Montreal’s first Haitian street gang

Les Bélangers, Montreal’s first Haitian street gang, wasn’t the criminal enterprise it was painted as by Quebec police and a willing media in Canada in the 1980s. At first, it wasn’t even a gang; it was a group of friends who fought back against the racist violence that their community was routinely subjected to in city parks and schools, on the metro and in downtown bars. We are joined by the leader of Les Bélangers, Maxime Aurélien, and by Ted Rutland, professor at Concordia University in Montreal; they are together the authors of Out to Defend Ourselves: A History of Montreal’s First Haitian Street Gang.

Mohawk Warrior Society

The Mohawk Warrior Society is one of the most successful militant organizations in North America. Their predecessors were key to the defeat of the French in Quebec and the United States in the War of 1812. Today, the Warriors are best known for their role in the 1990 Oka standoff against the Canadian army. In the new book, The Mohawk Warrior Society: A Handbook on Sovereignty and Survival, the movement for the first time tells its own history.

We are joined by the editors of this unique anthology of resistance, Philippe Blouin, Matt Peterson, Malek Rasamny and Kahentinetha Rotiskarewake and also by Kwetiio and Karennatha who, along with Kahentinetha, are members of the group Kanien’kehà:ka Kanistansera, the Mohawk Mothers.

Anti-Racist Action

Anti-Racist Action was unified behind a basic principle: “We go where they go. Whenever fascists are organizing or active in public, we’re there.” What began as street fighting in the punk scene soon developed into a militant direct action network with chapters across the US and Canada. Authors, KRISTIN SCHWARTZ and MICHAEL STAUDENMAIER, join us to talk about the newly released movement history, We Go Where They Go: The Story of Anti-Racist Action.
