Why Bill C-31 is gonna hurt.

An article by Coco and Elisha.

Comic text:
PM Stephen Hamper in The Bill-Shit C-31 or how to screw refugees (even more)
SH: “This is MY land. This is MY land. This is MY land.” (stolen land)
SH: “Ha! There are all these people trying to come to MY land and take advantage of it, lazy bums!”
SH: “WT(beep)!!! They keep on coming even with my super border guards.”
Border guards: “Stephen Hamper!”
“Stay out you parasites! What gave you the right to come to Hamper’s land?”
Refugees: “Refugee seeking is a RIGHT.” “Ugh, he’s ugly!!!”
SH: “You are milking me dry!”
Refugee: “No, I want to build my life in a safer place.”
SH: “See, they claim the right to come because they are coming from whatever genocide, bunch of crybabies. It’s not like us rich western civilized countries have contributed to their massacre or something.”
SH: “I have an idea. I am the boss. I am going to change the law.”
SH: “With my bill-shit C-31. ME ME ME ME. What a bill-shit idea! Such a smart white guy I am.”


About workequalsworthequalsinnocence

Working with animation, video, painting, drawing, installation and intervention, my interdisciplinary practice examines the complex position of culture within neoliberal capitalism and critiques modes of social control, while exploring the potential for art to function as a site of resistance. I am specifically interested in how modes of violence are perpetuated collectively through popular narratives, concepts of justice and denial of accountability. Frequently engaging with communities and collectives, my practice eschews individual authorship in favour of collaboration. This has included an ongoing commitment to working with women and youth who are in conflict with the law, through the creation of art projects in prisons as well as at numerous centres that support marginalized people. In 2008, I completed an MFA through the Public Art and New Artistic Strategies program at the Bauhaus University (Weimar, Germany). My work has been shown nationally and internationally in festivals, screenings, artist run centres and museums. I am currently employed as an Assistant Professor of Studio Arts at Concordia University. http://jessicamaccormackrmack.tumblr.com/
