Forum Against Police Violence and Impunity

Local social justice activists recently held Montreal’s first-ever Forum Against Police Violence and Impunity.

We are gradually uploading all the audio from the Forum to this page, including reports produced by the CKUT News Collective and raw, unedited recordings.

No justice, no peace: Why people leave the police

The round-table that kicked off the Forum Against Police Violence and Impunity.

This panel featured people who either went through police training and/or were part of a police force before leaving it, to eventually become social justice activists and organizers.

With: Gaby Pedicelli, Marcel Sévigny & Will Prosper
Facilitated by: Nazila Bettache & Samir Shaheen-Hussain

SISTA 2 SISTA: Alternatives to Prisons and Police

Speakers at the Forum included New York City’s Isabel Gonzales and Loira Limal.
These women were both involved with the Sista 2 Sista project,  a collective of Black and Latina working-class women in Brooklyn that worked to build political and cultural alternatives to the systems we live in, and to build a society of liberation and love.

This report includes excerpts from their presentation, along with music including “One Thing” by Freeway and Jake One (with Raekwon), “Mathematics” by Mos Def,   and “I try” by Talib Kweli featuring Mary J. Blige:

    If you’re like me when you first saw the term “arbitrage sports betting” you just said, “huh?” You may even be reading this article because you were wondering. It is a relatively little method that can actually allow you to make money no matter who wins or loses. Kind of like heads I win, tails I win!

    Any one who bets on sports for profit will want to make sure they are getting the best sports betting odds but it doesn’t matter what you are betting on, the fact of the matter is that the house is going to be sure to come out on top. They don’t build those billion dollar casinos with winner’s money! The best odds are generally a little better and a sports bettor will likely see a return of eight to ten dollars for every hundred dollars he or she bets over a long term period.

    For quite some time the United States House of Representatives has been trying to pass a bill that will make it much more difficult for people to get away with breaking the online gambling laws. Not to mention stricter penalties for those who are caught.

    The most commonly occurring reason I have found for people consistently losing money at sports betting is that they have no “game plan”. The most essential elements of a good game plan for betting purposes are a valid, proven Selection System and a proper Staking Plan. The Staking Plan alone won’t cut it; first and foremost you must employ a worthwhile Selection System.
