The Peoples’ Social Forum (PSF) is a critical public space aimed at fostering activist involvement of individuals and civil society organizations that want to transform Canada as it exists today. It is a space for social movements to meet and converge, for the free expression of alternative ideas and grassroots exchanges. The PSF is an inclusive space that must be occupied by all people and activist organizations convinced that another Canada is not only possible, but above all, necessary. (More info…)
The PSF Niagara Committee has come together to raise awareness and support local grassroots organizers. Nona Bader, who is coordinating the Niagara delegation, stresses that it is important to recognize the diverse experiences and realities of people living in different parts of Canada. It is, for example, Niagara residents who face the highest unemployment rates in Canada. She also supports solidarity across classes, races, and genders in order to address complex social problems such as poverty reduction and racism.
The Niagara committee welcomes the support of the community and will be holding a fundraiser this Sunday, August 3rd at 7pm (Rise Above, 120 St. Paul Street, St. Catharines) to help raise money to pay for buses, food, and lodging.
Pay what you can and bring any nonperishable food items to support the PSF Niagara delegation.
