Confront the Pan-American Economic Summit

Jul/08/2015 - 12:01 am

The Pan American Economic Summit will bring the heads of Shell, Rockefeller Foundation, US, Canadian and European Chambers of Commerce, as well as Canada's Finance Minister and ex Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Perez to Toronto from July 8 to the 10th, 2015.

These unsavoury characters joined by many other heads of state are meeting in Toronto at the Fairmont Royal York to coordinate the further impoverishment of people around the globe, a project they like to refer to as austerity. This meeting is happening alongside the 2015 Climate Summit of the Americas so as to ensure that the super-rich can continue to profit from the destruction of the planet, and the displacement of people. It is taking place in tandem with the 2015 Pan-Am Games, which is a massive transfer of public money in to private hands, while hoisting up the ugliest face of Canadian nationalism.

maydaytoronto.orgJoin & Share the Facebook Event | #May1TO

Every year on May 1st grassroots organizations in Toronto rally and march to mark International Worker’s Day, for migrant and worker’s rights and in support of Indigenous people’s struggles. Themed around the most pressing issues of the day and committed to people’s struggles against oppression and exploitation, May Day unites people’s struggles for self-determination and liberation. We continue this tradition in 2015, rallying and marching against colonial and capitalist attacks on our communities here and Canadian imperialism’s plunder and attacks on peoples across the world.


Specifically, this year, our May Day organizing seeks to highlight struggles around the following eight themes:
  1. Indigenous sovereignty and self-determination;
  2. Migrant workers' resistance to border imperialism;
  3. Solidarity with working class struggle globally;
  4. Anti-poverty and anti-austerity organizing;
  5. Student strikes and academic labour battles against neoliberalization;
  6. Environmental Justice;
  7. Militant rank and file labour movements;
  8. Gender Justice

share on facebook! tweet this event! 

Immigrant detainees are being held indefinitely and without charge or trial in Lindsay’s maximum security jail. Unlike many of us, this Family Day, they will not be reuniting with their families. In fact, they are unable to see their families on most other days because Lindsay is inaccessible by public transport.

On February 16th, bring your family, young and old - sisters, fathers, sons, grandmothers and friends - and stand in solidarity with hundreds of families that are impacted by indefinite migrant detention, and the 100,000 more separated by detention over the past 8 years.

Where: The Central East Correctional Facility in Lindsay Ontario
When: 4:00pm (Bus leaves from Christie Pits Park at 2pm, and returns at 7pm, click here to register)

Everyone should be able to be with the people they love every day!
