celebrated, at the expense of those who produce most of the world's wealth. But it is not too late to fight back.

Another world is possible... if we destroy capitalism!
Meet up at Place Pasteur, St-Denis street (between Ste-Catherine and Maisonneuve), on Thursday, August 11th, at 6PM!
Because, for the first time ever, the World Social Forum takes place in North America. This is an historic opportunity to see another side of modern capitalism: instead of seeing the poverty and exploitation of the Southern states, the attendees will be able to observe the wealth and decadence of the North.

Immigrant Workers in Montreal: The Rise of The New Precariat
Capitalist globalization has wrecked the lives of the overwhelming majority of the Earth’s population. Neo-liberal policies over the past 30 years have only accelerated this misery, leading to the crisis in 2008. On a global scale, neo-liberal policies and trade agreements have led to the creation of export processing zones in the global south and entrenched privatization and the destruction of labour laws have seen manufacturing jobs shift from the global north to the global south. This shift in the name of seeking greater profits is ruining domestic economies and forcing millions to migrate to the global north in search of a better future.

Community Statement: “Ensemble contre la Charte xénophobe” ("Together Against the Xenophobic Charter")
We are opposed to the proposed Quebec Charter of Values (now known as Bill 60)
From the outset, the proposed Charter and related debate fails to recognize that Quebec and Canada are built on stolen Indigenous land, and constituted through the dispossession and genocide of Indigenous peoples. We assert our solidarity and support with Indigenous struggles for self-determination and cultural integrity.
We are for equality between all genders but we also assert our support for struggles against patriarchy, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, racism and all forms of oppression.
We oppose those aspects of the Charter that attack the personal dignity and self-determination of our fellow Quebec residents, including their ability to work and survive in major sectors of the economy.
We assert that the introduction of the Charter of Values is both hypocritical and xenophobic. It is hypocritical because ostentatious symbols of one religion will remain untouched (specifically the Duplessis crucifix in the National Assembly as well as the cross on Mont-Royal). It is xenophobic because Charter supporters are appealing to sensationalized and false fears of other cultures and traditions, as part of an electoral calculation to win the votes of bigots.

G8 and G20 dictates for migration control: a primer
May 23rd 2010
G20 countries account for almost 2/3 of the global population, but there is an enormous difference in living standards between the rich and the poor nations.
Over the last decade, an estimated 180 million people (almost 3% of the world’s population) have been forced into migration, and are living outside of their birth country.
Migration is caused by capitalist disaster; political conflict and war; ecological destruction; poverty; and ethnic, religious and gender persecution.

L'État vous surveille
Au cours des derniers mois, le Service canadien du renseignement de sécurité (SCRS) et la Gendarmerie Royal du Canada (GRC) ont effectué plusieurs visites chez des militants et militantes à travers le Canada. Ces visites ont été effectuées dans le contexte des mobilisations contre les jeux olympiques à Vancouver et contre le Sommet du G8/G20 à Toronto. Certains groupes, ayant publiquement pris des positions contraires à l’agenda du gouvernement canadien, ont été particulièrement ciblés.
