Blueprints of Disruption

Topic 1: F*ck Landlords

In Toronto, a notoriously bad landlord attempts an unlawful eviction and the York-South Weston Tenants Union shows them what people power looks like. An occupation, legal appeals and amazing acts of solidarity ensured the tenant wasn't put out on the street - and we all learned a great lesson in organizing our communities.

Evictions are happening right across Canada. Police, politicians and landlords and making deliberate choices that would see housed and unhoused people with no shelter at all. The only thing stopping them is us.

Topic 2: Documenting War Crimes

The siege on Gaza in unprecedented in both its horrors and the media's defence of it. Some horrific updates from the last two weeks, hostages killed waving white flags, sick and injured Palestinians bulldozed, civilians sheltering in churches and UN schools shot, videos shared of prisoners being mistreated - all at the hands of the IDF.

Although its emotionally fatiguing witnessing this genocide - it is important that we continue to share the stories coming out of Gaza. To both honour the courage of the journalists putting their lives on the lines and to make sure everyone responsible is held accountable. An analysis of the Canadian media shows how complicit in genocide many of our 'most trusted' outlets are.
