[evoz] REMINDER/INVITATION: Celebrate "orange" May Day 2017 in Victoria, BC

Monday, May 1 at 4pm, corner of Richmond and Fort.

 

Celebrating International Workers Day in Victoria by showing our support for the 4.000 hospital support service workers who are being hyper exploited by multinationals corporations owning the contracts for cleaning and dietary services in our hospitals.

VIHA plays an important and pivotal role in this exploitation, taking full advantage of it and hiding behind the multinationals.

 

Please wear “orange” so symbolize workers getting “squeezed” like oranges by foreign companies.

Dear Friends of SJS,
Course offered by Mosqoy and the UN-mandated University for Peace
We are excited to announce that Mosqoy's Field School is partnering with The Human Rights Centre at the United Nations-mandated University for Peace to launch a new hybrid e-learning + field certificate course on Cultural Rights and Development: The Realities of Globalization in the Andes, which will be offered from September 25 to November 3, 2017.

This exciting new hybrid e-learning and field course will critically examine gender, development, and cultural rights, in the face of globalization and change. The course will look at the discrepancies between these rights in theory and practice, focusing on how they translate into the realities of the Quechua people. Profits from this field course will directly support Mosqoy's charitable programs.
 
The first 4 weeks of the course will be conducted online through the UPEACE Human Rights Centre, and will include an in-depth study...

Who will defend public health care against Brian Day?

NationBuilder r1 Dear Paov --

On Thursday, a Liberal candidate in Port Moody Coquitlam said she supported private health care for "those who are able to afford it." [1]

This sounds dangerously like opening the door to American style two-tiered care - and comes just after Health Minister Terry Lake let it slip that his government is trying to change the rules to sanction a private hospital sector in B.C. [2]

This is especially scary because whoever gets elected on May 9th will be the government defending public health care against Brian Day's legal attack in court this fall.

We need to act fast to show our political parties that voters don't want more privatized health care for B.C. Can you pledge to vote for public health care...

Apply for the CYD to COP23 in Bonn, Germany


The Canadian Youth Climate Coalition PAOV --

APPLY_COP23.jpg

In December 2015, world leaders met in Paris to craft and sign the landmark Paris Agreement. Since then, we have seen even more science supporting an urgent need to curb global temperature rise and radically reduce carbon emissions worldwide. We have also seen a potentially promising Pan-Canadian Framework on climate change, and deeply concerning new leadership south of the border. For All these reasons and more, the Canadian Youth Delegation (CYD) is excited to be returning to COP to hold our government accountable to the climate action we all need and deserve.

Help us create the next issue of Adbusters!


Hey all you writers, artists and designers out there,

I am looking for alternatives. Every time I try to jump back into this world, I am disappointed.

How can I go on knowing that every time I engage with the capitalist-corporate machine I am contributing to environmental destruction, war, poverty and suffering? How can I sit back when the only way I can engage with people on the other side of the planet is by exploiting them?
