No More Shit!: Abolitionist and Anti-Fascist Pride 2023. No More Shit! was first used by lesbian and gay liberation activist Chris Bearchell in her speech at the Feb. 6th 1981 demo at Wellesley and Yonge against the massive police bath raids the night before. It was picked up in all the Right to Privacy Committee actions against the bath raids and police repression in 1981. At the first Pride march marking the Stonewall riots against police repression initiated by Gay Liberation Against the Right Everywhere in June 1981 “No More Shit!” was used against the police and the anti-queer, racist and anti-feminist right-wing. In 2023 we use it against continuing racist and colonialist police violence and against the right-wing and fascists attacking drag queens, trans, queer, and Black and Indigenous people.
The No Pride in Policing Coalition (NPPC) is an antiracist queer and trans group formed to support Black Lives Matter – Toronto and is focused on defunding and abolishing the police. We initiated the Pride Day 2020 Defund and Abolish All Police rally and teach-in of close to 3,000 people held at Nathan Philips Square, June 28, 2020 and the 600 person rally for defunding and abolishing the Toronto police held outside Toronto Police HQ on July 16, 2020.
