Please Join Us ! Coalition for Anti-Racism Education, Action, and First Nations' Solidarity

Please join us in forming a coalition for anti-racism education, action, and solidarity with First Nations’ Peoples in the London area.

Inspired by the recently formed community based anti-racism coalition in Caledonia whose mandate is to engage in anti-racism education and activism in support of Six Nations land rights (, we hope to create a similar coalition which brings together people from First Nations and non-Indigenous communities in the London area.

Our focus will be anti-racism education initiatives of various kinds--public forums / events / media commentaries; work shops / programs for community based settings as well as the public education system—initiatives which raise awareness and generate action that supports First Nations’ land rights and sovereignty and that challenges the racism and racist violence committed against First Nations’ people everyday. Our educational approach emphasizes the connection between racism against First Nations’ people and other racisms, as well as the interconnection between colonialism, race, gender and economic oppressions (both local and global). Our goal is to promote solidarity between First Nations peoples and non-Indigenous Canadians through raising critical awareness and organizing for social change.

Our first meeting will be held:

Thursday October 26th 2006, at 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. in room W 173 (the Wemple Building) at King’s University College, 266 Epworth Ave. London Ontario. Here is a link with directions to King’s and this site also contains a map.

Please let us know if you will join us ! Respond to

Please pass this announcement on to anyone you think may be interested.

We hope to see you on the 26th !
