People's Global Action Bloc: Solidarity & Unity Statement
August 12, 2007
This statement aims to encourage solidarity and unity amongst the diverse protesters and groups who will be demonstrating our progressive anti-racist opposition to the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) and the Bush/Harper/Calderon meeting in Montebello, Quebec this August 20-21, 2007.
It's clear that the police and security forces -- in complicity with the state and corporate proponents of the SPP, as well as sensationalist mainstream media -- utilize a strategy of divide and rule. They distinguish between "good" and "bad" protesters to weaken social movements.
