Happy Earth Day everyone!

Thinking about how you could do more to reduce your carbon footprint? UVic’s Gustavson’s School of Business has created a wonderful Low-Carbon Culture Helplist to guide how we can all conserve energy and reduce waste in the workplace and at home.

 

NEWS

 

Tom Pederson of UVic-led Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions is quoted in various media stories regarding the content of documents obtained by the Canadian Press that show how staff inside the BC Ministry of the Environment have warned the environment minister about the potentially huge increases in greenhouse gas emissions from the LNG fracking process. The biggest concern is the often under-reported amount of methane, a gas 21 times more deadly to the atmosphere than carbon dioxide, that is released during the...

Exposing the Invisible: host a screening?

Dear Occupy Victoria,

My name is Ling Luther and I am from the Tactical Technology
Collective. I am writing to tell you about our film series, Exposing
the Invisible, which is being screened worldwide by groups like
yourselves. I think the people involved with the Occupy Movement would
be interested in the content of these films (e.g. citizen activism,
exposing corrupted corporate power, corporate landgrabbing, house
demolitions, "invisible" warfare), and I would be pleased if you
wanted to host a screening in Victoria.

Please continue reading for more information and contact me if you are
interested in hosting a screening (or you can direct me to anyone who
might be), and I can answer any questions you may have.

We started this project in 2013, where we produced 3 short documentary
films, 7 video sketches and 20 in-depth interviews, and brought
together over 80 resources. There are three films in the series that
tell the personal stories of those working at the new frontiers of
investigation: one about the methods that an inspiring investigative
reporter and his team use to expose organised crime and corrupted
corporate power; the second about three individuals who use innovative
tools and tactics to develop their own investigations into the war in
Syria, landgrabbing in Lebanon and house demolitions in Palestine; the
third explores the physical, moral and political invisibility of US
drone warfare in Pakistan.

The films can be watched and downloaded here for free:
https://exposingtheinvisible.org/films/.

The current list of screenings can be found  here:
https://exposingtheinvisible.org/screenings/. All the content we made
available is licensed under creative commons, which means - take it,
use it, remix it, embed it and watch it. You can pick any film or its
parts, add your own content, invite guests, set the topic, make the
screenings last 30 or 120 minutes - all up to you.

Kind regards,
Ling

Violence in Venezuela

Hi friends,

On March 12 we held a public event in Victoria. Our guests were Merli Vanegas, the Venezuelan Consul General from Vancouver and her assistant Maria Stella Paredes. Our organization was trying to bring some balance to this community regarding the present political situation in Venezuela which has been negatively portrayed in very biased, anti-government media coverage.  Merli and Maria Stella spoke eloquently about recent violent demonstrations and blockades that have been taking place in only 13 of the wealthiest areas in a huge country that has several hundred districts. They explained that the violence has been perpetrated by affluent Venezuelans supported by extreme right wing elements backed by US and other Western agents attempting to bring the government down.  Most of Venezuelans are poor, but actually support the government which they have shown by repeatedly electing Chavistas and their programs over...

Socia Justice Film Night

Social Justice Film Night Presents:
"THE SHOCK DOCTRINE"
7:00pm Thursday, April 172994 Douglas (BCGEU Hall) Victoria
Admission by Donation
From acclaimed filmmakers Michael Winterbottom (The Trip, The Killer Inside Me) and Mat Whitecross (The Road to Guantanamo), and based on Naomi Klein's provocative bestselling book of the same name, The Shock Doctrine is a gripping and incisive deconstruction of how radical free market policies have come to dominate the world.
Using shock therapy as a metaphor, the film investigates Klein's central idea of disaster capitalism. When countries are jolted by catastrophic events such as war or natural disasters, they are often subjected to totally un-regulated free market remedies that benefit corporations at public expense. The film traces the doctrine's beginnings from the theories of Milton Friedman and the Chicago School economists, through its implementation over the past 40 years...

[Uvic-sustainability] News and Events for week of April 14th

NEWS

 

UVic students are active in community-based mapping: Amy Becker (Anthropology), who is this year’s recipient of the Jamie Cassels Undergrad Research Award, has created a digital atlas of traditional First Nations place names on Vancouver Island using Google Earth technology. Chris Krasowski (Geography) is working on a project in conjunction with the City of Victoria to create a map of potential solar roofs in the city. The data will be incorporated into VicMap, the city’s online mapping resource. 

 

UVic faculty are among the dozens of scientists who signed on to a letter in the National Post to protest the fact that over two dozen scientists had applied for intervener status at the upcoming National Energy Board hearings on the expansion of the Kinder Morgan pipeline project, yet all were rejected. They believe it is because they were proposed to speak about climate change.
