Jul 30, 2019 - Game Changers: Frantz Fanon

When: Tuesday Jul 30th. 6:30pm
Where: Hot Docs, Ted Rogers Cinema

Embark on a dreamy journey through the life and ideas of groundbreaking anti-colonial intellectual Frantz Fanon in this glorious restoration of Isaac Julien's classic 1995 biopic. One of the first texts to lay bare the corrosive psychological effects of racism, Fanon's Black Skin, White Mask remains a defining work of anti-colonial thought, fifty years after its English-language publication. Weaving together striking dramatic re-enactments, archival footage, and interviews with family members and scholars (including Stuart Hall), Julien crafts an inventive exploration of the Martinique-born writer's still-potent theories on identity, black alienation, and the struggle for liberation.

The City of Toronto's Municipal Licensing and Standards Division is reviewing the licensing and cap of payday loan establishments in the city of Toronto, and wants to hear from you. Payday loans fill a gap in credit for some consumers, but they are an expensive way to borrow money. They are defined as short-term, unsecured, small-dollar loans. A public consultation meeting is being held on Thursday July 25, at North York Civic Centre Member's Lounge. You can also submit feedback to mlsfeedback@toronto.ca by August 9, 2019.

You can read more about the licensing of payday loan establishments on the Public Consultation website.

On January 25th, over ten thousand students rallied at Queen's Park for the March Against OSAP Cuts. Months later, as students across Ontario apply for the funds they need to pursue their education, it is clear; the Doug Ford Government's cuts to OSAP are worse than anyone predicted.

Half a year later, we're returning to Queen's Park, to continue the fight to save education in Ontario. Whether you're a student, a teacher, or a parent, now is the time to stand with your community. On July 10th, join us at Queen's Park, and help #SaveOSAP!
