An anti-colonial contingent joining and supporting protesters at Occupy Montreal
In solidarity with Occupy Wall Street actions worldwide
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15
MEET at NOON (sharp!)
– Near métro Square Victoria
– Join our contingent by looking for the “F*#! Capitalism” banner.
– This is a family-friendly contingent.
As thousands of people across North America take the streets this Saturday, October 15, we invite you to join an anti-colonial contingent at the Occupy Montreal presence in Square Victoria, in the heart of Montreal’s financial district.
We stand in solidarity with demonstrators in New York, Boston, and countless other American cities, in rejection of this capitalist system and the misery it brings. We also recognize that those cities, like Montreal, are already occupied territory. We stand against colonialism and in support of Indigenous peoples across Turtle Island struggling for land, autonomy, and dignity. We stand against patriarchy and racism, and for the self-determination of all peoples. We are also inspired by uprisings for justice and dignity around the world, from Egypt to Chile, from Greece to South Korea.
We fundamentally reject the notion that the police are “potential allies” of our movements, and call attention to the bloody and ongoing history of police impunity and killings in Montreal. We support a respect for a diversity of tactics and a culture of solidarity and mutual aid, not division, within our struggles.
This family-friendly contingent is currently supported by members of No One is Illegal-Montreal, the Indigenous Solidarity Committee and Solidarity Across Borders.
