Noooooo.. this has to be most politically bankrupt turn for "post-colonial/anti-oppression" to take. It only serves savarna/Hindutva forces, misses structural links btwn Hindutva & Zionism & white supremacy, and relegates casteism & Hindutva to 'culture' rather than power.

What in the hell did i just read. No mention of Hindutva fascism and it literally ends with "bit more Thatcherism would serve India well."

We need to stop being surprised by RCMP racist sexism - Indigenous women & 2S ppl have been naming this violence for decades. This victim blaming & revictimization is not exceptional. It is the violence of colonial law maintaining colonial power relations as it was intended.

. expanded Migrant Smuggling Prevention Strategy to annual $18 million budget to 'deter and detain' migrants abroad. Beware: its Canada (& Australia) - not US and Europe - who are champions of interdiction and detention.

Not to only address racism but to also center racism. But agree, not singularly.

We need a green new deal - that’s a priority for everyone. But we also needed to defeat the Nazis, build a railway to block American expansion. And those other times when “we” (Canada) needed something “we” (Natives) paid for it with our lands and livelihoods. 1

New data shows that the number of active white supremacist groups in Canada has DOUBLED over the last three years. Enough of single-issue organizing; anti-racism is not a side or secondary or wedge issue. We need to make it *central* and relevant to all our work.

So rad! And reminiscent of global labour legacy of refusing to load cargo as part of boycott of apartheid South Africa and in alignment with current Palestine BDS campaign. Italy unions refuse to load Saudi ship in protest over Yemen war

"Centrist governments have run scared. And all that happens are they get pushed further and it’s never enough. The appetite for more xenophobic, more restrictive, more punitive policies is insatiable. And it does them no good electorally."

The current fascist gov has roots in Manus and Nauru. Their scare campaign was started with refugees then they beat Labor with another scare campaign on economy and taxes. No one should be silent in front of this barbaric policy.

Agreed. And particularly pernicious (esp in this moment) in many white European scholarly circles of work against EU borders.
