Over the past year, we have seen the rise of Islamophobia and hate by a white supremacist movement emboldened by the election of Donald Trump and the support of far-right politicians in Europe. These white supremacists have sought to spread their racist hate by organizing rallies at Nathan Phillips Square. While these islamophobes may attempt to interrupt our demonstrations of solidarity, we must show that their message of hate has no place in our streets, and our message of peace is infinitely more powerful.

This event will take place on the territory of the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. The territory was the subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy and Confederacy of the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes.

If your organization would like to endorse the rally, please message our Facebook page to be added to the list!
