Burrows's picture

I am an activist born and based in Winnipeg. I have an 8 year old son. I helped start the Winnipeg A-Zone, Mondragon Bookstore & Coffee House Collective, the Winnipeg local of the Canada Palestine Support Network, and the Rudolf Rocker Cultural Centre. I first got involved with activism in the anti-Apartheid and Salvadoran solidarity movements of the 1980s. In 2002, I was privileged to be able to participate in the "Olive Harvest" campaign of the ISM in the Occupied West Bank. I am currently doing a Ph.D in History at the U of Saskatchewan. My M.A. thesis was entitled: "As She Shall Deem Just: Treaty 1 and the Ethnic Cleansing of the St. Peter's Reserve, 1871-1934." Some day, I hope to put out a book related to all this: settler ideology, and the dispossession and forced relocation of the people of Peguis, in violation of Treaty 1 (not to mention a "crime against humanity").

I am a 26 year old graduate of the University of Manitoba with a degree in Labour Studies. I work for the City of Winnipeg at the Sir William Stephenson Public Library. I am a happy and active member of my union, the Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 500.

About the Sudbury Working Group

The Sudbury working-group of The Media Co-op was formed to create independent media in the North, to speak to our issues and outlooks on our communities as well as the world around us. Independent media provides an avenue for people who are wishing to gain critical perspective on the issues that matter most to us, and to give a voice to those people and stories that you won't find in the mainstream media.
