Our universities and pension plans are invested in corporations that carry out apartheid, environmental degradation, and the displacement of indigenous people worldwide. On the anniversary of Palestinian Land Day and the BDS Global Day of Action, we march in the financial district to say:

END CANADIAN SUPPORT FOR APARTHEID: DIVEST NOW!

We salute people's uprisings in the Middle East and the struggle for freedom, justice, and equality everywhere.

RAISE THE RATES, RESTORE THE SPECIAL DIET: March on the McGuinty Government

March on the McGuinty Government
RAISE WELFARE AND DISABILITY RATES, RESTORE THE SPECIAL DIET!

Friday April 1st
Assemble at Nathan Phillips Square, Toronto
12 Noon

It has been 16 long years since Mike Harris cut welfare and froze disability. McGuinty's Liberals have been in power for half that time and done nothing to deal with poverty. In fact people are worse off today. It would take a 55% increase to bring benefits to pre-Harris levels. If benefit levels were restored to the same level of spending power as they had in 1994, a single person on Ontario Works would now be receiving $904 a month instead of the miserable $593 now being issued.

NYC's Movement for Justice in El Barrio: El Barrio is Not for Sale, It is to be Loved & Defended
24-26 March 2011, Toronto

Come hear Juan Haro and Maria Mercado from Movimiento por Justicia del Barrio, or Movement for Justice in El Barrio, in East Harlem, NYC, as they share stories of their struggle, build connections, and raise funds. Movement for Justice in El Barrio is an organization composed mainly of immigrant tenants in El Barrio, New York City that fights for human dignity and against community displacement. They fight for the liberation of every marginalized group, including immigrants, people of color, women, gays, lesbians, transgender communities, and all the poor of the world. Movement for Justice in the Barrio is part of The Other Campaign, initiated by the Zapatista Army of National Liberation.

Movimiento’s members, at over 600 strong, have never taken on a battle they have not won. In addition to taking on and defeating greedy landlords and multi-national corporations, they also target the city institutions and politicians who facilitate gentrification and displacement. Of the many organizing tactics and strategies members utilize to build solidarity with other organizations and advance their struggle, include Zapatista-inspired community consultations (consultas) and gatherings (Encuentros).

No One Is Illegal-Toronto: 2010 in Review

Posted in

Dear friends, allies, and supporters of No One Is Illegal-Toronto,

As we move into another year, it’s important to take a step back and look at everything we were able to accomplish in 2010. Our victories, our most inspiring moments, and our growing links of solidarity, which are at the heart of the work we do. We worked daily to build power in migrant communities, and we felt that power when we saw thousands of people take to the streets in the pouring rain to demand Status for All on May Day, and tens of thousands more marching against the G20.

But like every year, we also saw some of our closest friends and allies arrested, detained and deported because of Canada's racist immigration machinery. Many continue to struggle with issues of status, jail and unjust arrests. In the face of it all, we strengthen our resolve to continue to lay the foundations to build a Sanctuary City, and to continue to fight for justice for our communities.

So as we look back at 2010, we also look forward to 2011. We know what to expect from those in power in 2011: more cutbacks, more racist attacks on our communities, and more attempts to usher us into an age of austerity. But we plan to meet these challenges head on, and we hope that you will be standing right beside us all the way.

Community Open Letter Denouncing the Jewish Defense League’s Rally in Support of the English Defense League

On Tuesday, January 11, 2011, the Jewish Defense League of Canada (JDL) will be hosting a rally in support of the Islamophobic English Defense League (EDL) in Toronto. The JDL is hosting an online address from Tommy Robinson, the leader of the EDL. Both groups have a history of violence aimed at Arab and Muslim people. We are community groups that work daily to fight racism. We have come together to condemn the Jewish Defense League for their Islamophobia and for their support for the racist English Defense League.

Who is the English Defence League (EDL)?

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

Nov/10/2010 - 6:30 pm

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.
