Toronto Pig Save along with other animal rights groups decided to take back the neighbourhood and show what is possible in a residential area overshadowed by the QMP pig slaughterhouse.
In place of a pig slaughterhouse, TPS is advocating for a just transition for workers on Labour Day -- safe, fulfilling, and meaningful jobs needed to support a food economy that is local, organic, and whole grain- and plant-based.
On July 4, 2011, as part of a North America book tour, Omar Barghouti spoke in Toronto about his newly released BDS: Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions... The Global Struggle for Palestinian Rights, published by Haymarket Books.
The forum was organized by the Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid (CAIA); OPIRG (U of T); Students Against Israeli Apartheid (SAIA) (Toronto); Faculty4Palestine; Palestine House Educational and Cultural Centre; and the Canadian Arab Federation. The event was moderated by Kat Lapointe. Video production by Anita Krajnc.
