Rethinking Solidarity, Rebuilding Alliances: Building Anti-Colonialism On Our Campuses and In Our Co
Maia Ramnath - author of Decolonizing Anarchism (AK Press, 2012)

With the largest indigenous reserve by population located an hours drive from Toronto, how well do activists and movements engage with anti-colonial solidarity? From the Canadian military interventions in Haiti to international solidarity with South African miners to indigenous solidarity here at home, what do our movements need to do to be effectively anti-colonial? How do we go beyond statements of solidarity to actual relationships and alliance-building? How do we sustain these relationships long-term?
Join us for a panel discussion with three amazing writers and activists who will share their experiences and thoughts on anti-colonial and anti-racist activism. This panel will engage with questions of how activists can relate and build relationships with communities and movements engaged in anti-colonial work. And how to sustain them.
