On Thursday, people from diverse Montreal communities will gather outside the offices of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) to 'profile the profilers'. The group will photograph, record and question people entering the offices. The action aims to turn the tables on CSIS, whose agents routinely conduct intimidation visits to homes and workplaces, ask inappropriate questions about political beliefs and religious practices, and harass people based on their profile and associations. The theatrical action is part of the CSIS Watch campaign of the People's Commission Network, launched publicly in a press conference in January 2012. Almost eighty organizations - including student groups, unions, activist collectives, community organizations - have endorsed the call to cease all cooperation with CSIS. The action also takes place in the context of a month against police brutality and political repression in Montreal.
