Report from day 12 of COP22 

As the meeting of the UNFCCC COP 22 came to a close today in Marrakesh, Parties sat in negotiation spaces debating long-term funds for adaptation and text in final reports while the CYD alongside other civil societies took to the halls of COP for one last hurrah to let the Canadian government know we are watching and we are mobilized.

Ever Onward to Victory Fidel! Hasta Siempre Fidel!

Friends,The news that our beloved friend Fidel Castro at 90 years of age passed away at 10:29 on Friday, Nov. 26 leaves us amongst so many others around the globe with great sorrow and sadness.
Although his physical presence may not be amongst us any longer his teachings with his examples of building a better life on our planet for everyone everywhere will remain with humanity for a long time to come. His love for building a world without hunger, wars, injustice, sickness, ignorance or any kind of oppression and dedicating his whole life to it has really been incredible to witness. Such a great leader, a great revolutionary, a great teacher, a great man, humanity will always have to look up to.
In the coming days many tears will fall from everywhere for such a man who did so much with so little for the Cuban people and for so many others...

Dear Supporters,

The Women’s Boat to Gaza was a great success. Although the Amal II was unable to sail due to technical difficulties and the Zaytouna was hijacked by the Israeli Navy before reaching the shores of Gaza, the campaign had amazing media coverage which helped break the media silence that surrounds the Israeli blockade.  Details of the sailing and media articles can be seen here: http://canadaboatgaza.org/news/international-media-coverage/

Thank you so much for your donations and your help in spreading the word about the Women’s Boat to Gaza.  The success of the campaign depended on your help, and we are grateful that you came through so generously.

Dear Friends of SJS,

The Academic Women’s Caucus is sponsoring a panel for Thursday evening and really welcomes the public. Audience participation will be highly encouraged.

 

 

People are stunned, confused, and scared. Divisive, racist, sexist, and xenophobic rhetoric permeated the 2016 US Presidential Election and the first days after. As preparations for a Republican administration begin, we will discuss how election rhetoric affected marginalized groups and what the political climate, a Republican-controlled Congress, and Trump’s presidency could mean for the future of marginalized groups in the United States.

 

Join gender studies, political science, and history scholars on November 24 for this panel and discussion sponsored by the UVic Academic Women’s Caucus.

We Can Do This Together


Dear PAOV,

Over the last week we have heard from many of you that you are struggling to find hope in an increasingly fear based world. Given that climate change was not a prominent dialogue in the election and now is being questioned as a hoax, it is easy to lose hope when we have come so far.
