Long Live People’s Resistance

Saturday, September 17, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

| $5

A cultural night commemorating the Resistance Against 15 Years of War in Afghanistan

It has been 15 long years since the imperialist occupation of Afghanistan in the so-called “Global War on Terror” began. But it has also been 15 long years of people’s active resistance against foreign invaders, including Canadian imperialism and ISIS.

Coming from a strong legacy of struggle, Afghanistan is rich with ongoing revolutionary and grassroots movements that warrant our support here in Canada.  In the spirit of internationalism, artists and cultural workers from different communities and activist traditions come together to express our international solidarity to the people of Afghanistan through anti-imperialist poetry, art and performances.

Organized by the Stop the Imperialist War in Afghanistan Coalition, the cultural night aims to highlight the interconnectedness of our struggles of state-violence, racism, and systemic poverty to the struggles of oppressed nations abroad. This event is part of a build-up to a Day of Action on October 7, 2016.

We invite all groups and individuals who wish to get involved in the Stop the Imperialist War in Afghanistan Campaign or who would like to learn more about the history of Afghanistan and on-going resistance
