Rest In Power, Dave Vasey

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our friend, comrade, and local 28 Fellow Defender Dave Vasey.

An outspoken advocate for environmental justice, anti-fascist organizing, and decolonization, Dave dedicated his life to fighting against state and corporate powerhouses that he saw as a threat to the working class, and to the world as a whole. In spite of the fact that he was years older than your average frontline activist he was always the first to lead the charge, to organize a fight back, and to deliver a rousing speech that would put fire into the belly of even the most apprehensive revolutionary.

A true fighter to the end, he spent his last days on the frontlines of some of the largest anti-fascist actions Toronto has seen in decades, and was heavily engaged in the soaring eagles camp, as well as solidarity actions in support of the Unist’ot’en camp.

He is survived by his cat Tom who has been adopted by two local 28 members, and his memory will echo in all of our future actions.

Mobilize Against the Pro-Pipeline Truck Convoy

Currently, pro-pipeline reactionaries are planning a truck convoy from Alberta to Ottawa. This intended show of force is meant to pressure the federal government into taking more forceful actions to get major new oil and gas pipelines built. At a time when Indigenous peoples are heroically resisting massive industrialization in the Pacific Northwest, we must fight back against this foray of far-right forces into pro-pipeline activism before it becomes a real threat.

RCMP FUCK OFF: Hamilton in Solidarity with Wet’suwet’en

Late last night as many had their eyes glued to screens cheering on the Patriots in the Superbowl, a small crew of pals got busy taking on one symbol of so-called Canada’s nationalism: the RCMP. Within just minutes a handful of determined folks had destroyed all electronic keypad entries to the building, filled the manual locks with superglue and toothpicks, and dismantled the entry and exit systems to their gated police vehicle lot. Along the west windows we left what we came to say: “RCMP OFF WET’SUWET’EN LAND”. Read More …

Rest Easy and Burn Bright, Dave Vasey

Anonymous Submission to North Shore Counter-Info. To our lost friend and comrade, Dave Vasey, and those he left behind: Words come slow in times like these. Sometimes the struggle to find the right words feels more like a further burden, weighing us down, making us feel as though we have failed a second time at doing our dear friend justice. And maybe that’s because words alone are never quite enough Read More …

Peterborough: Solidarity with Wet’suwet’en

A fairly disruptive demonstration took place in Nogojiwanong/Peterborough on Tuesday, January 8, 2019. The event was organized and led by Indigenous women in response to the call for a day of action in solidarity with the Gidimt’en Access Point and the Unist’ot’en Camp in unceded Wet’suwet’en Territory.

‘Peterborough Solidarity with Wet’suwet’en’ began at 3:30pm at Confederation Park. After an introductory welcome and acknowledgement, and some speakers, those gathered moved into and occupied George Street, disrupting traffic on an arterial one-way street leading into the downtown commercial district.
