On July 1, while neighbourhoods across Canada will be chanting the national anthem in celebration of Canada Day, the Anti-colonial July 1 Committee will be cheering “Ni patrie, ni état, ni Québec, ni Canada” during their disruption of these festivities in Montreal’s Old Port.

The Anticolonial July 1st Committee–an organization committed to resisting against Canada and all colonial borders–will be holding a night demonstration on July 1 at 7 p.m. in Place Jacques-Quartier in protest of Canada Day. According to the Committee, this day commemorates the ongoing violence and destruction of First Nations people, blacks, and migrants in Canada.

CKUT’s Emma Noradounkian spoke with Laura, a member of the Committee, to find out more about the demonstration.
