citizens in Action, a non-profit, non-partisan, progressive group of concerned

citizens, dedicated to political, social & economic justice is honoured to present:

The imeasurable Influence of BigPharma

by guest-speaker Professor, writer & public speaker:

Jean-Claude St-Onge

Mr. St-Onge has written several books on the atrocities committed by Big Pharma.

In his latest book, «Tous fous,» he details how in the course of a few years,

Big Pharma has succeeded in converting life's simple worries and

ordinary unhappiness, into an array of mental illnesses, and as such

amenable to pharmacological treatment.

This undue influence is at the heart of a false epidemic of mental disorders,

that has given rise to over-diagnosis and overtreatment.

Come and find out more about this modern dilemma

and bring your friends too.

To be followed by a discussion period

Date: May 12, 2015

Place: Concordia's School of Community & Public Affairs,

basement 2149 Mackay,

(between Sherbrooke & de Maisonneuve)

metro Guy/Concordia

Time: 7.00 p.m. sharp

N. B. We usually meet second Tuesday of each month, to tackle

a different political issue, at Concordia University, same time, same place.

For further information, please call the founder & coordinator of the group,

We encourage artists of every discipline to explore this theme in whichever

way they want." If you are artist, sponsors, community organizers

we would love to hear about your suggestions, propositions, participations.

La Nouvelle Croisade/The New Crusade Judith Brisson paintings

Artist Judith Brisson presents two recent paintings from her War Series

- a twelve year artistic/activist exploration of militarism, propaganda,

imperialism, and racism that have characterized the US and

Canadian war aggressions in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria.

Judith Brisson is an educator and an MFA student at the Vermont College

of Fine Arts, a human rights defender and an independent multidisciplinary

artist who creates, site-specific installations around ideas of peace and

reconciliation. In recent years, Judith has attempted to bridge the gap

between art-making and activism through a variety of means - from furtive

practices, to sociallym- engaged visual works, to collaborations that engage

with others, whether artists or the general public, to generate new ideas

around creating peace.

Termite Collective live art visioning and radio recording session

Currently serving his 32nd year of a life sentence in Bath Penitentiary

(Bath, Ontario), Peter Collins is a frequent contributor to the Journal of

Prisoners on Prison (JPP) and Upping The Anti, a regular commentator

for Canadian Prison Radio shows, and a renowned and prolific political artist. Expected to live only months since his cancer has progressed, his friends

and family have requested that those who have been touched by his

contributions over the years to share their thoughts. The Termite Collective

is organizing a live art visioning and recording session as part of the

Montreal Anarchist Bookfair's Art and Anarchy Exhibit. We invite attendees

to come share their thoughts on Peter Collins' artwork.

 

The Termite Collective is a group of creative and concerned people who

writing, workshops, political parody, and criminal cabaret.

stencil, illustration, comics and muralism. His work has been featured in

art spaces and websites such as Electronic Intifada, in newspapers in Lebanon,

as well as on a Noam Chomsky book cover. He has participated in group shows

such as Artists Against the Israeli Occupation, in both Montreal and Tokyo,

Justseeds Artists' Cooperative various posters and prints

Justseeds Artists' Cooperative is a decentralized network of 24 artists committed

to making print and design work that reflects a radical social, environmental,

and political stance. With members working from the U.S., Canada, and

Mexico, Justseeds operates both as a unified collaboration of similarly

minded printmakers and as a loose collection of creative individuals with

unique viewpoints and working methods. We believe in the transformative power

of personal expression in concert with collective action. To this end, we

produce collective portfolios, contribute graphics to grassroots struggles for

justice, work collaboratively both in- and outside the co-op, build large

sculptural installations in galleries, and wheatpaste on the streets - all while

çoffering each other daily support as allies and friends.

#DecolonizeFeminism Radical Indigenous Survivance & Empowerment /

Demian DinéYazhi' print

#DecolonizeFeminism is a poster project initiated by R.I.S.E.:

Radical Indigenous Survivance & Empowerment in 2014.

The poster series highlights Indigenous women as prominent figures in

the mainstream feminist movement, while appropriating images of Indigenous

women that have created a romanticized, sexualized, and stereotyped perspective

of the Indigenous body in post-colonial Native america. Lastly, it deconstructs

the flag of the U.S. and re-contextualizes it in a mock Native design.

The posters are inspired by "Indigenous Feminism Without Apology", written by

Indigenous Cherokee intellectual/warrior Andrea Smith. In the piece she

challenges the mainstream white, liberal feminist movement and posits what

the movement would look like if one were to re-center the movement around the

struggles of women of colour. The term's "No Wave", "Decolonize", and "Proto"

become terms of resistance to the various waves of feminism that postdate

hetero-patriarchal resistance enacted by Native matriarchal societies since 1492.

 

R.I.S.E. is a Native founded & operated artist/activist/warrior collective.

We are dedicated to the education & perseverance of Native art & culture.

R.I.S.E. is Demian DinéYazhi', Kaila Farrell-Smith, & Thomas GreyEyes.

Toxic Tour 2015 Swarm painting

Chemical Valley (located outside of Sarnia, Ontario) has the highest concentration

of petrochemical plants in the nation. The pollution from these plants

disproportionately affects members of the Aamjiwnaang First Nation community.

Every year Aamjiwnaang & Sarnia Against Pipelines (ASAP) hosts Toxic Tours

to raise awareness of the chemical valley and the impacts of resource extraction

on their community. Aamjiwnaang is surrouned by 40% of Canada's

petrochemical industry, with refineries such as Suncor, Shell, DOW Chemicals,

and Lanxess as neighbours. This piece was originally live painted by Swarm f

or Nuit Blanche in collaboration and consultation with Aamjiwnaang &

Sarnia Against Pipelines. The goal of the piece is to promote the issue

and the Toxic Tour coming up in September 2015.

Swarm is a street artist who started in Toronto and is now currently

based in Montréal.

Enclosure, Contact, Carbon Bubble, Plan Nord David Whiteside acrylic,

chalk pastel, and china marker on paper

 

I repeat the image of a four-sided wall imposed on the landscape, enclosing a tree

or sometimes a smokestack, as a reflection on capitalist concepts of land

ownership and how it facilitates colonialism and the expansion of the global

industrial system.

About David Whiteside; I am a recovering fine artist. Painting and making prints

for non-commercial, non-professional reasons has become one of my acts

of resistance in a dehumanized, productivity-oriented society.

Ta blessure de flic photographie

Né pendant le Printemps2015, "Ta blessure de flic" se veut un projet d'art

collectif permettant aux personnes qui ont été blessées par les forces policières

de se réapproprier leurs corps en rendant visible les résultats de ce qu'elles

ont vécu. La consigne est simple : suite à un événement malheureux,

nous encourageons ceux et celles qui le désirent à nous envoyer une

photographie des traces de la violence qu'illes ont subi.es avec une

courte description du contexte.

Un titre est ajouté à la photographie et elle est publiée sur un tumblr et Facebook.

Lorsque c'était désiré, les participant.es ont aussi reçu un soutien moral ainsi

que le nom de différentes ressources qui pourraient leur venir en aide.

À ce jour, une soixantaine de personnes ont participé au projet.
