Statement in Solidarity with Palestine

The SJCNL Free Palestine Action Team recognizes that Canada and Israel are both settler colonial states built on stolen land. The struggle for social justice is not bounded by national borders; as we fight to dismantle colonialism in so-called Canada, we must also stand against colonialism abroad. In alignment with our principles of revolutionary care, we are committed to uplifting the voices of those most marginalized and we recognize that there is no justice or liberation without collective liberation. We organize in solidarity with the Palestinian people, whose struggle under a settler colonial system of domination has been ignored for too long.

Tent City for Change Demands Housing for All

Tent City for Change sends out our heartfelt gratitude to the greater community who has continued to support Resident Protestors.

As we continue to push our elected representatives to do better, TC4C will remain a steadfast site of protest and resistance to privatized shelters, exploitative slum lords, and the denial of housing as a human right.

Three Promises: Palestinian Film Screening

Presenting, Three Promises by Yousef Srouji, in St. John's.

Synopsis:

While the Israeli army retaliates against the Second Intifada in the West Bank in the early 2000s, a mother films her family's daily life, punctuated by time spent shielding her family from harm in the basement. Now, her son revisits this past, delivering a heart-breaking portrait of the anguish of parents who are forced to choose between their children’s physical safety and the emotional upheaval of leaving home."

Migrant Justice: Status for All Email Campaign

The SJC supports the Status for All campaign whole-heartedly. We believe in a world without borders and are imagining and working toward a Revolution of Care, a future that puts care at the core of social organization, instead of profit. 

We dream of a future where the destruction of thriving ecosystems for profit is brought to an end, where everyone's needs are met, and everyone's dignity is respected, everyone's value is celebrated. Where colonial, capitalist governments no longer decide who is worthy of rights, services, or protections. We know this future is possible and is coming because people, particularly Indigenous, Black, Brown, Queer, Trans, Poor, Disabled, and Migrant feminists & abolitionist dreamers, organizers, and activists have been fighting and working for generations to bring it into being.

A different way to spend July 1 in St. John's. Land Back Fest is a community gathering and feast with the Indigenous Activist Collective in Bannerman Park on July 1 to celebrate Land Back Movements and Indigenous Peoples.

Why celebrate colonial genocide when we can come together to celebrate and demand the return of Indigenous lands to Indigenous hands!?
