WEDIACTIVISTS GAME

As part of its collaboration with Les Offices jeunesse internationaux du Québec (Lojiq) (Québec Youth International Offices), sponsor of the NON A LA HAINE (No Hate Speech Movement) campaign in Québec, the CPRLV is using a new interactive tool: the game WediActivists.

This Quebec adaptation of the interactive game, WediActivists, designed to raise awareness of cyber citizenship, aims mainly to address the issue of online hate speech and encourage reflection on responsible behaviour. Is there a limit to freedom of expression? Do words we consider acceptable, even funny, necessarily have to be acceptable to our neighbour? This educational game will certainly stimulate lively discussions and challenges.

For more information on the project and to find out how a CPRLV counsellor can come to your community to facilitate a workshop, please write to info@info-radical.org.

THEATRICAL PERFORMANCE – CAPTIVES (EMBRIGADÉS)

Following a two-year-long collaboration between the CPRLV and the collective Les Pentures, the play Captives (Embrigadés) was created as an education and prevention tool geared towards school and community environments. Drawing its inspiration from real stories and real-life events, Captives (Embrigadés) permits us to see radicalization from a humane and intimate perspective, and helps create spaces for the discussion of both radicalization and the polarization of ideas.

The CPRLV provides the following accompanying tools as complements to Captives (Embrigadés):

  • Preparation workshop before the play
  • Guided discussion following the play
  • Educational guide (in French only)

If you would like Captives (Embrigadés) to be shown in your community, or if you have any questions, please write to lespentures@gmail.com or info@info-radical.org

*The play is only offered in French.


SHORT FILM – I WAS WRONG

The short film I Was Wrong is a project for prevention and awareness-raising on radicalization, particularly with regard to right-wing extremism. The activity resulting from this prevention and awareness-raising project, to which a former right-wing extremist has committed himself for prevention, opens up spaces for dialogue on racism, intolerance and violence. This activity may be of interest to youth workers and school staff.

For more information on the project and to find out how a CPRLV counsellor can come to your community to facilitate a workshop, please write to info@info-radical.org.

Educator’s Guide available in French


VIEWING OF VIDEO STORIES – MY STORY

The CPRLV has launched its My Story project, which consists of a series of anonymous audiovisual stories shared by individuals and families supported by the organisation, with the objective of raising awareness among citizens about the consequences of radicalization leading to violence. Some of the people we support shared their testimony for the first time through this audiovisual project. The CPRLV can facilitate a discussion session following the viewing of these videos, in order to explain the factors and circumstances that lead to violent radicalization, to measure the impact of radicalization on loved ones and to understand what leads to social reintegration.

For more information on the project and to find out how a CPRLV counsellor can come to your community to facilitate a workshop, please write to info@info-radical.org.


DOCUMENTARY – LA BOMBE

Based on the career of Maxime Fiest, a former neo-Nazi, the documentary La Bombe evokes the theme of right-wing extremism in the Quebec context. Created with the ambition of stimulating our collective reflection on this subject, the documentary also explores the resurgence of right-wing radical groups in Quebec and explores the mechanisms of the radicalization paths that lead to them through the history of Maxime Fiset.

La Bombe is a preventive and educational tool for anyone who wants to better understand the phenomenon of violent extremism. The CPRLV offers discussion workshops following the screening of the documentary.

For more information on the project and to find out how a CPRLV counsellor can come to your community to facilitate a workshop, please write to info@info-radical.org.


COMIC BOOKS – RADICALISHOW

Through Radicalishow 1, 2 and 3, the CPRLV created comic books for awareness-raising purposes inspired by the stories of people supported by the organisation. The first episode of this series looks back at the experiences of three people who have become radicalized and tried to leave the country. The second volume discusses the family tensions associated with these experiences. The third comic book is a work on the violent right-wing extremist.
