Sep 30, 2020 - All Out - Virtual Strike

When: September 30th, 11am - 7pm

All Out #S30Strike & #OrangeShirtDay! We have seen a wave of organizations, corporations, and institutions claim to support Indigenous and Black lives, and "pride" themselves on equity, diversity, and inclusion while simultaneously targeting, harassing, and oppressing Indigenous, Black, and Racialized bodies on their campuses. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. We have led and organized many campaigns, actions, and protests against racism over the years - but now we believe it is time to STRIKE. Join us for an Orange Shirt Day Commemoration and Virtual Strike.

Sep 29, 2020 - Algonquin 101 with Lynn Gehl

When: Tuesday September 29th, 7pm
Tickets: $20/person

While many people know they exist on Algonquin land, due to the inadequacies of the colonial education system these same people only know a little bit about the Algonquin Anishinaabeg of the Ottawa River Valley. This talk, delivered in a story-telling format, is intended to give the listener a foundation about the Algonquin land and waterscape, who the Algonquin were at contact, and who the Algonquin are today. Items discussed will be where the Algonquin were located at contact, the imposition of the 1763 Royal Proclamation, how the Algonquin have been divided through the overlay of the Canadian confederation on their territory and were never treatied with, the controversial Algonquin of Ontario land claims process, and the Quebec Algonquin First Nation assertion of title. This story will also discuss the lumber industry and Algonquin sacred places such as Akikpautik (Chaudière Falls).
