(May 28) Presentation: Resisting Capitalism, Borders and Global Apartheid

(May 28) Presentation: Resisting Capitalism, Borders and Global Apartheid

“OUR TERRAIN OF STRUGGLE”: Resisting Capitalism, Borders and Global Apartheid Thursday, May 28, 7pm 1500 de Maisonneuve West, #204 (métro Guy-Concordia) (facebook: www.facebook.com/events/435202943315001/) This multi-media presentation will explore the research and lived experiences that ground a “no one is illegal/no borders” analysis.
