SOAR Call to Action

You didn’t think Riot 2010 was over yet, did you? Day to day, the tentacles of global capitalism threaten to choke the life from us, and opportunities to attack its nucleus rarely present themselves. Rest assured that when the G20 comes within striking distance this June, we won’t miss.

The G20 will be descending upon the part of Turtle Island now known as Toronto. The secretive meetings will be attended by the heads of state and financial ministers of the twenty most powerful economies and the managers of global financial institutions like the IMF, and the World Bank. They seek to resurrect and ensure their own dominance over the failing global capitalist economy, a process which spells oppression and exploitation for us all, along with the continuing wholesale ecological destruction of our planet.

Join us in Toronto for an anti-capitalist, anti-authoritarian, anti-colonial, anti-racist, anti-patriarchy, anti-ableist, and queer positive convergence June 25-27, 2010. Below are the actions we are calling for…

Get Off the Fence!

June 26, 2010 Saturday afternoon, after the permitted march.

Exact time and location TBA

A 3-meter high perimeter fence, with military style checkpoints will be erected in downtown Toronto during the G20 meetings, offering us a hint of the world they seek to impose. It’s time to stop sitting on the fence and start tearing it down. Join us on Saturday afternoon, immediately following the Labour Union rally, for a militant march to the summit!

Saturday Night Fever!

June 26, 2010 Late night Saturday

Exact time and location TBA

On Saturday night, before we run them out of town the next day, there will be a radical dance party in the streets. Put on your fiercest clothes and boogie like Emma Goldman. Screw the clubs; there’s no cover but your mask.

Autonomous Direct Action!

June 27, 2010 Location: EVERYWHERE Time: Sunday

As the G20 delegates wrap things up and prepare to spread like a virus across the globe, our resistance will do the same. This will be a day of diverse, decentralized actions against the corporate and state structures that have dominated our lives far beyond the G20 summit. These coordinated actions will end at a specific (to be announced) time, and will culminate in a…

Victory Demo!

June 27, 2010 Sunday Afternoon

Exact time and location TBA

Don’t leave town just yet, we’re going to end the convergence with a bang – not a whimper. We support a diversity of tactics. We encourage everyone to form affinity groups and execute strategic action throughout the summit and beyond. But please remember to respect local communities, develop your knowledge of local background, and remember that, good or bad, the effects of your actions endure long after the convergence has ended.

These are just a few of the actions that will take place during the convergence. We strongly encourage all those who would fight alongside us to also support the other actions called for from the 21st through the 27th, coordinated by the Toronto Community Mobilization Network, and to do so in the spirit that those actions were called by taking direction from communities on the ground. These callouts will be refined and developed over time.

This is our first Call to Action. Keep your eyes and ears open for updates that will end up linked at

To get in touch, email us: See you in June!
