A list of activities and statements organized by Alliance Against Displacement (now known as Red Braid Alliance for Decolonial Socialism) does not tell the whole story of our 2019. What these actions, taken mostly in defence of communities under pressure from police, politicians, courts, investors, and the hateful public, do show is that AAD’s connections and relations with communities involved in struggles for survival have deepened and grown more intertwined.

The most important development for AAD in 2019 was the work behind the scenes of this constant community activity: under pressure of demands of these interwoven community relationships, we grew over our old organizational containers and began to develop new institutions for working class and urban Indigenous community power.
