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.
