   I won’t pretend to any impartiality when it comes to bringing down the statues of the ‘great men’ of imperialism and colonialism. Sometimes the authorities are forced to remove these symbols of racist triumphalism under the pressure of grass roots campaigns and, on other occasions, they are dragged down by way of bold and defiant direct actions. Either way, it warms my heart to see them fall.

   Some years ago, when I worked as an organizer with the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty (OCAP), we were contacted by people from Indigenous communities along the north shore of Lake Huron. They were bringing a mass contingent to the Ontario Legislature to demand that a particular social cutback be reversed and we rallied to march in solidarity with them.
