In his “Notes on Trump,” Bromma posits that the election of Trump and the accompanying rise of the far right are not simple accidents of history, nor the result of some single failure on our side or success on theirs, but are conjoined expressions of a deep phase-shift within the global capitalist economy. Whereas the fact that a wacky reality tv star was the one who ushered this in, and that it happened in 2016 and not 2015 or 2017, might be a matter of contingency or chance, a lurch to the populist xenophobic right was predictable, perhaps unavoidable.

“I think some folks, many folks… try to divide the concept of a mass response with a militant response. That it’s only possible to do one or the other. I think we really want to challenge that. We think that what’s needed is both. And that’s not easy…but that’s our goal.

Following the explicitly anti-Muslim demonstration held on March 4, on April 23 some of the same far right forces tried a different approach, calling for a demonstration against the governing provincial Liberal Party, taking care to not include anything about race or Islam in any of their materials, and telling people not to bring any racist signs or wear anything identifying them as members of their orgs (Soldiers of Odin, La Meute, etc.). On the 23rd between 200 and 300 people attended this demonstration that had been called for and organized by the far right. There was a smaller counter-demonstration, ...........READ MORE

The Work of Settler Colonialism Symposium was launched in April 2016 at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (see page of 2016 event: https://tinyurl.com/wosc2016). This event brought together conversations between the emerging field of settler colonial studies and scholars engaging in the continual crises of neoliberal capitalism with new approaches to labour, capitalism, and resistance against the contemporary issues of late capitalism. This convergence of fields brought to light the interrelations of settler colonialism, anti-Blackness, and neoliberal capitalism as they operate through and within each other. The symposium offered scholars across interdisciplinary fields the opportunity ...........READ MORE
Face aux abus des dirigeants qui s’en mettent plein les poches en pillant les fonds publics, l’extrême droite tente de récupérer la colère du peuple pour faire passer son discours de haine.
Dans ce contexte, un groupe nébuleux appelle à manifester le 23 avril (à partir de la (Place des arts) contre le PLQ sous prétexte de dénoncer notre gouvernement corrompu.
Nous savons cependant que plusieurs membres de divers groupes d’extrême droite sont derrière l’organisation de cette manifestation et vont y participer. Après avoir frappé un mur deux fois en mars (4 et 25), les fachos tentent de ...........READ MORE
We are living in troubling times. The election of Donald Trump not only speaks to the current state of US politics, but to an ongoing shift across the Western world. In Europe far-right and nationalist parties are making electoral gains not seen since the Second World War, while their street level movements are growing in size and influence by the day. While Canada has it’s own unique history of reactionary movements, the far-right here has been emboldened by the events south of the border; racists are increasing their public activities, and attempts are being made to ...........READ MORE
