BURNABY MOUNTAIN RESISTANCE

Film Screening

This event is for those wishing to watch the newest edit of the documentary “Burnaby Mountain Resistance: How It Went Down” Part 1 & Part 2, directed by Jakub Markiewicz. There will also be a public debrief/reflection on figuring out what went right, what went wrong, and which mistakes we need to learn from. The resistance didn’t start with the injunction, nor did it end with it.

TRUTH & RECONCILIATION IN IMPERIALIST CANADA

Discussion Group

Join us for a discussion on the history and repercussions of the TRC. The aim of this event is to offer a critical analysis of the program by outlining its shortcomings and benefits. We do not wish to uphold a singular perspective but to simply open up dialogue on the issue.
