The Red Review

Nov 29 2021 • 1 hr


All the people who work on The Red Review live and work on stolen Indigenous lands across Turtle Island. There can be no reconciliation without restitution, which includes Land Back and seizing the assets of the major resource corporations and returning them to the commons.

In this bonus episode of The Red Review, brought to you by Socialist Action, Daniel interviews Fifi, a lead organizer with Tigrayan Advocacy Canada. Fifi is a graduate student in the field of international political economy. Her research focuses on the political economy of development and urbanization in the African context

For over a year, the Ethiopian State, led by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, wages a genocidal campaign against the Tigrayan people. While the Ethiopian State weaponizes famine, gender- and sexual-based violence, massacres, and concentration camps to eliminate Tigrayan people, the Canadian State remains silent on the conduct of its diplomatic and economic partner. Worse, Canadian mining companies are treating the current war as an opportunity — a 'bonanza' — to secure access to gold deposits in Tigray.
