    Statement of Solidarity with the SFU Trans Community in Light of Recent Vandalism

    September 25, 2019
    Over the past few months, the Simon Fraser Student Society’s Out On Campus (OOC) has run a campaign titled We Just Need to Pee. This campaign, which includes posters in every washroom on each SFU campus, serves as an important reminder that everyone – including trans people – deserves to use the washroom relevant to their their gender identity without ridicule, questioning, or harassment. It was launched in response to an incident that took place at SFU where a student, who was attending a memorial service for murdered transgender people, was told that they were “in the wrong washroom.” It is vital that every person on campus deserves to feel safe, valid, and welcomed. OOC’s campaign is a friendly reminder

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

    July 16, 2019
    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

    July 5, 2019
    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
