These ‘leaders’ have shredded the public sector and social spending, criminalized the poor, immigrants, disabled and racialized communities, continued to plunder Indigenous lands and trash the environment, deported our families and friends, gutted the unions, and closed hospitals and schools while they grant tax cuts to the rich and corporations and boost police and military budgets. These disgusting policies have enacted devastation around the world and are reflected right here in Toronto.
We are the people severely impacted by this agenda: we are Toronto-based community organizations, people of color, indigenous people, immigrants, women, the poor, the working class, queer and trans people, disabled people, and our allies.
We live in a city that houses the corporations that exploit and displace people. Toronto police kills and brutalizes our communities. Toronto housing kicks out our families. Toronto social services slam the door on undocumented migrants. This city pushes out poor people and attacks sex workers. Toronto exists on stolen indigenous land.
Toronto’s communities are uniting to take back what is ours! Join us on the streets June 25, as we ensure the G20, the G8 and their deadly policies are exposed and challenged! Rally, march, party and pitch a tent city against Toronto and the G8/G20′s colonial, racist, sexist, ableist, homo/transphobic and capitalist policies.
Join Us for Justice For Our Communities!
Action expected to continue until next day. Bring sleeping bags and/or join when you can! Constant updates on June 25th at https://25june.wordpress.com and on twitter @g20mobilize
