(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.

Beyond Austerity: article for the Printemps 2015 Newspaper

Beyond Austerity: article for the Printemps 2015 Newspaper

May Day: Let’s Make Migrant Labour Central to our Struggles against Austerity

Montreal, 1 May 2015 — In the context of the struggle against austerity, Solidarity Across Borders calls on all community organizations and centres, collectives, trade unions, healthcare providers, educational institutions, food banks, shelters, housing co-ops, etc. to commit to providing their services to everyone, regardless of immigration status, and to make the question of migrant labour central to our struggles against austerity.

This year, we march in opposition to growing austerity measures and in solidarity with grassroots resistance efforts in Montreal and across Turtle Island. Over the past few months, sweeping cuts to social services – from health care, housing assistance and employment aid, to social assistance and education, etc. – have been announced, putting the future and accessibility of these services at risk. This neoliberal offensive is taking place not just at the provincial level: the federal government has gutted employment insurance, slashed health...
