Defending Hamilton: Reflections on the East Hamilton Rent Strike

Anonymous Submission to North Shore Counter-Info “Alright, so show of hands, who is committed to a rent strike starting May 1st?” There was a slight sense of apprehension in the air.

A Canada-Wide Callout to Track Down the Alt-Right Nazi Scumbags Next Door

From Montreal Counter-info The Montreal Storm leaks constitute the largest single reveal of activities of the neo-Nazi wing of the alt-right in Canada. What’s more, it looks like Montreal’s (pathetically small and inept) Daily Stormer “book club” may be the largest in Canada. That said, we know that it’s not the only one. Prior to the Daily Stormer closing its book club forum down, it was clear that there were Read More …

Report-back from May Day in Kingston

Anonymous Submission to North Shore Counter-Info “Oh wow, we’re just, like, taking up the street,” I hear the thirty-something guy behind me exclaim to his friend as we take off. “Holy shit this is awesome,” his friend replies.
