Listen to a presentation on Canadian imperialism given at the 2005 Renewing the Anarchist Tradition Conference in Plainfield, Vermont. For more information, visit www.homemadejam.org/renew.
Produced by Aaron Lakoff (aaron@resist.ca).
This workshop examines Canada's role as a state in empire, and some of the strategies taken on by anti-imperialists and anarchists to challenge the Canadian state. The Canadian antiwar movement did not provide any avenues to challenge Canada's role in imperialism because demands were placed onto the U.S. government while Canada was viewed as a peace maker for not officially waging war against Iraq. In many cities across Canada, anti-imperialists began to confront and expose the role of Canadian corporations in war and occupation. Corporations such as SNC Lavalin and the Canadian Commercial Corporation unofficially represent Canadian foreign policy as they invest and profit from war and occupation. The analysis of this trend, the work around it as well as the shifting of the Canadian state to take on a more prominent role in imperialism with troops in Afghanistan and the occupation of Haiti is explored.

-->The panelists are all members of the Toronto Solidarity Project/June 30th Organizing Committee. Mostafa and Liisa are also involved in the Ontario Coalition against Poverty.
