Justice for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (Missing Justice) invites you and yours to attend, spread the word about, and participate in this year’s Memorial March for Missing and Murdered Women on Thursday February 14th, 6pm at St. Laurent metro.
The first women’s memorial march was held in 1991 in response to the murder of a Coast Salish woman on Powell Street in Vancouver. Her name is not spoken today out of respect for the wishes of her family. Out of this sense of hopelessness and anger came an annual march on Valentine’s Day to express compassion, community, and caring for all women in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, Unceded Coast Salish Territories.
Twenty-two years later, the women’s memorial march continues to honour the lives of all missing and murdered women.
This year, Montreal holds it’s 4th Annual Memorial March.

For context on Rock Against Racism Montreal, here is an interview with founder CKUT’s Aaron Lakoff conducted by the Rebel Time Music blog, originally posted HERE!!!
Rock Against Racism started in 1976 in England…can you tell us what RAR is all about?
Sure! From what I understand about RAR, it was a movement started in London to confront the rise of the British National Party (BNP), which was a racist nationalist movement that was recruiting a lot of working class white youth. England has had a lot of problems with racism and xenophobia over the years (and still does today), but also has a proud tradition of anti-fascist activism going all the way back to the 1930s and the infamous Battle of Cable street. There is a powerful song by Oi Polloi about that incident called “Let the boots do the talking”. Anyways, I digress…There were massive outdoor concerts with some amazing bands at the time, like The Clash, X-Ray Spex, and Steel Pulse, to bring white and black youth together against the BNP. In fact, there is an awesome documentary about the Clash called Rude Boy that has some original footage from the first RAR concert in Victoria Park. For me, the original RAR was powerful because it showed that music was more than just a cultural expression, but could also be a political tool to set off movements for social justice. Also, it was the first time that punk rock and reggae were brought together in such an inspiring way, and there is a close relationship with those two genres right up to today. Those bands mentioned above are still some of my favorite bands.
