May Day 2016: 2 Cops Assaulted, Black Lives Matter Call Arresting Cops Racists (Feat. Yusra Khogali)

May Day Toronto: Clueless is as clueless does

May Day Toronto: Fashionable millennials with unfashionable ideology…

Every May 1st militant extremists from OCAP and No One Is Illegal organize a May Day march through downtown Toronto. The marches feature most of the same people we see at most labour movement led protests, each year a guest of honour gets to sit on the back of a rented truck, take charge of the mic, and agitate the crowd. This year’s honoree was the now infamous Yusra Khogali of Black Lives Matter Toronto.

It was a rainy Sunday, not a great day for a parade. Between the inclement weather and dwindling support since the days of Occupy Toronto, the crowd was smaller this year- last year there were about 1500, 3,000 the year before, yesterday only about 500 participants. Curiously, it seems that none of the major unions backed the protest this year- could it be they’re starting to get afraid of the public knowing they support this crowd?

May Day is often an occasion for violence and there was no shortage of that in Montreal, where masked thugs got into a street fight with the police and smashed-up windows. Vancouver was rather tame this year, no reports of arrests or calls for violence like we’ve seen  in the past. Toronto’s march was tame at first, but all hell broke loose after a bystander senselessly assaulted two cops. And, of course, Khogali accused the arresting officers of being racists.

#BLMTO Unmasked Pt II: Ex-Con Offers Decision Making Class For Black Panther Themed Daycare

Note: Click here to read Part I

This summer Toronto parents will have the unique opportunity to send their kids to Black Lives Matter Toronto’s Freedom School, a three-week summer daycare for children aged 4-10. The school intends to provide students with “political education,” teaching kids about “Black Canadian and diasporic history”, and engaging them in “political resistance to anti-Black racism and state violence through a trans-feminist lens.”

Organizers claim that they designed the program “to support children and families living and growing in a reality of witnessing police violence.” The school is free of charge, kids will get free snacks and lunch, and there will be free transportation to and from their homes. Field trips will include visits to the Black Farmers Market, Nashama Water Park, and the Six Nations reserve near Brantford.

It’s sounds like attractive proposition on the surface, particularly for low-income parents worrying how they’ll cover childcare costs during the summer break. That said people who are considering sending their kids should beware, offers that sound too good to be true usually are. To be fair, families whose goal is to raise anti-social “fuck the police” anarcho-kids will be thrilled with the program and staff- those who want well-adjusted offspring without criminal records might want to look for other opportunities.

#OccupyINAC Announces Shutdown, Exploits Attawapiskat Kids For Local Gain (Feat Leap Manifesto)

Big news came out of Occupy INAC last night. After eight days of occupying the Toronto office, seven days occupying Winnipeg and three days in Vancouver, protest organizers announced last night that they intend to stand down and walk away. That said, they haven’t vacated INAC’s offices yet. Further demonstrating their shameless quest to get their faces on TV, they’re delaying their exit until 4pm- allowing time for news of the event to spread out to the media.

A Facebook event page set up by the Toronto occupation claims that they decided to end the protest because “Youth of Attawapiskat” told them that they’re satisfied after recent meetings with members of parliament. The Toronto group previously stated that they wouldn’t leave the office until Justin Trudeau travelled to Attawapiskat and the government complies with a list of Attawapiskat youth’s “demand list” (which wasn’t really a list of demands). The page gives thanks to a motley crew of militants including Black Lives Matter, No One Is Illegal, Idle No More, and the Mohawk Warrior Society .

The Vancouver occupation, hot on the heels of their last misleading and self-promoting press release, took the opportunity to publish another alert on Wednesday evening. Sadly, it doesn’t appear they learned anything from their last blunder. Instead, not only did they double-down on exploiting Attawapiskat’s youth, but they didn’t even get the facts right. It’s an interesting story that brings back memories of the federal government funding an indigenous youth magazine linked to No One Is Illegal that taught kids how to sabotage infrastructure and make their own Molotov Cocktails.

#LeapManifesto Violence Advocate Occupies Vancouver INAC Office, Appropriates Attawapiskat Voices

inac-vancouver-ubcic-announcement

At 9am this morning a group of protesters walked into and occupied the Vancouver office of Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada. The group’s media release, tweeted out by the Union of BC Indian Chiefs, claimed they were “indigenous families and allies.” It explained that they were conducting their protest “to extend support for the demands made by the children of Attawapiskat”.

Early reports in the mainstream media leave readers the impression that the occupation is a grassroots activity. Spokesperson Chrisse Oleman was quoted saying that they’re asking for “basic things” including “houses that don’t make them sick”, “water that they can drink out of the tap”, “food that they can afford to eat”, a recreation centre and a library.

CKNW radio’s story is a classic example of why one can’t rely on mainstream media for reports on first nations protests. Like most reports on the subject they basically just regurgitated the media release and the protester’s claims- without an ounce of critical analysis. Had they spent just a few minutes researching they’d have realized that Attawapaskat youth never a wrote a demand list, and that the protest is anything but grassroots. It’s the usual suspects, self-promoting an idea that might have a negative effect on first nations people.

Chief Nepinak Joins #BLMTO & Fraudulent Bone Diggers In INAC Occupation, Attawapiskat Emergency Response Delayed

Life isn’t very good for the people of Attawapiskat. The people in the northern Ontario community have suffered through housing problems, sewage backups, conflicts over the local De Beers diamond mine, and allegations of severe mismanagement by former chief Theresa Spence and her non-native boyfriend who kept the books

This week things got worse when it was announced Attawapiskat was experiencing a suicide crisis. NDP MP Charlie Angus didn’t realize this problem was happening in his home riding until this week, he responded by calling for an emergency House of Commons debate. A team was dispatched including Assembly of First Nations chief Perry Bellegarde, Ontario Health Minister Eric Hoskins, and Minister for Children and Youth Tracy MacCharles- they came bearing $2 million in temporary aid, with a promise of a long-term solution.

On that same day – while Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada should have been busy working on a tragic emergency – a group of self-promoting idiots marched into INAC’s Ontario regional headquarters and shut them down. The media was all over the protest like a fly on a bright light. Later that evening the protesters had a visitor, Grand Chief Derek Nepinak- who spent the evening “in solidarity” with the people who helped orchestrate one of the cruelest incidents of indigenous abuse that’s happened this century.
