The murders of Colten Boushie and Tina Fontaine expose the fatal contradictions of Justin Trudeau’s faux reconciliation and how the colonial legacy of Canada continues exploitation and racism today.
Indigenous activists have been leading the resistance against the brutal legacy of Canadian capitalism and imperialism on many fronts, including the fantastic movement to resist the Kinder Morgan pipeline project.
Speakers from Idle No More, Grassroots Indigenous Women of Tkaronto and International Socialists will talk about how they have organized to fight the historical injustices of settler colonialism and why the indigenous resistance is leading the struggle in Canada.
