Dear comrades,

Why do you insist on organizing within or in parallel of larger demos, or given symbolic dates? Moments when not only do you know the attacks from police will come because the whole repressive apparatus will be organized, coordinated, deployed and empowered by their laws and technology, but where you will also be reminded to watch your backs for the hostile masses in the street (have you not seen yet, the masses ready to trample you under their fear?), the whole amalgam of leftists who want to maintain and manage domination alternatively, the snitches, and the paciflics* as we call them in Montreal, already setting yourself up in a kettle between cops and citizens, more so than on a normal day.

This afternoon, February 11th, there was a demonstration at the Mexican consulate in Seattle, in solidarity with Carlos Lopez and other prisoners of the Mexican state. A group of about 20 people chanted Carlos’ name as well as anti-border and anti-prison slogans, and a synopsis of the case and a statement by Carlos were read over a megaphone. There were two banners that said “Solidarity to all captured comrades” and “Solidaridad es mas fuerte que los carceles! Presxs a la calle!” We stood around and handed out leaflets to passers-by for about 15 minutes, then went inside the consulate and read Carlos’ statement again, and left and dispersed on our own accord.

On the morning of Friday, Sept 6th, the people occupying the lot next to the Moreau lofts were evicted by the Montreal police, acting on the landlord`s request. The lot, also belonging to the same landlord, was squatted to denounce the eviction of the hundred or so people living in the lofts of 2019 Moreau street. The city had ordered the eviction after safety inspectors judged the building to be dangerous for its occupants.

The building has been unsafe for twenty years while the landlord has allowed the situation to deteriorate. But now that the neighborhood is becoming hip and its no longer just poor people living in it, the situation has changed. That`s why the landlord announced that, after the eviction of the renters, he had the intention to renovate the lofts and to put them up for rent, but this time much more expensive. The mayor of the burrow, whose administration had also allowed the lofts to degrade for years at the expense of the safety of the renters, is also in favour of the renovation projects, stipulating that it is part of a plan for developping a healthy “social mix” (ie. bringing in the yuppies).

The landlords, the politicians, and the cops work together to “clean” the neighbourhood and to chase out the undesirables, so that HoMa pleases the new residents. But we won`t let it be. Its time to show that Hochelaga doesn`t give a fuck about the “social mix”, which only benefits those with cash. If the landlord`s aren`t even capable of fixing up housing, well, we don`t need them anyways!

Towards the social strike.
Lets retake Hochelaga!

On August 11, 2013, around 100 migrants and their supporters descended on the Laval immigration detention centre just outside of Montreal, to denounce the Canadian government’s practice of locking up and deporting non-status people. The demonstration was held in conjunction with Prisoner Justice Day, which is marked every year on August 10 to commemorate the lives of those who struggle and die behind bars, and to reaffirm people’s commitment to abolishing jails. Some people came by bus, and others came on bike, and when they arrived, they were determined to make enough noise so that migrants inside the detention centre could hear their message.

illegal demo on St-Catherine

This year in context of Earth Day Inc., a call out for an anticapitalist contingent for the 21 April march somewhat spoiled this yearly ritual of greenwashing and self-flagellation.

This year for May Day, two marches, one leaving west headed by banners reading “For a world without bosses, cops nor prisons” and “south-west against capitalism, may day and everyday”, and one leaving east headed by a banner reading “sabotage / wildcat strike”, were to join in front of city hall at 6pm to then march as one to the 357c private club, where the scum trinity of state, mafia and business meet to secretly plan which way they’ll fuck everyone over.
