WELCOME the OLYMPIC TORCH in STYLE.
The Olympics Torch is about colonial theft of indigenous land; corporate profit grabbing; ecological destruction, militarization and migrant exploitation.
We say: NO OLYMPICS ON STOLEN NATIVE LAND!
Take up the fight for Indigenous Sovereignty! Migrant Justice! Climate Justice! Income Equality!
Dress up as your favourite rejected Olympics mascot Sassy the Stolen Ceremony, Bitie the BedBug, Dean the Deforester, Gary the Green Washer. Bring music, food and friends.
Are you an organizer? An amazing planner? Have a flair for crafts? COME to the planning meets and prop making days. Details follow
If you are not from Toronto and wondering if you should come, you SHOULD.
Toronto is seeing massive cuts to housing, social services, and increased attacks on poor, migrant, unemployed and underemployed communities. It is also hosting the 2010 G8/20 Leaders Summit and the 2015 Pan-Am Games, all projects to attack people's sovereignty and self-determination. All attacks that we resist. Olympic Resitance is part of that struggle.
Come HEAR from members from the Native Youth Movement (Coast Salish Territories) on December 5, 7:00pm, 95 Charles Street West!
