Nov 20, 2019 - What's next for the Kurds, Syria and Turkey

When: Wednesday November 20th, 7pm
Where: Steelworkers' Hall, 25 Cecil St.

The US troop pull out from the Kurdish area of northern Syria in October prompted an immediate invasion by Turkey claiming self-protection and scapegoating Syrian refugees. But this attack on the Kurdish people is part of a long history of Kurdish repression. The Kurds are stateless but live in Syria, Turkey, Iran and Iraq. Their fight for self-determination has also produced a history of treachery by imperial powers offering protection for Kurdish support only to betraying them. Join us for this discussion.

* G├╝lay Kilicaslan, PhD student at York University, and a member of both the Kurdish Community Center and Rojava Solidarity Collective in Toronto.
* Canan Sahin, PhD student at Queens University, a member of the International Socialists, in Canada and her sister organization DSIP, Revolutionary Socialist Worker Party, in Turkey.

Hosted by the Toronto East and West branches of the International Socialists.
Nov 20, 2019 - All Out! No IDF on Campus

When: Wednesday, November 20th, 6:30pm
Where: Students Against Israeli Apartheid at York University - SAIA York, Vari Hall, Room C

On Nov 20th, Herut Canada with the permission of York University will be hosting an event from 7-9 pm in Vari Hall Room C.

The event will have IDF soldiers/reservists coming to speak to students on campus. This is a shameful moment for the York University administration, to be allowing the soldiers of a foreign military on our campus. The Israeli army is responsible for dozens of human rights violations, the killing of Palestinians on a daily basis, and the continued ethnic cleansing of Palestinians.

Nov 19, 2019 - International Law and World Order

When: Tuesday November 19th, 7pm
Where: 15 King's College Circle, UC 144

Recently the bulletin of the atomic scientists set the doomsday clock to the closest point to midnight it has ever been. This was justified by the triple threats of nuclear war, climate change, and the decline of democracy. In this talk I would like to suggest a fourth justification for this reset: The precipitious decline in the effectiveness and respect for international law over the last two decades culminating with the election of Donald Trump.
Nov 19, 2019 - Making the right choice for Pickering's waterfront
