The WCCC [Toronto] presents the Recognized author & Toronto G20 Political Prisoner, KELLY PFLUG BACK, Speaking for the First Time upon her Release from Prison.

Kelly will officially be launching her poetry book, “These Burning Streets” upon her release from Vanier Correctional Centre for Women, where she has spent the last 7 months in prison for having allegedly participated in the riots during the Toronto G20 Summit in 2010. She is a published poet and author as well as a well known activist for her work in anti-poverty and harm reduction organizing. She will be sharing her experience within the prison industrial complex, where prison serves as a Patriarchical tool to confine and dispose the bodies of those that do not conform to the norms of society, specifically in the case of women.

TORONTO, MARCH 9TH: “Weichan! In Times of War… Destroy the Patriarchical Prison System!”

8PM @ The Graduates Students Union at the University of Toronto, 16 Bancroft Avenue

Hosted by the WCCC [Toronto]

The history of women has been plagued with humiliations and scorn on the part of various systems of slavery and submission that have existed. Domination, colonialism and violence have always been unleashed on the bodies of women – and with it the earth – as part of the structural patriarchy that has continued the rape, plunder and genocide of the land and its indigenous peoples. The prison system is the vivid expression of this structural violence – forcing all those who refuse to submit to the colonial norms to submit their bodies and their lives to the will of power and capital. However, much resistance has risen from the depth of this brutality.

This International Women’s Day, we have nothing to celebrate and everything to fight back.

WE DENOUNCE THE STRUCTURAL VIOLENCE OF THE JUDICIAL/PRISON SYSTEM ON OUR COMMUNITIES IN RESISTANCE AGAINST COLONIALISM, CAPITALISM & PATRIARCHY ON THIS STOLEN LAND!!

WE DENOUNCE THE USE OF FEMALE COPS USING ISSUES OF VIOLENCE TO INFILTRATE AND IMPRISON OUR SISTERS AND BROTHERS!!

DOWN WITH THE PRISON SYSTEM! FREE OUR POLITICAL PRISONERS!!

They may imprison our bodies, but they can never imprison our desire to struggle; to be free.
