London: Anti-150th demonstration
150 years after Confederation, Canada finds itself in a world which is simultaneously globalizing and decaying, brought together yet riven with conflict, with both more wealth and more poverty than ever. At this point, the question must be asked: what does nationalism really mean? Is there a meaningful difference between nationalism and patriotism?
What is the difference between a nation-state and the country it governs?
Critical thought, and the democratic spirit, demand answers. This demonstration advocates critical assessment of the Canadian nation-state, the context of its foundation, and its imperialist, capitalist and colonialist roots and legacy. We believe such discourse is an essential and indispensable component of democracy, which must be posed in the face of nationalist enthusiasms.
We will be distributing reading material, and encourage anyone and everyone to stop by! Also, please share, etc.!
