Presented at the March 20, 2021 Scarborough-Rouge Park Ontario NDP AGM.
Whereas Asian women working in Asian massage parlours were targeted and murdered in Atlanta.
Whereas White Supremacy in public spaces is creating unsafe, hateful conditions for members of the Asian Community.
Whereas Anti-Racism calls for the emancipation and solidarity of all Black, Indigenous, People of Colour, and Racialized Folks.
Let it be resolved that the Scarborough-Rouge Park Ontario NDP stands strongly against White Supremacy as a series of systems, actions, and ideas that are the major contributor to Anti-Black, Anti-Indidgenous, Anti-Asian, Anti-Newcomer hatred and more. We as a Riding Association do not tolerate this hatred and actively seek emancipation for all peoples and the dismantling of oppressive systems, ideas, and policies. We acknowledge and grieve the targeted murder of Asian women in Atlanta and condemn White Terrorism that can and does happen in Canada.
