[Uvic-sustainability] News and Evnets for week of Sept 29th

NEWS

 

The Victoria Car Share Co-op has announced plans to merge with Vancouver’s Modo car sharing network. This will give Victoria car share members, including those with UVic memberships, access to fob technology, doing away with lock boxes for keys and manual trip entries, access to newer vehicles and easy access to the Metro Vancouver fleet when visiting there. Watch for more details on this coming in the next few months.

 

A team of researchers led by UVic’s Quentin Mackie (Anthropology) and Allison Proctor (Mech Engineering) are using an automated underwater vehicle to survey ancient riverbeds in Gwaii Haannas National Park Reserve. They believe they have uncovered evidence of the earliest human habitation of Canada – perhaps 14,000 years old. See Vancouver Sun and UVic News.

Hold Israel accountable for Gaza massacre



Dear BDS supporter, 
A month has now passed since the end of Israel’s massacre of the besieged population of Gaza. Gaza may no longer be on our TV screens, but the medieval siege remains in place and Israel appears more determined than ever to press on with the expansion of its illegal Israeli settlements.   As civil society organisations in Gaza have said, there is now a battle underway to ensure that Israel is held to account. The outcome of this battle will determine whether Israel’s latest assault will be yet another stage in Israel’s incremental genocide” of Palestinians or the turning point that will bring an end to Israel’s status as an entity above the law. The outcome of this battle depends on you. Palestinians everywhere were inspired by the international outpouring of support for Palestine during the Gaza massacre. Hundreds of thousands of people across the world joined the August 9 Day...
