Organized by Barriere Lake Solidarity (Toronto) & OPIRG-Toronto

Hear firsthand from members of the Algonquins of Barriere Lake (the Mitchikanibikok Inik) about how Canada and Quebec are trying to terminate their nation -- and what the Algonquins of Barriere Lake and their supporters are doing to stop them.

WHEN: Monday, November 1st, 7pm-9pm
WHERE: Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), 252 Bloor St. West, Rm. 5280
HOSTED BY: Barriere Lake Solidarity (Toronto) & OPIRG - Toronto

The Algonquins of Barriere Lake are a small First Nation community in northern Quebec, part of the Algonquin Nation. They are a tough people - among the last Algonquins to maintain their own language, their traditional economy, traditional knowledge and traditional governance after centuries of colonialism. The community has always had a clear understanding that their survival as a people depends on maintaining their language, their relationship to the land, and their way of life. And crucial to defending these and transmitting traditional knowledge is their traditional form of government.

THE INTERNATIONAL WEEK AGAINST THE APARTHEID WALL 2010

BRING THEM DOWN!
Walls From Palestine to Turtle Island. From Physical to Invisible.

Wednesday
November 10th: 6:30pm
York University, GSA Conference Room, Student Centre Rm. 430

Join Students Against Israeli Apartheid and No One Is Illegal as we mark the week of solidarity with the Palestinian people against the illegal Apartheid Wall. This event will feature a panel discussion that traces the network of walls that have been built as barricades to dispossess, divide and isolate people here and around the world. From Occupied Palestine to Occupied Turtle Island, these walls permeate everyday life. These may be walls that create open air prisons in Gaza, Bantustans in the West Bank, border walls strewn with barbed wire that bleed migrants or walls that are erected as barriers to our own dignity and humanity. Walls so grotesquely visible and walls that are so conspicuously invisible – walls that crisscross the streets we walk on, this city we live in.

Sponsored by No One Is Illegal-Toronto and the Ontario Coalition Against PovertySponsored by No One Is Illegal-Toronto and the Ontario Coalition Against PovertyMayor Ford: Respect People!

On December 1, Rob Ford becomes Mayor of Toronto. In his campaign speeches and his public statements, Ford has called for cuts to fair wages, a dismantling of the already inaccessible public transit system, supported Toronto's police brutality during the G20, and repeatedly expressed racist anti-immigrant sentiments and outright hatred for poor people.

While claiming to speak on behalf of the 'majority', Ford actually believes in a Toronto for the few. He believes in a Toronto divided into suburbs and the downtown. A Toronto divided into streetcar riders, bikers and drivers. A Toronto divided into immigrants, refugees and citizens. A Toronto where the homeless are driven out of sight as social housing is sold off to developers. A Toronto where police budgets grow and cops act with impunity. A Toronto that is open for business, but closed for the public.

This is not our Toronto. Our Toronto is about justice, dignity, and respect for immigrants, precarious workers, poor people and unions.

On December 1, at 12noon, a public, family friendly demonstration is being called outside City Hall as Rob Ford becomes Mayor to remind him what the people of this city need, expect and demand.
