Easter Commemoration held in Kitchener Successful

21 Apr

To commemorate the Easter Uprising this year instead of speeches and such we had a discussion on how to smash colonialism and move forward the Republican struggle here.

We met with a Indigenous organization that runs the Sunday free food program in Toronto and does street patrols etc.

After explaining our history we learned about the Two Row Wampum as well as the Iroquois Confederacy as well as general discussion on the work both groups do and how we can support. We also heard about the Hunger Strike of Freddy Barsoum.

We agreed on three things we can do

1. In Kitchener we will start collecting food for the Sunday servings in Toronto

2. We will invite our comrades from Toronto to come out and see our community servings

3. We will support actions that promote Indigenous Sovereignty through action not just empty words.

We look forward to continuing to put these three points into action.
