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 ...

Ford government erodes workers' safety; labour unites against racism; immigrant employment reaches new Canadian high 13.6.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Zaid Noorsumar Help make rabble sustainable. Please consider supporting our work with a monthly donation and join us as we take on the 2019 election.  Support  rabble.ca  today for as little as $1 per month! #UniteAgainstRacism on Labour Day The 2019 Labour Day will be premised on anti-racism as 13 Canadian labour council presidents signed onto an open letter at the urging of Migrants Rights Network (MRN). 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 ...

Student organizers report back on March 15 climate strike 20.3.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Maya Bhullar Many of us supported and were heartened by students coming out on March 15 to demand that local and federal government take real steps to combat climate change. There were many great interviews and news stories which talked to kids out on the street . The Activist Toolkit, however, decided to take a different approach. I contacted all the local organizers I could find and asked them: 1. How did your local climate strike go? 2. What worked and what did not? 3. What will you be doing for the national day of action in Canada on May 3? 4. What did some of the students that participated say? 5. What are you trying to win in your communities? I am posting edited versions of the responses I received below. If you would like to connect about your experience organizing the strike in your community, please send it my way. The Activist Toolkit will continue stay in touch with organizers and continue to help support the demand for real action on climate change. The reports below are the personal ...

The evolution of women's marches into broad social movements 12.3.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Judy Rebick Despite the cold of Toronto's first snowy day of the winter, I, along with about 2,000 others, took to the streets on January 19 for the Women's March on: Toronto -- one of hundreds of similar marches across the U.S. and Canada. It was the most spirited march I've been on in years, in part because of the cold, in part because of a great group of passionate speakers, and in part, I hope, because people are getting the idea that radical women are the best way out of this mess. The first Women's March on Washington in 2016 was held to protest the inauguration of Donald Trump as U.S. president. The success of women's marches led to a significant number of young, kick-ass women of colour being elected to the U.S. Congress this fall. One of the newly elected, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, spoke at the New York Women's March this year. Justice is not just about identity, she said, "It's about the water we drink, the air we breathe, how much ladies are being paid, whether we can stay with our children ...
