    Call for letters

    As we continue to work on producing Issue 22 in the midst of *gestures vaguely at the state of the world* we’d like to ask you, our dear comrades and readers, to submit a letter about a piece you found interesting in our last issue. Maybe you liked our editorial reflecting on the 100 years since the Winnipeg General Strike, or you had some thoughts on our interviews with Gord Hill and Gary Kinsman? Maybe you hadn’t heard of the Rooster Town Blockade in Winnipeg, or about the internationalist resistance against Canadian mining companies happening in Toronto? Hell, maybe you read Stolen City or Policing Indigenous Movements and have a different take than our book reviewers! We want to hear it all. Letters only need to be 750-1000 words, and they can be sent to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) Thanks!

    May Day Sale

    The global pandemic has exacerbated many already-present truths about our society: that corporate welfare is more important than human welfare; that “public health” seldom includes the poor, homeless, disabled and undocumented; and that the status quo was woefully inadequate in terms of meeting basic human needs. We are at a crossroads: there will be no “going back,” no return to normalcy, once the dust settles.

    In the spirit of looking forward, we at Upping the Anti would like to ask for your support. We’re a volunteer-run journal and rely on you to keep afloat. We have over a decade of top-quality social movement content that we’d love for you to dig into as we all continue to #stayhome.

    So, to celebrate our favourite day of the year, May Day, we’d like to offer you 50% all back issues! Hurry this deal only lasts until May 6th! Simply use code MAYDAY at check out.

    And while we’re on the subject: UTA is a labour of love. Our editorial committee relies on volunteer labour to produce each issue and it’s only because of supporters like you that we can keep going! So please consider subscribing or becoming a sustainer!

    Wet’suwet’en Solidarity Statement

    Upping the Anti’s Editorial Collective would like to express its unwavering solidarity with the brave Wet’suwet’en land defenders struggling against the Coastal Gaslink pipeline and fighting for a just and decolonial future for all of us. We also support the dozens of solidarity blockades, direct actions, and rallies that have emerged over the last month from coast to coast to coast. We know there can be no economic, racial, gender, or climate justice without Indigenous justice. The fight to defend Wet’suwet’en land from capitalist and colonial invasion stands at the forefront of these struggles.

    Members of UTA’s Editorial Collective strive for our commitment to anti-colonialism and Indigenous self-determination to extend beyond a simple statement. Many of our members have been actively involved in solidarity activities in Toronto. Many of our current and past writers across the country are also actively supporting this struggle from where they are located. We strive to consistently publish writing that engages theories and practices of land defense, Indigenous solidarity, and decolonization. Now more than ever, we feel the dual need for theory-informed movements and movement-informed theories. It is in this spirit that we re-post our interview with Freda Huson and Toghestiy’s about the Unist’ot’en camp from 2015.

    Reconciliation is Dead.
    Revolution is Alive.
    All Power to the Blockades!

    Sudan. Hong Kong. Lebanon. Ecuador. Iraq. Chile. Algeria. Haiti. Egypt. We are currently witnessing the largest wave of mass revolt and public outrage since the Arab Spring. While the sparks that lit the flames of rebellion are unique––public transit fare hikes, extradition bills, fuel prices, corrupt leaders––these popular movements all assert the common desire for democracy and justice in the face of capitalism and authoritarianism.
