#CUPW #Ottawa community picket in solidarity with postal workers report-back

Ottawa, Canadian territory: On Nov 26th, the federal government passed a “special law” that stripped the right to strike for postal workers. Postal workers had been working without a contract since January and were engaged in rotating strike actions. They now face massive fines should they continue the strike. Solidarity pickets have been served injunctions, and supporters have been arrested. Despite these threats, we must not give in to intimidation. The right to strike is the very lifeblood of the labour movement, and the key to securing a bright future for all workers in the face of austerity. For this reason, postal workers should not stand alone in this fight.

A Shady “Antifascist Canada” Twitter Account

There’s been a bit of news before about fake antifa social media accounts, most of which are run by right-wing trolls. Generally they are so clueless about leftist ideology and unconnected to local issues that only other right-wingers have been foolish enough to fall for them. But this “Antifascist Canada” (@AntiFascist_CA) Twitter account is suspicious for different reasons.

Radical history: The computer riot in #Montreal

This series is an attempt to acknowledge and reflect on the history of militant resistance throughout the territories of so-called Canada. While the events we’ll be exploring do not necessarily involve anarchists, we think they’re important – as cultural markers or reference points from which we can be exposed to ideas or tactics. As the old saying goes, we learn from the past to prepare in the present and defend the future.
