#Thorold, #Ontario: Migrant Worker Rally at #Niagara Detention Centre

#Hamilton #ON: If the OPP Come Knocking: Info about Police Harassment

Hamilton. Ontario. This morning, August 13, 2020, an individual in Hamilton was approached by plain clothes OPP officers in a park while they were out walking their dog. The officers knew not only the person’s name, but also that of their dog and family members, and they seemed to know the person’s routine well enough to be waiting for them. They made vague threats to the person about them being “a good person” and wanting them “to be safe” in case “anything bad happens” and asked to talk with them further. They were likely being approached in order to inform on others.

#Hamilton, #Ontario: (Un)staking their claim: disrupting enbridge’s newest pipeline

As the deep yellow moon rose we moved deeper into the swamp, past the sweet smells of lilacs and greens and rich earth. Lulled by the moonlight and our headlamps reflecting on the pale survey stakes against the surrounding darkness that marked out Enbridge’s proposed new gas pipeline in Flamborough. One by one we pulled nearly 10 kilometres of stakes, tossing them to the side to be reclaimed by the bush.
