MYSEUM INTERSECTIONS: QUARANTINE EDITION

Images of Resistance: An Archive of Action


Images of Resistance: An Archive of Action is an online photo essay exhibition that explores the untold stories of the 2008-2009 Toronto Protests against the Genocidal War in Sri Lanka. Mobilized by members of the Tamil Canadian community, these demonstrations brought together tens of thousands of protesters during the months of September 2008 to June 2009, culminating notably in the Gardiner Expressway blockade.

This project is organized by the Tamil Canadian Centre for Civic Action in collaboration with Neethan Shan, Thevya Balendran and Hiba Abdallah.
