Opportunities to volunteer exist in these areas:

A) Scientific Research Projects. There are over 20 projects here. Examples:
Biodiversity in specific areas (e.g. Wadi AlQuf, Al-Makhrour, Wadi Fukin)
including Field work, research on diverse groups of living things (birds,
mammals, insects, snails, medical plants), and research on geology,
paleontology, and ethnology.

B) Ecosystem structures: Design of living outdoor and animal/plant exhibits
that interactive and not “zoo like” or “garden like”). The main goal is to
recreate a habitat that will allow a growth in number of species and an
equilibrium in the ecosystem created. Here people interested as well as
landscape designers, architects, and others who can contribute are needed.

C) Education/behavioral change: Developing the education system in schools,
to increase the curiosity for the children and the way they are thinking
about the nature around themselves. Developing and training children about
recycling/ up-cycling. And developing SMART science exhibition for students
in the museum.

Hi folks,
Our billboard from Pat Bay highway came down today. Our committees, Victoria Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid and Victoria Friends of Cuba sends a great big thanks to all the many folks who helped us with putting it up, taking it down, sending funding and hundreds of letters of support to make sure that it stayed up. We've never seen or received as much support as we have received for this project.
It was a well worth project to have been part of. Thousands of people were able to see it.
Now it will be down for one month and go up again in Nanaimo in October.
We shall continue our struggle until Israel will end its Apartheid and Occupation of Palestine.
Always in solidarity and friendship,
Victoria Coalition Against Apartheid &Victoria Friends of Cuba

Mentally Ill? Welcome to Prison


Brave New Films

More than half of all suspects shot and killed by police were suffering from mental illness - this is crazy.

And over 300,000 Americans in prison today have a mental illness diagnosis.

That’s why today we are releasing part one of our new series, This is Crazy: Criminalizing Mental Illness. This three part series calls on the critical and immediate need for the treatment of mental health through a public health system, not the barbaric criminalization of it.

Zero tolerance for hypocrisy and complicity with Israeli war crimes!



New Democratic Party purges candidates over pro-Palestine positions in lead up to Canadian elections


Mondoweiss.net
Marion Kawas on August 24, 2015

"All three major federal parties in Canada need to be sent a loud and clear message that Palestinians and their supporters will not be censored and Palestinian rights will not be trampled on so easily. We must all show that there is zero tolerance for hypocrisy and complicity with Israeli war crimes!"

Canadian governments have a long history of complicity in Palestinian dispossession. As early as 1947, Lester B. Pearson, then Under Secretary of State for External Affairs and future Canadian Prime Minister, played a key role in drafting and passing the United Nations Partition Plan, so much so that Zionist groups dubbed him the “Balfour of Canada”.

Successive governments have carried on this tradition of one-sided support, although often under the pretense of “peacekeeping” and being a “honest broker”. Fast forward to...
