These terrible moments of anti-Asian racism are not only problems of bad individuals – they are a direct expression of the anxieties of Anglo-American empire in response to China's economic rise.
Red Braid opposes the Western imperialist bloc that is reassembling against China, and especially, Canada’s central role in it. We believe the working class in the West must stand with the working class in China, not with Western imperial power. That means opposing war on China without compromise, and fighting sinophobia and the Canadian state head on.
In response to the Stewart Squat, Red Braid received questions and critiques from Indigenous youth and others who support the struggles of low-income Indigenous and working-class people against the forces of colonialism and capitalism. We’ve been going through posts and comments, grouping them under some themes, and have responded here.
We fight for Wet’suwet’en sovereignty, the extinction of fossil fuel capitalism, and the defeat of Canada
Alliance Against Displacement is on the side of the Wet’suwet’en nation, and of all Indigenous peoples and nations against Canada’s imperialist rule of law.
We stand with the Black Vests, a group of undocumented immigrants living in shelters and the streets across Paris Region, against criminalization and displacement.
We call for the City of Vancouver to defund Vancouver Rape Relief, an organization that enacts violence against trans and two-spirit people.
