On January 21 2009, the Ontario Progressive Conservative Campus Association (OPCCA) held a series of workshops advising young conservatives on how to dominate campus discourse, take over student government, and attack their campus public interest research group (PIRG). In the following weeks, similar workshops were held at Carleton and Wilfred Laurier University.
Recordings from the Toronto session were released on WikiLeaks in March of that year. The speakers from the recording are Ryan O’Connor and Aaron Lee-Wudrick, both of whom were active in student politics, and their Conservative Party campus chapter, at the University of Waterloo.
calling all volunteers! Tadamon Open Meeting!
All those interested in getting involved in the movement for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) against Israeli apartheid and for Palestinian human rights are welcome to attend an open meeting of Tadamon!
2009 has been a year of intense and sustained effort as well as many achievements for the Tadamon! Montreal Collective. We are now advancing through the autumn months with a full agenda of events and initiatives and looking forward to further achievements. We are also turning to supporters, friends and well-wishers of Tadamon! to ask for financial solidarity.
Tadamon’s activism takes as its focus the struggle for social justice, liberation and equality for the people of Palestine, Lebanon and the larger Middle East. Doing this work is a collective effort. It includes those who are active in our regular planning and organizing work, but also those who participate in Tadamon’s public events and who follow Tadamon’s work and provide support through financial contributions.
Hundreds gathered in Montreal for the ninth Artists Against Apartheid concert featuring DAM, the celebrated Palestinian hip-hop group, who took the stage in Montreal for the first time at Café Campus.
Join Tadamon! for a summer film series exploring the best films of the Middle East. The Algerian revolution, the Lebanese civil war and the Palestinian struggle are the themes for this summer.
