In today’s international political climate, we are witnessing the rising threat of state terror being perpetrated against activists, land defenders, and community organizers around the world. As people’s resistance grows in their ongoing struggles for liberation, we also see intensifying backlash by settler-colonial, and imperialist nations against these movements. The US-Duterte regime’s draconian anti-terror law, Israel’s illegal annexations plan, and on-going state-violence and police brutality against Indigenous and Black communities here in so-called Canada – are all manifestations of the oppressor’s desperate attempts to maintain power in the face of the peoples’ righteous demands for justice.
Join CPSHR and guest speakers as we draw linkages between these global struggles and discuss how we can take action for local and international solidarity. Now more than ever it is important to join the people in our collective fight against state sponsored fascism!
