When I get d'bi.young anitafrika on her cellphone, she is breathless. "I just finished this fantastic meeting!" she laughs. Anitafrika is on a roll -- the kind that's been 20 years in the making. She moved to London, England from Toronto last September to do a Phd at the venerable art college Goldsmiths. Her dissertation is a new play, Concrete Jungle. "I'm touring so much now, I'm on the road every weekend," she enthuses. "I'm 41, my children are teenagers and it's like 20 years of my work is coming to fruition right now." No kidding. Born in Jamaica and landing in Toronto at 15, she's forged her own frontier and back in a time when words such as "transgender" and "decolonization" were barely spoken of. She has been invited to Berlin -- her first time in the German capital -- to conduct a two-day workshop with ...

The alliance of migrant rights groups across the country has called for a national day of action on June 16, as the campaign fights back against increasing xenophobia and racism. "Right now, what's happening in Canada is we're seeing a slate of right-wing governments being elected across the country," says Preethy Sivakumar of MRN. "And what are all these right wing governments doing? They're using racism as a weapon to win votes. Once they gain power, what they're doing is pushing austerity budgets , deepening poverty , and attacking workers' rights . Unions have an active interest in ensuring that ...

Misspeaking childcare: The Ford government's evidence vacuum 28.5.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Martha Friendly *This blog went to press as Premier Ford announced that he was reversing retroactive cuts to municipalities for childcare for 2019, but confirming that cuts in the future will continue. Ontario childcare developments in the last few months have been so alarming, chaotic, and ill-informed they truly make your head spin. The news headlines speak for themselves: "Doug Ford's Cuts Put Over 6,000 Subsidized Daycare Spaces at Risk -- Toronto," "Ontario Cancels $50M Fund That Helped Child-Care Centres Keep Parent Fees Down," "Ford Government's Childcare Rebate Will Fuel Poor Quality Care, Expert Says," "Ontario Government Loosens Childcare Rules, Raising Safety Concerns" and "Ontario Opens Door to More Public Funds for 'Big Box' Childcare." Adding to the migraine potential for parents who are merely hoping to find quality, affordable childcare for their kids, the Ford government has offered only bromides, misinformation or downright fibs in response to questions or objections. The assault on ...
