RSM-York Endorses This Letter by RacismWatch@York in light of the White Supremacy Posters Going up Around Campus

“August 14, 2014

To Mamdouh Shoukri and York University,

This week, students, faculty and staff at York University were attacked by blatant racism on campus.  Flyers created by Immigration Watch Canada (IWC) depicting students of colour as a threat to white Canada were circulated on the York University Keele campus.  Similar flyers were also distributed across the York Village, where many of the university’s students live. IWC is a notorious white supremacist group which was in the news earlier this month for flyering racist anti-immigration posters across the city of Brampton.  Their expansion into York University indicates an escalation of their racist calls for a white nation.  Their white supremacist demands include severe reductions in immigration, limitations on the entry of racialized peoples into Canada, and no recognition of the historical and ongoing colonization of the indigenous peoples of this land.

As students, faculty members, and community members of colour at York University we are deeply affected by the IWC’s abrasive actions, which are designed to intimidate and immobilize communities of colour.  The language that people of colour are “invading” Canada, used by the IWC flyers instigates a mood of panic.  This is a historically recurring narrative of white supremacy and colonization in Canada.  Historical and contemporary examples include the refused entry of the Komagata Maru, the “yellow peril” propaganda and internment of Japanese Canadians, fear mongering around refugees arriving on the Ocean Lady and MV Sun Sea, and the changes to temporary migrant labour laws that now systematically deny workers of colour access to services and pathways to citizenship.”

Revolutionaries shut down Men’s Rights Activists Event at the University of Toronto

Revolutionaries shut down Men’s Rights Activists Event at the University of Toronto

Comrades from the Revolutionary Student Movement, the Proletarian Feminist Front, and the Proletarian Revolutionary Action Committee confronted reactionary Men’s Rights Activists (MRAs) as they gathered to spread their message of misogyny this past Tuesday at the University of Toronto.

MRAs, organized under the dubiously-named “Canadian Association For Equality” were completely unprepared for the opposition they must inevitably face. After facing the organized resistance of the comrades, who disrupted the meeting by shouting slogans, heckling, and singing “The Internationale”, the MRAs disbanded their meeting and attempted to relocate and reconvene. The comrades pursued them, again forcing an end to their event.

After dispersing entirely, the MRAs scattered like cockroaches and found a hidden corner of the campus in which to collectively lick their wounds. Laughably, they have even attempted to use this fact as evidence that their event was not shut down!

The emergence of Men’s Rights Activists, who attempt to paint feminism as the source of men’s “oppression” and “declining status” – is a trend which must be curtailed. From rape apologism to the stalking, harassment and threatening of feminist activists, MRAs have revealed that they are more interested in being the enemies of women than anything else.

This is another in a series of examples where organized resistance to Men’s Rights reaction is met with overwhelming success. They demonstrate time and again that they are incapable of holding firm in the face of opposition. A cowardly politics gives rise to cowardly behaviour, and with resolution and organization we can drive this anti-people ideology into the dustbin of history!
