Counter Rally Against Hamilton Islamophobes @ City Hall

On March 4, the "Canadian Coalition of Concerned Citizens," is holding an ironically titled "March for Freedom, Liberty & Justice." Using typical Islamophobic scare-mongering, the Coalition is calling for demonstrators to rally against Sharia Law and globalization. The underyling goal is supposedly to protest the already weak M-103 motion, condeming Islamophobia, which was recently introduced in parliament. But we know what this rally really means: the Canadian Coalition of Concerned Citizens -a fascist organization that wants to assimilate indigenous peoples, end public healthcare, institute mandatory military service, criminalize dissent, and end access to abortion- is planning to rally against Muslims and for white-supremacy.

https://www.facebook.com/events/296326217437171/

We will not let this go unopposed. Fascism will not be given breathing room in Hamilton.

We call on all Hamiltonians to come together with thousands of others across Canada and rally against fascism.

Please bring banners and noise-makers: we will be disrupting the "March for Freedom, Liberty & Justice". No platform for fascists.

Stay safe!

-Hamilton Against Fascism
-Revolutionary Communist Party - Hamilton
-Committee of Progressive Pakistani Canadians
-McMaster Muslims for Peace and Justice
-Westdale Social Action Committee
-Westdale Muslim Student Association

When:11 am - 2 pm

Where: Hamilton City Hall, 71 Main Street West, Hamilton, ON
