Callout for Jan 4th celeberation of Cuban Revolution, long live the friendship of streets and elderly

30 Dec

Jan. 4th 5:30 74 Church Street Kitchener
Celebrate New Years, Celebrate The Victory over U$ Imperialism, Long Live The Friendship of the streets and Elderly

On Jan 4th at 5:30at 74 church St. Kitchener Street people and elderly people are holding a celebration to ring in the new year and celebrate the defeat of U$ imperialism and the flight of Batista. There will be free food Cuban music and sharing of stories. One of the speakers who lived under Batista and saw Liberation with her own eyes will tell us about the spirit of Che and why his example is most important today when capitalism is attacking all those who see the world diffrently. By doing this we reject the notion that the capitalist class gives us about elderly people being senial and youth being criminals. Today both elderly people and youth are criminalized and marginalized. Elderly people are forced in homes, youth are forced into jails, Elderly peopl are not listened to youth are told that there conserns mean nothing. We reject this notion and reclaim our history which capitalism robs us of. They say the youth is the future, but at the end of the day we see what are future is by how the eldelry are treated.

Long Live The Friendship of Elderly and Youth
Long Live our common history!!!!

Dealing with drugs as a social issue and the battle of ideas

29 Dec

Today when i woke up I was very happy, i remebered that at the old age home there was someone who¬†lived through¬†stalingrad, he was like 11 or a little older and i thought of showing enemy at the gates, having him speak and then talking about fighting us imperialism which is moving towards war and facism. I met my friend for coffe who is a few years older then me and just felt like crying. He is very intellegent, an artist, homeless and an amazing person. He also gets very depressed because life sucks when you are poor. Several years ago he held a dieing firend in his arms who OD’d and could not get help becuase the housing units didnt have phones to call an ambulance and a phone could have saved his friends life. My friend , the artist was telling me that there is no reason to live because he is homeless, brutalized and has no support, and I knew that all the cajolling and Julians book of tricks will not save his life and i feel that i may have just saw him for the last time. I tried to get him to talk to someone, I tried to bully and ask favours from every community worker, social worker, professour or buerocrat I know to find a solution to his problem. He agreed to wait until we get some results before he does anything stupid. The problem I encountered today is that the people there to “help” poor people have there hands tied because of the big beurocracy that does not seek a solution to the problems that people are facing but rather has become an industry that makes moeny off of the suffering of others. Many front line workers who i talked to said as much. The richest country in the world does not give a fuck if poor people die and those in the poverty industry have become pimps, who make there living off of the suffering of others.

Many people who know me know I think that drugs are a scoial issue and shoud be dealt with as such. In other words, until we deal with the root cause of addiction and create alternatives we are banging our heads against the wall. I am against addiction and drugs do ruin our community, but I do not hate the addict or the person who sells small quantitys of drugs because they have no other way to survive or they buy into the bullshit dream of idolizing murderers like scarface aka poossada carriles, a real terrorist who organized operation condor and states openly I put the bomb on the 747 that killedd 77 cuban athletes so what, or other mass murders like pablo escobar who organized the para militarys in columbia. No these people are victims of a brutal system and unless we deal with the root cause drug addiction will grown, people will die and our communittys will be destroyed. So how to deal with this problem. In stratford, where we worked with other official group we interviewed hundreds of people who were parents of drug addicts, victims of drug addicts, drug addicts and front line workers to come up with 50 points, Many of which we implemented successfully in coordination with other groups others which we did not. Basicly our program was 1. for people not yet into drugs create alternatives drug free cultural events, teach them about music writing etc. let them develop there skills and stop them before they start 2. for those that are addicted teach them to use drugs safer, help them if they choose to ween off of drugs and give them something to hope for to motivate them to stay off of drugs. 3. for those dealing small quanitiys create alternatives such as projects like magazine articles etc. and use there skills to get off of the street and reintegrate them into society. We didnt get toimplement all our points but at the hight of this movement we saw good success. In Kitchener and guelph we are trying to do the same thing with little to no funding constant attack from the state and severe repression because of our revolutionary politics. These same politics of hope motivate people to get off of drugs, stop fighting each other and fight the state that creates the miserable conditions that we live in. Currently we are working on a magazine with street youth and students to get people to tell there stories find a legitamte source of income and give people hope. We have several other projects on the go including reintegrating street youth with elderly people of low income etc.

Our analysis has been heavily influenced by the battle of ideas that the youth in Cuba have taken up as a result of the collapse of the soviet union, loss of 85% of trade, the Helms Burton and trecceli act aimed at starving the revolution into submission and other mesure that the empir have taken against Cuba which lead to the special period. During the special period Cuba was forced to adapt, open up to tourism which while bringing in lots of posative things also brought in problems that the revolution has eliminated like drugs prositituion etc. The special period was an economic crisis that stoped much industry, froze transportation and on average has lead to people losing 15 pounds or more. In this dark times the call came out that if socialism is to survive it cant in a vaccum and the only way to do this battle with ideas. Since socialism is a more humane system instead of reverting to capitalist neo liberal policys we will fight a battle just as important as the battle in sierre mestra, which is tyhe battle of the justness of socialism in the ideological front. the battle of ideas mobalized the Cuban people to create schools of social workers who were sent to live with familiys find out what the problems were abnd come with a solution. My friend was one of these brave youth who went forward and I remember him telling me of one family whose dad became an alcoholic and stole his childs rations to sell on the black market for booze, the social worker mobalized the family and community and dealt with the problem of alcoholism with in community while the child and family were kept together and now he is a productive member of society. I think that CAS can learn alot from this example. Sending and training a social worker to every single family in havana and then later implementing this project acrross cuba while the US boot is on there neck, while terrorist attacks are carried out by so called “dissidents” targettingg hotels schools and hospitals killing an italian canadian while our state is silent shows that if the people are mobalized and actually look for solutions the immpossible becomes practicle. Cuba has never exported one single gun to canada or has given one single penny to the anti globalization movement or anti poverty movement, instead it armed our movement through something that is more dangerous to the capitalist class, its example, what can be achieved by a small country under attack if the people are mobalized. That is why Cuba is attacked in the media, that is why Raul is demonized and they try to say that Raul and Fidel are at odds. We who are fighting know that is bullshit and we dont need the national post to tell us lies about who Raul is or how the Cubans should build socialism.

The shame about this propaganda is that it flkys in the face of facts. When the July 26th movement started and later in those days of mexico where they were preparing to launch the gramma there were only to people that identified as Communists , the rest called themselves nationalists and were fighting against U$ hegemony. Those two people were Raul and Che. It was through struggle that Fidel and the movement realized that the only way to liberate themselves from U$ rule was to liberatethemselves from capitalism. Now the media is trying to tell us that Raul is not a true communist and that there battle for efficency is a betrayal of Fidels ideas? Fuck that, we who struggle know the truth that the desisions at the 6th congress have nothing to do with the betrayal of the revolution but rather are about strenghtening the Cuban economy to withstand the attacks of the empire. Yes they would love to smear Cuba in the eyes of the peoples of the world but that is never going to happenned because the revolution has created people like Che, Haydee Santamaria, Raul and Fidel. That will Never happenned because the revolution has produced people who wiped out illiteracy in one year by going to the country side and educating the people, that is because Cuba has created such people as my friend who would be mobalized to deal with the social problems of the society and come up with solutions to the problems they are facing. Che’s ideas of the new person is not dead but lives in the hearts of every pioneer who says Pioneers for socialism we want to be like Che. The example of the Cuban revolution can never be stolen from oppressed peoples across the world an we await the day that we create our own society, learning from the example of the new person created in Cuba and dealing with our own reality to build socialism according to our material condition!!!!

Long live the example of the cuban revolution!!!!
We stand with Fidel and Raul!!!!!!!!
We shall overcome Venceremos!!!!!!

Call for court support Jan 11th, if we are going to waste the states money, lets do it at the bar!!!!!!

29 Dec

Court Support and Press confrence Jan 11th, 8:00 am front steps old city hall bring flags and colors of resistance!!!!

in every first wolrd their is a third and every third world there is a first-7th congress

Our revenge shall be the laughter of future generations of children-Bobby Sands

On january 11th, i am again suppose to present myself to her magesty and cower tremble and fear, again I will hold high my bright red banner of revolution and refuse to break!!!!!These charges are political, and i am being targetted not because of what I did but rather for what I believe, I am a Marxist Leninist, I was a Marxist Leninist and will be a Marxist Leninist till i die and no pig, jail or state will break my resolve. As a revolutionary I demand political status for all my comrades in the belly of the beast, and as a settler who benifits from the ongoing genocidal war against the indigenous population of this territory, I demand POW staus for all indigenous peoples in jail in this territory due to the fact that all indigenous people who are messed up are messed up as a result of the genocidal war that is continueing today.If they are forced into economic rights it is because the settler state is interfering with them exercising ther herdeitary rights and there right to deterimine there destiny. If there are substance abuse issues it is becuase oif the ongoing genocide that driectly benifits the settler state. If you dont believe me that the genocide is still ongoing look to Calednoia, Stoney Point and Gustafsun lake, Look at the plight of urban indigenous youth, look around to the fact that we are here today in a territory that other peoples have previously inhabited. i demand this because without this political staus for settler prioners is just another way in which settlers benifit from the system at the expense of others and I if all indigenous prisoners are not granted POW status according to the geneva convention then political status is an empty victory and just another way in which settlers deny there own holocaust.

Political status is something that is achievable if people fight for it. Here in Canada conciensious objector staus for people was not handed to the people on a plate but rather was something that was won by mennonites and dukkabors who refused to where the military uniform, hunger struck and foght back using there ownly tools at there disposal, there bodies. The same british crown that is jailing and attacking us has granted political status to the Irish Republicans due to politicla people that died for that status. We have that caselaw history and in our hearts we have the resistance and fire burning to win this battle and win it we will, not cause we want to be special and cool and all but we want the state to admit the fact that there are political prisoners in Canada and act acordingly.

The main battle at the next court appearance will be for my right to assemble legal assitance of my choice and my right to consult with other lawyers to prepare my case.Currently i cant do this because to get my own disclosure i had to sighn a document that I would only share it with my client which is myself. I was told this at four oclock with no one from the crowns office other then buerocrats being there, and i was told that it just meant i recieved the disclosure, of course i read it before i sighned, but this was before reading the disclosure and at that point it was sighn and get it or dont sighn and we keep it. You dont mess with the beurocrats they will just make you wait longer and screw with you. Talking to other lawyers i found out that it is common for them to consult with other lawyers and show or reffer to the disclosure. Given the fact that I am julian ichim I will follow the letter of the law until the court tells me otherwise. Still i do have the right to legal consultation and if i chose to have a lawyer (which at this time i dont) i couldnt even give it to him. Consulting other lawyers will save the court time and money. Chosing to go further and save the court money i chose to call mister miller, the crown tell him what my plan was and ask him to see if we can figure out this simple thing by phone. He has yet to return my calls. From this peace of information I feel that the crown has no problem wasting the states money with pointless argueing in court. Given the fact that 1.2 billion dollars was spent on security and countless millions on getting 6 convictions, none for conspiracy it seems to me the crown feels the state is made of money. i look to our simple bar tabs from nights with Khalid the police agent and get the feeling that this is the attiutde of all state employees. Plus harpers genocidal wars in Lybia to show the world what happenneds if you stand to the U$, the war preparations for invasion of Syria and Iran and it seems that money just grows on trees, but I walk through my neighbourhood and every service that can help people the state has no money for. Shetlers are full , the waiting list for housing is at least one year and methadone programs and other badly needed services there are waiting lists that are so long you will die of a drug overdose before you get the help you need because there is no money. The special diets that low income people who need them for medical reasons and some can get sick and die without them are cut because there is no money, schools are closing because there is no money, docters are scarce and medical services are fewer and fewer because there is no money. Yet not only is our state wasting money on these political cases such as mine, but they are selling the resources of this territory with pipelines in inuvuik and refusing to back up local 1005 against U$ steel, destroying the very basis of manufacturing in this country. Where are the jobs that the arrow factory use to provide, where are the jobs that Kaufmans use to provide, why are even the pawn shops and dandys closing in downtown kitchener? cause the state is destroying the back of the manufacturing sector, maning that working class people cant buy shit and the stores are closing. Those people buying condos downtown arent going to buy downtown there too scared to walk the streets which is why the state hires more and more cops and is building a new court house downtown. The state has no money to invest in saving the industry but they have money to attack the people at Caledonia when they stand up for what is there. The state has no money for single mothers forcing some that I know to sell there bodies for food and diapers but they have money to jail Alex Hundred, Adam Lewis Erick Lankin Leah Henderson Mandy hiscocks and everyone else. The state has no money for drug rehab and methadone programs but has money to build a new jail to house them and other poor people forced into crime cause the present system offers them no solutions. This is unacceptable and in and of itself is political. How many free meal programs could we have run with just one nights drinking money payed for by the state through Khalid and Brenda, how many units of affordable housing couyld be built with the money spent on survallance on people like me. How much good can come from saving the courts money by having miller return my calls and figuring out what we can out of court. You want to know how to stop protests like the g20, take that 1. 2 billion dollars, invest it in communities like mine, end poverty and exploitation and land theft and people will have nothing to protest!!!!!!!Rebuild our manufacturing base, deal wioth the hereditary rights of the indigenous peoples of this territory on a nation to nation basis. Empower the people to participate. U til you do that you will kepp thowing away money and draining the economy to enrich yourselves and jail and rob the people. Fuck if your gonna just waste state money lets do it khalid style at the bar, at least that way i will have some fun.

Happy new years and please try to stay out of jail!!!

28 Dec

I woke up this morning and realized I had to go to waterloo to do some running around, so I called my budy to accompany me. Now my friend is a green republican through and through and some of the stories he could tell you would make laurel street look like beachwood. So hes trying to convince me to go for one or two drinks, and im regaling him with stories of the othernight and how i got into a not so friendly fight with a british friend of ours after two 26ers, we kissed and made up then i puked all over his floor. So im like i kinda desreved it cause I was yelling slogans at him and ranting about brits out. My boys like nahhhh fuck britain and there queen and there fuedal bullshit system. So we joke around abit and get a ride from a friend of mine who was IDF in the 1960’s, but quit cause of all the bullshit and atrocities. He hates politics, hates the military and just wants to live his life. But you dont hang out with julian without talking about politics, and then the drivers like why dont you change your name to Julian trouble cause most people run away from cops and people with guuns but you run at them. My republican friend is laughing and like thats julian, then pulls a flask out of his coat and offers the driver a drink. We screw around waiting for the beurocrats and my friend sees some palestinians which starts him on a rant about the friendship between Palestine and Ireland and how Ceausescu should have done more to support the third world movement, to which i reply that the occupatuion of the American embassy in Iran was led by students who were trained in Romania and that funny language that no one understood was Romanian. Much to the discomfort of everyone else we start reading the paper a la Julian…. The local section is talking about how cops are quitting cause they are understaffed and our analyisi is that to push the harper agenda they need more money so they are scaring everyone into giving them more money and more cops, there are articles on Iran and Syria, in other words they are preparing aggression against these regimes to get rid of all nations that dont serve U$ interests to encircle China and Russia. Of course theres something about Kim Jung IL and how brainwashed the North Koreans are to justify the military buil up on the Korean Peninsula next to China. Which gets us to talking about Gaddafi, whom my friend calls a good chap and I state the only reason they took him out was not due to any internal issue but to teach the world a lesson what happenneds if you back up politically all anti imperialist movements such as Cuba, Chavez and Republicans in the six occupied counties. This definatly gets us looks so we leave and run into someone from the old country. Now if you think im blunt, i want you to meet her. She wants me to organize a protest so she can burn her strawberry patches and have the right to open up a local backery without a buisness license, as well as has a variety of other complaints. Shes like call Davin hes good and jews make good lawyers. Im trying to explian to her why that statement is so wrong, but she doesnt get it. Shes like some of the best communists were jews, and im like dont let the wrong people aka the nazis here you say that. After realizing that i cant convince her that what she is saying is not cool. i run into a friend of mine from Columbia and we talk about how the government there is attacking The FARC-EP, Murdering the union of Coca growers and backing up dirty tricks against Venezuela and Boliva. He asks me if my sisters single and I joke around about that then ask him about his. I catch a cab home and the driver is asking if im ok with all thats been going on and my mom and all of that, she says as i get dropped off Happy New Years and please try to stay out of jail at least for the holidays.

Some people have seen some of my darker blogs and wounder am I ok how can i cope etc. i feel Im ok, I laugh and joke and live, but I dont know anything else. All my life i have had to struggle so I dont know what its like not to struggle. All my life Ive lost friends so I dont know what its like not to have emotional pain. All my life i have been political so I dont know what its like not to be political. I cant look at something and turn off my political view because everything around is political and influenced by the society we live in, from the food we eat or not eat cause we are broke to housing to drug addiction and violence, right down to our entertainment. Its all part of the system that we are living under and molds our very thoughts. So how ccan one not be political when one is bombarded on all sides by imperialism, capitalism and colonialism? We are on this land today because of genocide thats still going on, so in lew of these facts one has no choice but to be political. Yet despite whatever shit ive been through I feel im ok, yes i get angry sometimes but i also love and laugh. And it is because I am political that I can do this. Politics is the hammer that defends us from the attacks of the system and the only reason Im here today joking and being funny is becuase Im political. I may not know any othe reality, but im happy with the reality i know and would not trade it for a million mansions, cars or decadent bourgoise trappings.

offing pigs, burning prisons and correct method of organizing

27 Dec

Last night i did a serious 5 hour critisim and self critism session where I asked myself do I needlessly put myself in danger? I anaylised my action throughout the last two years and realized that my method of political organization is basicly correct and whatever serious rsiks i take as part of the movement are the only options that I have given the circumstances.

People who dont see the problems that I face as an organizor are quick to jumpt to conclusions that I am either a crazed dictator who forces people to do what I want or that I am an anarchist who does whatever I want. Both analysis are incorrect. When organizing under constant attack one does not have the luxury to hold open congresses or public meetings or other such things. One must organize based on the concreate reality that one is facing. In the case of Guelph, the liqudation of Pflug Back as an organizor was a sever blow to the movement. The tragetting of our base of support for arrest also struck a blow, as did the arrest of girr and other organizors. Given these circumstances our capacity for meetings and acting in the pre g20 days is virtually immpossible. Add to this the devection from our movement of those who blame our repression on ourselves and are quick to repudiate our politics so that they may get funding to run programs that we ourselves started, getting badly needed funding from groups that would make our organization stronger. Why did opirg guelph choose to fund these groups for there free meal programs that we started while we have to pay for our food programs out of our pocket. Its no accident that at the hight of the occupy movement and preparing for our election aaron samuels, a solid guy and key organizor was arrested. its no accident that first myself, then kelly the giir got targetted for arrest. SOS as an organization use to have meetings, plan things and implement them. Now due to legal reasons and the fact that most of us are poor, homeless looking for places meetings are hard to have. Why did the crown say if you want to hang with kelly you must quit SOS? because SOS as an organization was marked for liquidation. For The People, an open anti poverty anti colonialist organization is running a minimulist program due to economic neccessity and the fact that Key people , myself included are up on charges. But this program is still run.

So we dont have open meetings, how do we organize in a democratic method, several people have been forced to become the centre, ask other people in the group there opinion and based on this attempt to implement our minimulist program in the face of repression. Despite the fact that we are doing this people just love to critisze us, call us all sorts of names and say we are not acting democraticly. I would love nothing more then to have weekly meetings seta solid program where we are all at the table. The material conditions dont allow this to happenned. Yet we still ran myself in the election and put forward the callout for occupy. We still do our sunday programs, maybe not on time but we still refuse to become liquidated. In terms our my resent charges, i feel i have been targetted not because of what i said but because of what i organize. Why was the opp on my website, what other survelliance is there. If i wasnt arrested for this there would be another excuse.

In kitchener the problem is the same, organizors are targetted, repression increases, people are so desperate economically facing there own problems and dealing with the day to day violence that the only way desisions are made are over coffe or the forced centre must hunt people down and ask there imput to draw up a program. Yet programs are drawn up, desisons are made and implemented. One anarchist comrade use to always accuse me of using fucked up tactics, after chilling with us for some time she now uses the same tactics and is true spot collective cadre. By rejecting her background, burning her bridges and truely living among the people. she realises how hard it is to organize under these conditions and now critisizes those anarchists who attack us for maintaining there priveledge and not realizing we are fighting to build socialism with our own bodies.

The call from liberals and do gooders, reject your politics and become another soup kitchen flys in the face of all our sacrifice and victories. People during election debates cheer not cause im a good speaker but because i refuse to reject our politics, which is what draws people to the movement and gives us something to live for. our politics is our hammer to smash that which attacks us and without our politics we are nothing.

The other thing that people attack us for is that our slogans start hate. Open your eyes the hate is already here. Go down cederhills and see. People hate cops, hate prisons and hate explotation. The simplest way to explain our politcis is do you hate cops, landlords, cas and bosses? When people answer yes, we ask who should be the desision makers? We should. When we choose a slogan like burn the prisons down we are not actually calling on people to do this because A. there are prisoners in the prisons B. they will get insurance money and build better ones. So logically its not true but emotionally it is. When they say in the 6 counties ” those 14 men in derry are the last that you will bury they are putting forward a slogan to be emotionally true anyone from Northern Ireland knows that thousands have died since bloody sunday, yet this slogan appeals to peoples hearts. So with slogans like “off the pigs” we are not calling on people to shoot cops, which would be suicide but bringing people into the movement by attracting them to the fact that we fight, playing off there natural class hatred and then once in the movement teaching them to love and serve the people. The purpose of a slogan is not necessary to be factually correct but to have a saying that unifys all people you are organizing and using it as a rallying cry to bring in as many people as possible, then taking them beyond a simple slogan and creating organizors.

People join because we are fighting. If they simply wanted free food they would go to the soup kitchen and get a meal, as oppossed to opening up themselves to repression and attack. People join us becuase we show the way forward and as long as one cadre remains standing we will continue to fight. Discussions of having mass meetings where everyone can attend are pointless, a true revolutionary acts based on there material conditions and will adapt to any curcumstance, as long as they dont change there politics and stay in touch with the people. Yes there is alot of fuck up shit we face, and not only from the cops but sometimes from each other as oppressed people trying to survive, yes we may come off as scary and always in crisis but we survive thrive and resist. That is how we fight. That is how we win.

My last good christmas

25 Dec

So today was an iteresting day that went downhill very fast. Cant wait to get out of here and have a few fucken drinks, go to bed and forget Christmas even exists. To those who will drink with me tonight, dont worry will be in a good mood, already let go of most of my anger.

My day started with joking and annoying people and argueing, of all things, about Stalin. Some good friends came to see me and we were joking about court and shit and how the crown didnt want to give me disclosure etc. We agreed to hook up later and kick it over some rum etc. I go home to do the “family thing and all hell breaks lose. My brother starts talking all sorts of shit, and im like trying to ignore him, my dad wakes up and starts yelling about some mundane bullshit and we go at it. I look my little brother in the eye and am like remember what i did to a certain family member when I was a YO, well thats nothing compared to what I want to do you and what i will if you dont shut up. Then he starts talking shit that psychiatrists use to tell me when I was a kid, that i am guilty of my moms death, so i lose, then he yells all the bullshit about why did i go to the g20, why didnt i take down the blog etc. I respond by saying what i always say fuck you you stupid peace of shit and it escalates, my sister, of all people trys to deescalte by saying its time to sing the song of the star. But the only star we have is a red commie star of mine so we laugh sing the song of the star and shit calms down. But its all fake, the elephant in the room is the missing chair. Last christmas i slepptthrough it woke up the next day and went to Norwood. You cant fix something that is broken and you cant go back and wish things were the way they were. Which is why i dont want in anyway to hook up with any of my ex’s that i left on bad terms with. All i can do is send personal blogs which i hope 2 post saying where i fucked up, not to fix things, but as an apology and acknowledging the role they played in shaping who i am. For me the last happy Christmas was Dec. 25th 2009. im not saying i wont be happy on Dec. 25th anymore, im saying i must create something new, cause to me there is no fixing what is broken.

i got back from inuvik several days before that, and of course khalid wanted to take us to the bar, after four hundred dollars worth of booze, me and kelly found a way to get to guelph. My friend, who sells pirated porn agreed to drive our drunken asses there. We squeezed in between copies of movie titled the sausage factory and other such shit. The torch shit was going on in diffrent cities and people were pumped. I went to a stupid meeting that i dint want to go to where a certain activist said what i thought was insulting, khalid kept telling me what an ass he is and other shit he said about me that he probably didnt say but i didnt give a fuck , cause i was in ontario with Kelly and my boys and we were kicking it. On christmas day Kelly was sitting at the table with us, my sister cooked some weird stuff, we were eating and my little bro was making jokes, me and kelly went upstairs and i said it was wierd to hook up in my parents house so we did everything but PIV. We looked into each others eyes, why she kept on petting my hair saying sheeet sheeet sheet 9its an inside joke) Several days later My sis drove me to the airport to get to inuvik and me and kelly kept hugging each other not wanting to let go. That Christmas was my last Christmas and all the carols or family dinners with a missing chair and all that stuff wont bring tha christmas back. Just like me and Kelly are done. Me and Christmas are done and there is no going back. i will remember the good christmass’s i had and have found memories but I can never go back to that space in time, only forward. It doesnt mean I wont do cool shit on Dec. 25th, we need to start our own new traditions after all, and i plan to start one tonight, it just means i wont try to relive absurd fantasys of the past.

Ichim put the gun down

24 Dec

So after my previous blog I went to visit my friends and admitted I had a crush on a certin activist. Im like im gonna ask them on a date, then im like not a date date,i just like them. Then i tried to explain not like like, so finally I admitted that I had a crush on them.They were like what the fuck this person is so not right for you, you are both so intense your fights would be crazy. They brought up all sorts of negative charictaristics and were like if you ask them out they will text me and be like ohhh my god you wont believe who asked me out. I told them all the nice things they did for me, and they are like I did all that to but your not asking me out. They made fun of me for awhile and i got the number of this girl. Was gonna call but had a bad feeling about someone else, which was wierd cause I havent really talked to them for awhile, but some bad shit happenned to my other friend like a few days ago and they are gone so im like fuck it better call them first. Me and this person have history so i will leave it at that. I call and im like shit what do i say like is any bad shit happening to u? So im like merry xmas etc. and they hang up which is really good cause if they hate me that means they can hate and if you hate then bad shit wont happenned cause hate is one of those emotions. If they were just like fuck julian hes annoying thats also good cause its still like yeah. So Im like calling my boss for advice but she didnt answer left her a msg, then the shit storm hit and I realized how fucked up shit is and getting involved in a relationship is fucked, even asking someone on a date is fucked especially with all this shit and charges and blah blah blah. Maybe any time a lawyer calls, or emails or something I should just harpoon my phone. Plus why the fuck would this person ever date me? So i call my boss and let her know I changed my mind and dont have a crush on this person, then my friend comes over and ask him to throw me some flipp so ican do some xmas shopping.

Im grabbing some shit for these friends of mines kids cause of various random reasons, so i go back to my friends house tell them i am not crushing on this person, they chalk it up to temporary insanity and there hunting buddy is there and we start talking about crossbows, shooting squirrels and guy things which gives me the best idea, get a six year old a high powered co2 pellet gun with a real laser scope and hollow point pellets. My other friends are like you should ask the mother first. We chit chat and they say no, i call ack to ask about a simple winchester pellet gun, they say no. I call a cab go to the mall and get annyed but on the way Nikki menage fly is playing and Im like yeah, im here to win, im here to fight and get in a better mood, after 12 calls she agrees to soft point plastic pellets and a pellet gun on certain conditions, but I gotta try everything out and check shit out etc.

Now the thing that makes me endearing also makes people hate me. I am childidh sometimes and off course i gotta try it out. Now remember its plastic bb soft point that cant even dent a can and has some wierd orange shit on the muzzle, so i go to an abandoned area, where ther are no buildings and car and all hear is “drop the gun Ichim” 90% of me is like fuck it i should tell them fuck themselves, im not breaking any law, but that 10% was the nagging voices of all the idiots in my life who always yell at me for being so childish. I put down the soft airgun and start ripping into the cop. I call him an idiot and ask how stupid he is and what if he would have shot me, why was he following me etc etc etc. He agrees to let me go and not say shit and I get to keep the airgun. (apperently its a lot of paperwork to pullout a gun and i was threatening to sue and it was like fucken all orange muzzled, plastic and shit) I wasnt breaking any laws, the place was the type of place for such activities etc. Now if i tried it out in the mall that would be a diffrent story……..still im in a good mood cause it was kinda funny. I call one friend to tell them i just get to the part about guns drawn and they snap. I call my other friend who is a guy and apperently he had 10 friends who did the same shit, went to the same place and had the same response. We joke around and laugh at how funny that is. I feel good cause im joking with my friends etc.

Chou Enlai, when asked if he felt bad for not having kids, said every child in China is my child so what do you mean I have no kids. Yeah shit is kinda fucked for me right now legally and with what i will do if convicted so i cant get into a relationship, but I have the love of my community and friends. Like the song says Im here to win, im here to fight, and fight I will with my heart and conviction until final victory. This fight and struggle is motivated by love for me community and friends even if they hang up on me when I say funny stories. Even the naggers in there own screwed up controlling dont have any fun way care about me. One could say that by being part of the movement Im surrounded by love, and if thats not enough to keep me occupied, im sure i can buy a crossbow!!!!!

What The Fuck Can you do to me?

24 Dec

I woke up today, my teeth bleeding more then usual, the fillings are not filled in yet so when i grind my teeth in my sleep, i wake up with my mouth full of blood. I go outside, light my smoke and spit. We have two guests who are dropping by Christmas stuff. they work for a life insurance company.

In the summer i applied for life insurance and was denyed, not for health reasons (they didnt get that far) but rather for the fact that I am an activist. When my sin number was run everything from g20 to my trip[ to inuvik to many diffrent things came up. The two people who were here were the peope that processed the application.

So im smoking, and talking about the blog. My brother starts yelling at me, saying im gonna die in jail for the fact that I was stubborn and “proud and refused to alter my post on Khalid. Our guests start saying “julian, they know and watch everything you do, when your sin number is run everything comes up”, people start talking about how I need to stop being political or Im fucked. Im trying to argue my point, but emotions are high. I go out for another ciggerrette.

When I was dating kelly the whole thing was behave or we will take her from you. Quit SOS or we wont let you see her. Well im not dating Kelly. My mom is dead, they stole her last moments from me. She died worrying that I would not find another surety. What can they do to me that is worst then this? Throw me in jail? I Dont give a fuck, shoot me? Im already dead!!!! Silence me, they will have to cut my fucken toungue out. There is nothing the state can do to because I have nothing to loose. Theres a certain freedom you have when you have nothing to loose, you stop being diplomatic, you say exactly what you think do what must be done and fuck the consequences. What the state did to me with the whole g20 bullshit is take an activist that weighs options, acts diplomatic, and fears consequences and turned me into someone who doesnt give a fuck. So do your fucken worst, the only way to wipe my smirk off my face is with a fucken machine gun, and Ill still be saying fuck you.

Long live the friendship between the streets and the elderly

24 Dec

Today the Spot Collective moved forward on there project of reunification between the streets and low income elderly people. We had our Annual Christmas party at the low income elderly home in the east end and found out that street youth and elderly people have alot more in common then the rich would have us believe. The event started late, and both elderly and street organizors waited till last minite to get things done. The joke was old people and street youth always forget, are never on time and like to take pills (to police the last part is a joke and dont ruin our fun by quoting this out of context in some court document).

After preparing food youth and elderly people started by sharing stories, us with our experiance at the g20 and some of the negative problems that arise from listening to julian when he says trust me, them with stories of living through the Cuban revolution, joining the popular militia and the economic problems of socialist Romania. Some elderly people dropped by briefly but when realizing that the only words we had in Common in english were long live TITO, or the Chinese comrades saysing long live Mao and the friendship of Cuba and China we realised that you can only repeat the same slogan for so long before you have to say goodbye and we need more then Romanian and Spanish interperators. Given that all i remeber in Manderin is songs of Mao and smoking is cool, it should be someone else.

We also realized that we have quite a bit in common in terms of our marginalization. No one takes us seriously, no one listens to us and in life the only thing we have is what we fight for. We also realized that both our so called allies will ditch us when conveniant to them and must rely on ourselves to build the new society and solve our problems. The funniest part of the night was when the main Elderly organizor asked me, julian seriously where did you hide the rum?

We agreed that we would continue to bridge this divide that the rich have created between us and have more events where we wont leave everything to the last minute. We also realized that i suck at giving directions especially when I say the address is the red building on church and there are 6 red buildings on Church st.

We will contiue to implement our program and treat our elders, who keep our history with the respect they deserve, marching forward hand in hand to create the new society.
