Upcoming CLAC General Assembly

Prochaine assemblée de la CLAC: Mardi 30 août 2011 - UQAM A-1875 To anti-capitalist individuals and groups evolving around CLAC-Montréal Greetings! The next general assembly of CLAC-Montréal will happen on Tuesday August 30th at 6PM. We hope to welcome a large number of people there! The current global situation continues to be dominated by the capitalist crisis that, day after day, “globalizes a bit more”. Everywhere in the rich countries, governments impose austerity measures that impoverish the vast majority. Now and always, the best imports and exports of capitalism are still misery! Revolts of the masses in the heart of imperialist countries such as Greece or Spain, heroic intifadas against blood-thirsty regimes submitted to imperialism in the Arab countries, armed resistance against occupations in Palestine, Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan show that the world's peoples are not powerless against tyranny. The idea that there are no alternatives to global capitalism cracks under the blows given by the general crisis of capitalism and imperialist wars. In Canada, the election of a majority Conservative government lets us foresee that we will soon face the same attacks and difficulties. Numerous attacks against women, queer and trans people, immigrants, natives and “criminals” reinforce the white male elites that continue to colonize and exploit by dividing communities and impoverishing workers. Meanwhile, the provincial government tries to pay back its deficit on our backs. We must fight back now! Looking at what's ahead, it is important that the resistance initiatives that work to root themselves in the local issues and those that work on global issues unite to fight as a bloc. This bloc will be as solid as it will be diverse, but still united against capitalism. During a special meeting of CLAC in last January, roughly 30 people confirmed new mandates for CLAC-Montréal, including that of organizing two general assemblies a year ; one in September, and one in January, to anti-capitalists groups and individuals to show their analysis, to coordinate their activities, and possibly to organize common actions under the name CLAC-Montréal. In this next assembly, we'll talk about the next upcoming struggles:
Anti-capitalist perspectives on opposing Harper's politics
A large discontent seems to grow around conservative politics, notoriously amongst community organizations, unions, students and other groups. Do we have the potential to develop a movement against conservative politics from a larger and more radical perspective? Is it strategic to lead such a campaign in the current situation?
Actions in solidarity with the resistance to the next G20
The next G20 summit will happen on November 3 and 4 in Cannes, France. Do we want to organize an anti-capitalist mobilization against the G20 in Montréal?
Solidarity with the Toronto 17
From September to December 2011 the preliminary audience of the Toronto 17 will occur. How could Montréal be effective in showing solidarity?
Solidarity with the student movement
The student movement in Québec is announced to boil as the struggle against tuition hikes will begin. How can we interconnect the student struggles with local and global issues?
Mayday 2012
Since CLAC-Montréal has been designated to organize the next Anti-capitalist Mayday, we'll start the discussions over the next edition.
We'll bring people up to date on the arrests that happened this summer under the SPVM new GAMMA Squad. We'll also sum up actions taken against it.
As you can see, this fall will be hot and busy! This is why we call this invitation to all groups and persons interested to fight with us, to participate in the August 30th General Assembly, and to send us your perspectives and ideas as soon as possible. Let's participate en masse in the August 30th CLAC-Montréal General Assembly Anti-capitalist solidarity!


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!

Les idées et la révolte se partagent
