DROIT D’EXISTER, DROIT DE RÉSISTER! Conférence

Samedi, le 20 avril

14h00 à 19h00

café Aquin (A-2445 à UQAM)

Nous vous invitons à participer à la conférence «droit d’exister, droit de résister!”  samedi, le 20 avril au Café Aquin (A-2445 UQAM). La conférence est basée sur celui qui a eu lieu à Toronto en novembre 2012 (vidéo).

Cette conférence axée sur l’action et vise à développer la solidarité et à unifier les réseaux d’action collective parmi ceux qui sont ciblés par l’État canadien, ses agences de renseignement, ses forces de police, et son armée, et ceux qui sont exploités par son système socio-économique, le capitalisme.

La conférence sera divisée en quatre thèmes: (1) Guerre contre la résistance, (2) Guerre contre le peuple ouvrier, (3) Guerre contre les communautés, et (4) Guerre contre les défenseurs de la terre et de l’environnement. À travers nos séances plénières, nous espérons réunir ces thèmes dans un début de front commun contre l’impérialisme canadien.

Nous cherchons à rassembler les militants, les organisateurs et les personnes concernées de divers secteurs de la société afin de clarifier nos points d’unité et de lutte contre l’impérialisme, le capitalisme et le colonialisme canadien.

Right to Exist, Right to Resist!
 conference
Saturday April 20
2pm to 7pm
café Aquin (A-2445 at UQAM)

Please accept our invitation to participate in the “Right to Exist, Right to Resist!” echo conference on Saturday April 20 at café Aquin (A-2445 at UQAM), based on the R2R conference held in Toronto in Nov 2012 (see video).

The conference is an action-oriented conference which aims to increase awareness, develop solidarity and unify networks for collective action amongst those of us targeted by the state, its intelligence, its police forces, and its military, and exploited by its socio-economic system, capitalism.

The conference will be broken down into four themes: (1) War on Resistance, (2) War on Working People, (3) War on Communities, and (4) War on Land Defenders and the Environment.  Through our plenary sessions, we hope to unify these tracks into the points for the beginning of a common united front against Canadian imperialism.

Through the conference’s four themes, we seek to bring together activists, organizers and concerned people from various sectors of Quebec society to clarify our points of unity and struggle against Canadian imperialism, capitalism, and colonialism.
