Bikes at Work

For most North Americans, bicycles have for generations been regarded mainly as recreational or sporting equipment for the privileged and means to get around for those who can’t afford a car. This has had design impacts, related to both the types of bicycles being manufactured and sold and the environments designed for their use, as well as social, cultural, environmental and health impacts.

While the bicycle evolved into a vehicle as diversified and productive as the automobile elsewhere in the world, in North America it resulted in mainly two broad types of bike, especially after the 80s–the ubiquitous mountain bike and the road bike. While bikes were used to commute and haul stuff elsewhere, resulting in a variety of very sturdy, comfortable and heavy duty designs, in North America they became mainly lighter and faster. And there is hardly a cargo bike to be found.

But there is a renaissance under way. The bike is being reborn as a useful, productive vehicle to commute, to go out on the town, as a minivan to take the kids to school, daycare or the park, and to move goods, even whole households. This talk will explore the beginnings of this renaissance in North America

Alanis Obomsawin’s award winning documentary about the 1990 Oka Crisis, featuring in depth footage of the 78 day standoff involving Mohawks, Police & Military, as well as background to the standoff, including treaties, agreements, and the history of land appropriation.

The screening of this documentary follows last term’s screening of Sewatokwa-tshera’t: The Dish With One Spoon, by Dr Dawn Martin-Hill, regarding Six Nations land reclamation at Kanonhstaton/Caledonia.

In our discussion we will consider colonialism, land expropriation, blacklash, racism, and the role of the police and military in Indigenous land occupations, as well as the roles and reactions of government officials and non-Native neighbouring communities, paying attention to the continuity and consistency with recent, ongoing, and contemporary struggles for indigenous land and sovereignty.

It is my hope that by recognizing these connections we can better understand contemporary struggles and how to move forward, rooted in a critical understanding of colonial histories and ongoing injustices.

This film screening is brought to you by Hamiton FreeSkool’s Practical Solidarity, and the Hamilton Centre for Teaching Peace as part of Edu-Macation Mondays.

At the Edge of the World chronicles the Sea Shepherd Antarctic Campaign against a Japanese whaling fleet. The international volunteer crew, under-trained and under-equipped, develop a combination of bizarre and brilliant tactics with which to stop the whalers.

But first they must find the Japanese ships, a far more difficult challenge than ever imagined - long-time activist Paul Watson and first-time captain Alex Cornelissen employ an array of strategies in the hopes of finding an elusive adversary in the vast expanse of the Ross Sea.

With one ship (the Farley Mowat) too slow to chase down the whaling fleet, with their second ship (the Robert Hunter) unsuited for Antarctic ice conditions and with no country supporting their efforts to enforce international law, the situation becomes increasingly desperate.

Against all odds, however, a real-life pirate tale unfolds - a modern-day "David vs. Goliath" adventure.
