Bring your friends (and candles)!
Join us for first-hand reports from Montreal delegates who took part in an international conference in the Philippines of the world's largest anti-imperialist and democratic formation of it's kind.
The evening will feature Louisa Worrell, organiser from the Immigrant Workers Centre* (CTI-IWC), and Inti Barrios from Women of Diverse Origins* (FDO-WDO) and the Bloc d'Artiste.
They will speak about their experience at the 5th International Assembly of the International League of Peoples' Struggle (ILPS) held in November in Manila, Philippines. The conference took place in the context of an international mobilization to expose and oppose the meeting in Manila of the imperialist-led Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC). Justin Trudeau attended APEC as the representative of Canadian imperialism.

Louisa and Inti will also talk about their post-Assembly exposure trip with sugar worker communities on the island of Negros.
All progressives and anti-imperialists are welcome! ILPS in Quebec extends a special invitation to member organizations and friends to share about their struggles. We can thus work together to advance and widen the anti-imperialist circle in Quebec and beyond.
Please bring candles for an anti-imperialist solidarity action at the end of the event!
French-English translation and snacks will be provided. Free event, donations welcome.
