From National Observer - by Carrie Saxifrage
“You don’t need to be inspired, you don’t need to care, you just need to say, ‘I will help you make that poster.’ If you don’t find something that wakes you up there, okay. But if you do, isn’t that wonderful? You changed your life and you get to do great things for the world.” - Mary Robinson, Council of Canadians, Winnipeg
July 1 is the day that people across Kanada get together to rally around a common theme-Kanada. But what does it really mean to celebrate this day?
Kanada is a country founded on the expansion of capitalism and domination.
It is based on genocide and the theft of this continent.
It is based on years of violence towards native peoples, but relies on imperialism to exist.

Towards Unsettling Paths
A retrospective of Prairie Struggle, an anarchist political organization from Canada that existed from 2011-2015.
As much as this pains those who have participated in the anarchist communist experience between 2011 and 2014 in the Canadian prairies, today, Prairie Struggle announces its official secession and subsequent disbandment.

This week we break Bill C-51, down Klanada’s sinister new law, that would give the Canucks increased spying powers over its population.
On the break, long standing hip-hop act Onyx, returns with “Fuck The Law.” We wrap things up with an interview with Antoine, a computer security ninja, about how we can protect ourselves from surveillance.
From The Hamilton Institute
The past month in Hamilton saw two communique-worthy events without communiques. We celebrated March 15th day of action against brutality in the middle of the Juno awards ceremony and our buddy who was getting railroaded into a jail sentence got off after a crowd of supporters pressured the court.
According to a report by ABC Mexico, anarchist prisoners Carlos, Amelie and Fallon were released March 13th, Amelie and Fallon were transferred directly to an immigration prison to be deported back to Canada. Given the condition of the place: restricted visits and lack of information, the situation of the companions was unclear until March 23 when they were deported.
Recall that the comrades were sentenced for an incendiary attack with molotovs against a Nissan dealership and the Ministry of Communication and Transportation in Mexico City.
The fire still burns
From The Tower
With the bitter cold days of winter slowly winding down, Hamilton's friendly neighbourhood anarchist space The Tower is making some big plans as we look forward to the upcoming months. In May we will be celebrating a year in our current location, and we are excited to announce that we just officially renewed our lease for another year.
On January 29 2015, a person in Hamilton who has been active in organizing against Line 9 and the Tar Sands opened their door to find a detective from the Hate Crimes and Extremism Unit of the Hamilton Police. This person is on bail from charges relating to the many blockades of Enbridge's Line 9 construction sites. They were placed under arrest for breach of bail under a flimsy pretense. They were held overnight and released the next day under a stricter bail.
