We are excited to announce the launch of the Colours of Resistance Archive (http://www.coloursofresistance.org), a collection of anti-oppression resources for movement-building.
Colours of Resistance (COR) was a grassroots network of people in the U.S. and Canada who consciously worked to develop anti-racist, multiracial politics in the movement against global capitalism. This network existed from 2000 until 2006.
While the COR network was active, members produced a zine, a website, and published articles; shared ideas through local meetings and email discussion lists; and facilitated workshops and events across Canada and the U.S. Through this work, COR members aimed to help build an anti-racist, anti-imperialist, multiracial, feminist, queer and trans liberationist, anti-authoritarian movement against global capitalism. COR members were also committed to integrating an anti-oppression framework and analysis into all of our work.
To learn more about the origins of COR, see this interview from 2003 with two of the network's founders, Pauline Hwang and Helen Luu: http://www.coloursofresistance.org/602/finding-colours-of-resistance-an-interview-with-pauline-hwang-and-helen-luu.
Over its existence, the COR network generated a substantial online collection of analyses and tools that continue to be relevant. We are pleased to offer this archive and make COR content available again. Check it out at http://www.coloursofresistance.org.
Please update any links you have to this material, and please share this archive widely with people and networks in your life who you think would find it useful.
In solidarity and struggle,
the former COR administrative collective
