Discussion: Political profiling and institutionalized racism (February 28)
PRESENTATION AND DISCUSSION:
Political profiling and institutionalized racism: How the system protects itself
Tuesday, 28 February, 7pm
Belle époque, 1984 Wellington (Charlevoix metro), Montreal
Join the People’s Commission for a presentation and discussion of the role that Canada’s spy agency, CSIS, plays in immigration and political repression. As border controls and inter-state cooperation in “security” intensify, political repression and the criminalization of activists keep pace with the creation of new special police squads, infiltration of social movements and use of conspiracy law. In this context, the People’s Commission’s campaign around CSIS is strategic and timely.
This workshop takes place in the lead up to the month against Police Brutality and Political Repression, which will include a public action against CSIS on March 29th.
