Hey look I'm in the news:

and I just want to say that the student strike today in Montreal, 200,000 people, was just beautiful!

Tangled Roots: Dialogues exploring ecological justice, healing, and decolonization

Matt Soltys is writing a book. It's a collection of interviews he has done through Healing the Earth Radio, titled Tangled Roots: Dialogues exploring ecological justice, healing, and decolonization. It's coming out this summer.

As of today, Matt's launching his book's website and a fundraising website to sell advance copies. His website is, and there's a fundraising website where you can buy copies in advance to raise money for printing at

Check it out! And it would be a huge help if you could pass this on to anyone you can possibly think about who may be interested in supporting this project by getting a copy. It's a book that Matt hopes will appeal to a range of people, including left-leaning and enviro-minded folks, and those who are already fairly radicalized.

Poem to post on Macdonald campus walls during the strike

Have you listened to Jim Nicell
referring to himself as “we?”
Nice, hell, Jim's a fuss about
institutional emergency.

Jim has told us that he has
a response team who decides
to send us emails, to communicate
with the rest of us. Besides,

He advises we avoid Sherbrooke Street
and the people waiting there.
He wants you to know about those things
that might unsettle, disturb, or scare
Of unlawful students you ought to be
especially aware.

While it is safe to leave buildings
(sometimes it is quite quiet)
Jim warns us to be cautious
of downtown's simmering riot.

He warns us specifically
of the south and east,
because that's where the students clash
with Montreal police.

That tricky bureaucrat!
Shall we let him decide
to manipulate us, saying
“For the moment, stay inside”?
