Toronto: May Day Bank Attack

In “Toronto” on the morning of May 1st, we attacked an RBC branch in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en land defenders. We left a spray-painted message, a damaged lock, and a mess of red paint.

As we walked away into a beautiful May Day sunrise, we left a trail of messages through the city.

We were left wanting more, but we know that there are many more days ahead.

The time is now, the task is simple! Atta​​​​​​​ck! Read More …

Toronto: Hate and genocide apologism have no place on campus – an account of the Dec 18th anti-fascist rally at University X

On December 18th, a coalition of anti-fascists/anti-racists consisting of leftist organizations, labour unions, and concerned community
members, gathered at University X (the school originally named after the genocidal, Egerton Ryerson who played a crucial role in the Canadian Residential School system). This demonstration was originally intended to be a counter to a rally being held by the so-called “Ryerson Conservatives,” and was to feature notorious politician, and piece of shit, Maxime Bernier, as well as other far-right politicians/genocide apologists and anti-vaxx spokespersons. However, shortly after a number of groups and organizations stated their intentions to counter the rally, the event was cancelled. (-Their ‘official’ reason for the cancellation seems to keep changing…-) Despite the event’s cancellation, there were still concerns that some of the far-right would attempt to occupy the space at University X anyway. In response, the coalition of various orgs and individuals went ahead with the counter-demonstration. Read More …

Glorious Rage: Rail Sabotage in Solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en

One recent evening, allies/accomplices went out into the night to pick up where others may have left off in the spring of 2020: targeting rail infrastructure.

Using various methods (detailed below for your reference, education and delight!) we disrupted rail all over so-called southern Ontario throughout the night, hitting nearly a dozen different spots on both CN and CP rail lines. We did this in heartfelt solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en defending their Yintah from destruction, and fuelled our actions with the justified rage we feel towards the RCMP and state for once against invading their territory on behalf of a private corporation.

Toronto — Trial and Error: Lamport Stadium and Beyond

Most people are aware by now that Toronto police and city workers cleared an encampment in Lamport stadium in late July. This report back will not be summarizing the events of that day, or providing much insight into the specific structures involved with eviction, as much of that has already been written. The goal is to hopefully prompt discussion about changes that we are seeing, and to encourage more imagination, exploration and sharing! Read More …
