Our 3rd Annual Fundraiser held at the Italian Centre last Thursday night (Sept 23) with Judy Rebick was a wonderful sold-out event. We want to thank everyone who bought tickets and our table sponsors for their generous contributions. Great food and a great speaker!
Using the backdrop of a photographic slide-show of the protest events surrounding the G8/G20, Judy Rebick shared her experiences and brought forward critical reflections about lessons learned at what was the largest mass arrest in Canadian history. She talked about the strengths and weaknesses of the movement’s strategies and tactics. She also emphasized the importance of a broad and sustained response to fight back against forces that seek to marginalize and criminalize dissent and reduce the democratic space.
