Report-back on the June 6th Riot

Anonymous submission to MTL Counter-info June 6, 2024 will live long in our memories. What happened that day was more than impressive. A riot emerged spontaneously on the McGill campus in response to police violence and a convergence of forces from the student intifada. Since the media coverage seems to gloss over the strength of youth resistance that day, it seems important to take a look back at the day’s events. First of all, a demonstration had already been called by the forces of the Université Populaire Al-Aqsa (UQAM), which ended its occupation earlier in the day. Parallel to this, an ..read more

Anonymous submission to MTL Counter-info Our friend Juba Mahiou, an immigrant to Canada, has been locked up for over six months at Centre Intégré de Santé et de Services Sociaux de Laval. After an argument where police were called, they detained him under the guise of ‘mental health treatment,’ and have been forcing him to take drugs that are destroying his mind and body. Judge Louis Charette noted that Juba was at risk of hypoglycemia and Parkinsons from drugs he was forced to take, but just ordered the doctors to also give him Parkinsons drugs ‘if needed.’ There are no charges of wrongdoing ..read more

Anonymous submission to MTL Counter-info The CAQ, complicit in a genocide! The ongoing massacre in Palestine is a crime against humanity. 40,000 people have been brutally murdered and more than 2 million have been displaced. Meanwhile, the CAQ and its minister Martine Biron will open an office for Quebec in Tel Aviv…! Cooperating with an apartheid regime seems urgent for the Legault government, but not for a large part of the population. The CAQ has blood on its hands! We therefore added some color to the doors of the Ministry of International Relations. The peoples of Quebec need not sanctio ..read more

Queers, Are You Ready for the Backlash? Preparing for a Poilievre Government

Anonymous submission to North Shore Counter-Info A zine version of this text is available. I’ve always liked connecting with other queer people and talking politics, comparing notes on how we see society and what is affecting us. But lately, this has been feeling quite urgent. The countdown is on until we end up with a reactionary federal government — there will be a federal election no later than October 2025, and if current trends hold, there will be a Conservative landslide that brings Pierre Poilievre to power. This is soon, but we can still do a lot in 17 months. It feels important to me ..read more

Anonymous submission to MTL Counter-info This week, an anti-colonial uprising broke out in Kanaky, an archipelago in the South Pacific. Kanaky was named “New Caledonia” by British colonizer James Cook and has been occupied by France under that name since the 19th century. The Kanaks are black indigenous peoples of the islands whose cultures face genocide from white French “immigrants” who drive them from their lands and impose capitalism. For more general information: https://www.infolibertaire.net/?s=Kanaky France is a member of NATO, an ally of Israel, the capital of anti-immigration racism ..read more

Anonymous submission to MTL Counter-info Let the axe Strike at the root, the poison-tree will fall On Sunday, May 5th, five incendiary devices were placed at the Northvolt construction site in Quebec. This action was taken to damage machinery and reduce the project’s ability to continue. Unfortunately, these devices failed to ignite. If there is one takeaway to share, when choosing materials consider how weather (high humidity or rain) might decrease the chances of a device igniting. The longer the timer, the longer the device will be exposed to environmental factors thereby decreasing the wi ..read more

Anonymous submission to MTL Counter-info In the night of the 29th of April anarchists started a tire fire on the train tracks in St-Henri. The action was done to disrupt train traffic momentarily in solidarity with Palestine and the anti-capitalist 1st of May. We hope this action inspires others to disrupt the economy and the flow of capital across the world. From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free ..read more

From CrimethInc. A wave of campus building occupations took place in response to austerity measures following the recession of 2008. As today’s Gaza solidarity movement begins to experiment with encampments and building occupations, it could be instructive to learn from the previous generation of student activists. On April 22, 2024, inspired by the resilience of the Gaza solidarity encampment at Columbia University and other demonstrators around the country, students at Cal Poly Humboldt in Arcata, California occupied Siemens Hall. This represented the first confrontational building occupati ..read more

Anonymous submission to MTL Counter-info Tenant rage strikes again! In view of tenants’ day, we decided to answer the call for the creation of collaborative art on Airbnbs, because we’re sick and tired of passing by housing that serves above all to enrich shitty fucking landlords rather than house our neighbors. We will never any longer ignore these new buildings destined only for short-term rentals, while we struggle to put a roof over our heads. According to the platform, the building we redecorated belongs to the Airbnb host “Carli”, who claims to live in Vancouver and uses the same licens ..read more

Anonymous submission to Scenes from the Atlanta Forest As the sun sets on Earth Day, April 22nd, Earth Night begins… It is time for the sun to set also on the brand of environmentalist activism that always accompanies Earth Day. We have no use for false political fixes or publicity stunts, and nothing but hostility for campaigns which pretend that we can make everything right if we just practice the right habits or lifestyles. We know that the relentless monster of industry is responsible for environmental devestation. Our responsibility is its immediate destruction.  The wild is under c ..read more
