Feb 22, 2019 - World Premiere: The Shadow of Gold

When: February 22nd, 6:30pm
Where: Ted Rogers Cinema,
Special promo code for a reduced price "GOLDMWC"

As the global economy undergoes rapid and profound change, the gold industry continues to grow. Over the past 15 years, we have mined more gold than ever before. Taking us around the globe, this incisive investigation examines the trade of this precious metal from raw material to market while exposing its consequences and impact. With political, economic, and ecological implications, how is the thriving industry changing our lives and the world around us -- and at what price?

Feb 22, 2019 - Don’t Steal Our Subway! City-wide Day of Action

When: Friday, February 22nd, 8 - 10am
Where: Subway stops across

The province's plan to steal our subway is not a done deal! Join transit riders at subway stops across Toronto on February 22nd to send a message to Premier Ford: Don't Steal Our Subway!

Breaking apart the TTC and handing over the subway to developers and the private sector will mean higher fares and less accountability. If the province is serious about fixing overcrowding, delays, and unaffordable fares - and it should be - proper funding for the TTC is the answer.

Join us at a subway stop near you at 8am to distribute flyers. Then we'll converge at Queen's Park Station at 9:30am.

Feb 21, 2019 - Ending The Deadly Housing Crisis

When: Thursday, February 21st, 6pm
Where: CRC at 40 Oaks, 40 Oak St.

The lives of 6 homeless people came to a gruesome end this January. Their lives were cut short not because of choices they made, but because of the choices made for them by John Tory, Doug Ford and Justin Trudeau. It is clear all three levels of government need to act urgently to end these preventable deaths, alleviate suffering in cramped facilities, and build rent-geared-to-income housing. Yet, neither government is willing to do so.

They disorient us by blaming refugees, mental health issues, and addictions for the housing crisis. They hope we'll take the bait and attack each other as we get reeled out of housing and dumped onto the streets. The battle ahead is difficult, but it's one we must win. So join us to take inspiration from ongoing battles, learn from past ones, ask questions, and build connections with struggles outside Toronto.

Feb 21, 2019 - Reclamation: Feminism, Labour and the (Un)Learning Of (Radical) History

When: Thursday, February 21st, 6pm
Where: 519 Kaneff Tower, York University

Global Labour Research Centre's John Eleen Annual Lecture in Global Labour

Over the past decade, dynamic and visible social movements have brought many to the streets in protest: Black Lives Matter, Idle No More, #MeToo, The Women's March.

While these movements have garnered attention and action, deep, vital, transformational change remains elusive. This talk will explore past and contemporary manifestations of feminist and anti-racist struggles for economic justice, human rights, and an end to violence. 

Lecturer: Kike Roach, Unifor National Chair in Social Justice and Democracy at Ryerson University | www.eventbrite.ca
