Speakers:

Ameth Lo, Group of Research and Initiative for the Liberation of Africa (GRILA)

Sid Lacombe, anti-war activist and member of the International Socialists

While Harper has denied and continued Canadian colonialism, he is joining imperial intervention in Mali. Ten years ago the Canadian government tried to join the Iraq War, but were stopped by a mass anti-war movement. Join a discussion about the current situation in Mali, the lessons of the anti-war movement, and how we can support anti-colonial movements abroad and at home.

Organized by the International Socialists www.socialist.ca

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
