    Statement of Solidarity with Shelby McPhee and the Black Canadian Studies Association

    The Solidarity & Social Justice Committee of the Teaching Support Staff Union (TSSU) stands in solidarity with Shelby McPhee and the Black Canadian Studies Association (BCSA), and would like to extend our firm support for the BCSA’s demands in response to the anti-Black racial profiling of Mr. McPhee at June’s Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences. The failure of the Federation to respond quickly and appropriately to Mr. McPhee’s blatant harassment demonstrates the deep institutionalization of anti-Black racism in Canadian society. The spread of anti-Black racism and the struggle against it can be seen on campuses across Canada, and the incident involving Mr. McPhee at UBC is no exception. We believe strongly in the necessity for open and critical

    Statement of Solidarity with Loujain al-Hathloul

    The Solidarity & Social Justice Committee (SSJC) of the Teaching Support Staff Union (TSSU) expresses our firm solidarity with the incarcerated human rights activist Loujain al-Hathloul. Loujain was imprisoned by the Saudi Arabian government on May 15, 2018 as part of a sweep of arrests of feminist activists, including Aziza al-Yousef and Eman al-Nafjan. Loujain was especially outspoken in her resistance to the Saudi kingdom’s discriminatory ban on women drivers, and was a prominent campaigner for women’s right to drive. Shortly after her capture the driving ban was lifted, however, she is yet to be freed. It is now over a year since she has been held under brutal conditions. We want to affirm that Loujain is a peaceful human
