Fighting For Our Lives Contingent for December 10 Anti-Ford Protest

Fight Ford! We Will Win! 
Join the “Fighting For Our Lives” contingent on December 10th!

Tuesday, December 10th, 2019
5:00-8:00pm
Ottawa Conference and Events Centre
200 Coventry Road

Bring signs, banners, and noisemakers!

Doug Ford is coming to Ottawa for a $1,000 per plate “Holiday Dinner” hosted by the Conservative Party. The Ottawa Coalition Against Ford will be there to give him the welcome he deserves! (See the general call-out here.)

Join us in the “Fighting For Our Lives” contingent! We’ll picket one of the entrances in solidarity with those most affected by Doug Ford’s cruelty, with the people whose very lives are put at risk by this government’s policies, including Indigenous people, people on ODSP and OW, people denied access to overdose prevention sites, migrants and refugees denied access to legal aid, and all those targeted by multiple forms of oppression.

We are fighting not only the cuts to social services, to classrooms and universities, and to environmental and worker protections; we are also fighting the Ford government’s distribution of money and support towards things that hurt us: prisons, the foreclosure of reproductive justice, and corruption at the core of the current government.

We acknowledge that this action is taking place on unceded and unsurrendered Algonquin territory. We believe that effectively fighting the Ford government requires reckoning with and challenging colonialism and supporting Indigenous struggles for self-determination.

Please email us at punchup@riseup.net if you are definitely planning to attend the picket so that we know we can count you in! We will email a reminder and plans for gathering. We’re friendly and welcoming!

Fight Ford! We Will Win!

In solidarity and struggle,
The Punch Up Collective
