Upcoming Radical Events in Ottawa

Event Listings: Monday, January 18 – Sunday, January 24

This is the most recent compilation from the Radical Events Ottawa (REO) List. The REO List is a public announcement list for radical events, meetings, protests, and other activities in Ottawa, Ontario, on unceded Algonquin territory. The Punch Up Collective collects submissions and produces this curated weekly compilation of upcoming activities.

Due to COVID-19, we’ve expanded the list of events we would typically include to feature more online activities and actions, including some that are not specific solely to the Ottawa-area. 

Would you like to see your event included in the next REO list? Submit it through this form by the Friday before! Find out more about our submission guidelines and how to subscribe or unsubscribe here.

2. Islamophobia in Canada: Four Years After the Quebec Mosque Shooting – Wednesday, January 27, 2021 at 6:30 PM EST – 8 PM EST
On January 29, 2017, a gunman opened fire on the Islamic Cultural Centre of Quebec City. He killed six, and injured 19 others. Please join us for this online event to mark the fourth anniversary of the Quebec mosque shooting – to remember and pray for the victims, and to reflect on the broader context of Islamophobia that both enabled it to occur, and has informed the responses to it. We are honoured to be joined this evening by Br. Aymen Derbali – present during the shooting, he intervened to protect others from the bullets and sustained permanent injuries that have left him unable to walk. Noor is also excited to be launching the ‘Islamophobia is..‘ (www.islamophobia-is.com) project – a series of five animated video shorts, and accompanying resources, educating about the particularities of systemic Islamophobia in Canada.
Program:
– Prayers for the victims of the Quebec mosque shooting – the deceased, the injured, and the bereaved families and communities – by Imam Michael Abdur Rashid Taylor
– Reflection by Br. Aymen Derbali, Quebec mosque shooting survivor– Current analysis of Islamophobia in Canada, by legal academic and journalist Azeezah Kanji (JD, LLM)
