Alan Ryan People Community Defense Brigade sets up table in ceder hills community and cleans up the filth

2 Dec

Despite pimps cruising in their bougie cars to attempt to intimidate us and johns being forced to go someone where else to exploit people, the Alan Ryan Peoples Community Defense Brigade set up a table at the top of Church and Madison handed out coffee, kept and eye on the street and picked up three bags of garbage as well handed out literature.

People from the community thanked us for the work that we were doing and we had many discussions on the work of our organization. We picked up three bags of garbage including drug paraphernalia but no needles due to the success of harm reduction initiatives.

The place we chose to set up shop was a alley where bad shit goes on and a friend of ours killed herself a few years back. This is the area another friend of ours was murdered and the killer walked because he was white and the victim was black.

Flyers explaining who we are and how to get involved were also handed out and we feel that this manner of patrolling the community works best as it allows the community to approach us and talk about the issues we are facing we will be in the same place next Friday and look forward to seeing more people join us.

Meeting with VANDU on Safe injection site a success

2 Dec

Yesterday we held a community focus group on the issue of a safe injection site and its impact on the community. This focus group comprised of all stratas of society was not based on random theory or guess work but rather was based on a presentation and discussion with VANDU, Vancouver Area Network of Drug Users which is a grassroots group in Vancouver. After a brief go around and presentation from Vandu including a Q and A period a discussion on the drugs problem in Kitchener took place as well as a discussin on what could be done to move forward. Discussion on our proposal took place as well as discussion on the work of the Alan Ryan Peoples Community Defene Brigade took place. A meeting will take place in the near future where all social agencies will be contacted to see what the can contribute to our proposal

Suspicious break in takes place during Alan Ryan Peoples Community Defense Brigade Patrol

26 Nov

Last night while we were out on patrol a break in took place in front of my fathers house in a car that I had my thinks. There was no sign of forced entry and the things the way in which the break in took place and what was taken and what was left behind is telling that this was no ordinary break in.

The person who broke in the car did not smash the window nor break anything nor were their any signs of jimmying which demonstrates that the person who did this did a professional job. Most likely the fob was copied which shows that they had some level of serious computer know how.

The person went into my bag and took an antique knife a oldschool flint locked musket, used syringes that were used for inter muscluar injections of heart medication, my affidavit for my passport, legal papers and my passport forms. Left behind was a full bottles of clonazapam, Temazapam Viagra and many other meds that have high street value, money, technology that could have been sold and other things.

Clearly this break in was not about money or a quick fix or any of that but rather was an attempt to get things that had information on myself, get things with my DNA as well as weapons which could be traced back to me. The fact that it was done right in front of my fathers house and that they went directly for my bag shows that they knew exactly what they were going for and that this was premeditated well planned out and quite brazen since there is mass support in this community for the work I do . The fact that legal documents were taken as well as dirty syringes both which have no street value demonstrate that this was not something done for money or a quick fix but rather to get information as well as my dna which I have always refused to give on principle. The antiques which were taken can be traced back to me and have my prints and dna all over them as well making them ideal tools to be used to frame me. The fact that money was ignored as was medicines with a high street value demonstrate that this was not done for money but rather another motive. The timing and the ability to pull it off so quickly without anyone noticing anything on a street where people got my back also demonstrates a serious level of surveillance leading up to this and the fact that this area and myself are heavily surveilled by the police makes it quite peculiar that magically no police were around and saw nothing.

After speaking to a lawyer he said I have no choice but to report it in case any of these antiques magically turn up at a murder scene or that my dna from the used rigs end up in the wrong place. So i went to the police station and filed out a report knowing that nothing will come of this. When asked who my suspects were I stated quite clearly I thought they did it or if not them some intelligence agency. The filling out of the report was short and there is an occurrence number 267732.

In any case this is quite clear that this break in was not some random crime and in all likelihood was done to intimidate myself and other comrades from engaging in the work we are doing or for far more nefarious purposes. Probably it was done by one of the states minions whom were provided with information and tools to carry this out. This will not break our resolution to continue our work.

Why We Need A Safe Injection Site NOW!!!

24 Nov

BY CG our PRO

We have been pushing for a safe injection site in Kitchener
for over a year now. We are getting closer to our goals every day and want to share with everyone the reasoning behind this goal.
As anyone who follows the news is well aware overdose
deaths have increased exponentially over the past few years. A large part of the reason behind this is an increase in fentanyl which is showing up not just in opiate drugs but everywhere. People are literally dying in the streets and in homes and businesses
all over town. A safe injection site would provide a safer environment for people to use their drugs with trained professionals present in case of an overdose.This is a main reason for having a safe injection site and it is a big one – it quite literally saves
lives. However, there are many other benefits to this type of site both for the people who use it and the city in general. First, it can concentrate a lot of drug use into one contained area, which has multiple benefits for the community; people who may have
used in a park or an alleyway are now in one place, which also means they can dispose of their used needles and other equipment safely. Also it gives the clients of the site the chance to connect with other services – health care, counselling and potentially
rehab and such if they are interested in going that route. Right now people often don’t get help that they need because of the stigma around addiction. They hide their problems out of shame instead of treating it like any other health care issue. Having this
site could help to change that; instead of hiding in shame or being treated badly by the health care system people can have their needs met in an environment that promotes dignity and respect.
Another community benefit is the potential savings to
the health care system. There are many health issues that arise as a consequence of unsafe drug use. We have learned that our already overtaxed ambulance system is struggling to keep up with the increased amount of overdoses they are seeing. At the site trained
professionals can help deal with any overdoses with naloxone and other measures. Also, things like using a dirty needle or water or being in a dirty environment can increase the risk of bacterial infections abscesses and other infections, and HIV and Hepatitis
which can be spread by sharing equipment. Having a clean site with new equipment will cut down dramatically on these types of infections.
We all know that drug addiction and abuse affects poor
people far more than anyone else. People who live in poverty are unlikely to have a safety net to fall back on of savings or family or anything that can help mitigate the unpleasant consequences of addiction. We owe it to our most vulnerable citizens to do
whatever we can to help with addiction issues and opening this site is a step in that direction.

On November 11 we remembered the victims of Imperialism and the working class youth sent like meat to the grinders

24 Nov

On november 11 we gathered at the 32 CSM office to recognise
remembrance day from a realistic perspective. While others were marching to celebrate and glorify the war machine we watched the movie All Quiet on the Western Front and engaged in discussions with veterans about the realities of war. In our society the rich
wage wars to expand their bank accounts with the bodies of the poor as canon fodder. Although we did not have a huge turnout the people who attended were keen to listen and to learn.
The movie All Quiet on the Western Front as well as the
discussion reflect the reality of the sentence “a bayonet is a weapon with a worker on both sides”. Over the next year we aim to build and expand on this understanding so that we can create a genuine movement opposed to the wars of the imperialists.

Irish Holocaust Action Montreal This Past Saturday Successful

14 Nov

On Saturday at 2pm, members and supporters of the 32CSM in Montreal initiated a commemoration of the Genocide of Irish people by the British empire in 1847 at Jean Talon Market. The masses showed their interest and support in not only the Irish peoples history of suffering at the hands of British Colonialism – but also their present struggle to free their land from the domination. The 32CSM of Montreal had important conversations with the community on the subject of national self-determination in Ireland and elsewhere.

We would like to thank the staff of the Jean-Talon market for their support and sympathy. It would have been impossible without them. Given the interest of the community in Jean-Talon, we will be returning to the market for many events in the future to spread the awareness of continued British colonial aspirations in Ireland and elsewhere against the infringement of the peoples right to self-determination whereever it takes place.

British colonialism continues to this day on the Island of Ireland in the north with the south being subject to the activity of British supported Death-dealers. The recent assassination of political activists such as Alan and Vinnie Ryan has shown that the work of the terrorist Brits. Canadian Imperialism is also making the move on the south of Ireland with speculation in the mining industry, and the South is generally faced with overall.

Down with Imperialism
Down with Colonialism.
Long live the 32CSM
