Organizing against the Alt-Right in Canada? Yes, in Canada!

Date: 
Tue, Nov 7, 2017 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

City:

The election of Donald Trump as president has ushered in an alarming rise in Far Right and fascist mobilizing across the United States, and sadly, this political climate has spread north of the border as well. Despite the global image of Canada being a tolerant, progressive country, Far Right groups are seizing on the momentum created by Trump to spread xenophobic, Islamophobic, and sexist ideas. And while the world goes ga-ga over Justin Trudeau and his impeccable hair, much of this hatred is facilitated by the Canadian political elites and media personalities.
