UPDATE: Representatives of the PCR-RCP Canada will testify on Saturday, September 13th at 3:10pm.

The People’s Commission on Political Repression—a citizens’ initiative supported by the “Association pour la Liberté d’Expression”—invites you to take part in its public hearings.

The Commission wishes to give a voice to victims and witnesses of political repression in Québec since 1990. “Political repression” not only refers to legal and legislative repression, but also the repression by the media and the police. Through testimonies and briefs, the project also aims to evaluate its effects on individuals and groups advocating for various causes (Indigenous resistance, feminist, anti-capitalist, ecologist, student, anti-globalization, anarchist, trade unionist, etc.). A report will be prepared and made public after the hearings.

The Commission relies on the support of three standing commissioners and one local commissioner in each city where hearings will be held. They are:

  • Céline Bellot, Professor at the Social Services School from the Université de Montréal;
  • Francis Dupuis-Déri, Political Science Professor at UQAM;
  • Lucie Lemonde, Professor at UQAM Law School;
  • Will Prosper, spokesperson for Montréal-Nord Républik (a local community group).

Additional hearings will be held in Québec City on October 27 and later this Fall at Uashat Mak Mani-Utenam, Gatineau, Kanesatake and Sherbrooke.

To take part, you can fill the online form (www.cprp.info/participer) or simply drop a note at temoignages@cprp.info.

The PCR-RCP Canada will take part in the Montréal hearings and will give details of political harassment that the Party and its supporters have been victims of since 2007.
