Montreal: No Police-Based Solution to the Health Crisis!

Montreal. QC. January 9. 2021. Today at 8 p.m., for the first time in our history, a province-wide curfew will be put in place. After ten months of a health crisis, our government has once again opted for a police-based solution. With alarms, sirens and flashing lights, the police will announce the time of its reign every night, at least for the next month.

Old Myths, New Peoples: The “Eastern #Métis” and Indigenous Erasure – A Zine from Sabordage Distro

So-called Canada. The era of Justin Trudeau’s state-led reconciliation is desperately trying to keep itself alive. As it crumbles, something raw and real is laid bare (again): how desperate many white settlers are to get on the right side of history by telling and collecting stories about how different things are “now” from “back then”. One of these stories has always been about a romanticized, state-led version of reconciliation.
