The City of Victoria, located on unceeded Songhees & Esquimalt Territories, is celebrating 150 years of colonialism through events that promote historical erasure and the triumphalism of the State. This year’s Victoria Anarchist Bookfair responds by celebrating 150 years of Indigenous resistance and anarchist traditions of anti-capitalist, anti-authortarian activism. Colonialism is an on-going project that needs to be dismantled: to this end, we are mobilizing to build opposition against the Northern Gateway Pipeline and other such proposals.
Saturday, 11:30 begins with Acknowledging the Territories & Welcome Songs by August Thomas and the Esquimalt Singers and Dancers
