Large Demonstration Against Racism

Last year, more than 168 groups from various sectors of society called for a mass protest against hate and racism. More than 2000 people took to the streets to denounce the rise of racism, hate and the far-right. The participating groups came together to reject the increasing discourse of hate and racism within Quebec’s public space, and called for a society without borders, based on solidarity and inclusion.

Blocking the far-right and its growing normalisation within society

Less than a year later, the situation remains worrisome. Despite multiple anti-racist and anti-fascist actions attempting to block the far-right, we still see a growing trend of hate groups organising and trying to take the streets in Quebec City, Montreal or even at border crossings with the USA. These groups spread their propaganda and lies without any regard to the dignity of migrants and racialized people, or any hint of human decency. Also of concern is that their hateful rhetoric is picked up and normalised by mainstream media outlets and politicians.

We believe that provincial political parties will take advantage of this toxic climate to gain votes during the Fall electoral campaign. They will continue to try to make headlines by using increasingly populist, nationalist and xenophobic discourse. This is a dangerous and slippery slope, because it normalizes the presence of racist ideas within our society and further marginalizes the already vulnerable migrant and racialized communities.

Let’s stay mobilized - before and after the elections!

As the electoral season gets going, we think it is essential to get organized in order to condemn these racist outbursts, and to make our collective outrage loud and clear. Whatever the outcome of the elections, we must make it clear that we refuse any message of exclusion of our friends and neighbours from minority groups, and any racist or hateful discourse must be attacked openly in the public sphere.

Large Protest Against Racism - October 7th

This is why we are organising a large protest against racism on Sunday, October 7th, 2018 at 3PM at Emilie-Gamelin park.

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
