Everyone Welcome!

The Decolonial Study Group is a new project of the IPSM Ottawa.  We will be deepening and broadening our understanding and analysis of indigenous struggles for decolonization, social justice and revolution.  We will be doing this through readings, workshops, oral presentations, movies and so on.

The reading for this first Decolonial Study Group will be “Decolonizing Anti-Racism” by Bonita Lawrence and Enakshi Dua.

[[[ WHO WE ARE ]]]

UPPING THE ANTI: A JOURNAL OF THEORY AND ACTION is a radical journal published twice a year by a pan-Canadian collective of activists and organizers.

We are dedicated to publishing radical theory and analysis about struggles against capitalism, imperialism, and all forms of oppression.

In our first seven issues, we’ve published articles by and interviews with renowned activists and intellectuals, including Aijaz Ahmad, Himani Bannerji, Grace Lee Boggs, Ward Churchill, Michael Hardt, John Holloway, Sunera Thobani, and many more.

In every issue, activists and organizers reflect on the state of contemporary organizing in Canada and beyond. We publish theoretical and critical articles, interviews and roundtables. UPPING THE ANTI also includes a book review section where activists assess new writing on the Left.
