    In the Spotlight

    TSSU Statement Condemning Anti-Black Racism: Alumni Arrest and Institutional Response

    December 14, 2020
    December 14, 2020 This letter is prepared on behalf of the Solidarity and Social Justice Committee and Executive Committee of the Teaching Support Staff Union in strong condemnation of anti-Black racism that occurred on SFU’s Burnaby campus on December 11. We are writing to express our disappointment and anger at the violent arrest of a Black SFU Alumnus and the University’s response to this incident. Actions taken against this individual require concrete and meaningful actions that will lead to institutional change and, ultimately, safety for all current and future BIPOC students.  It cannot be stressed enough how deplorable it is that the police were called regarding the presence of a Black person that was causing no harm to anyone around

    The Solidarity and Social Justice Committee of the Teaching Support Staff Union is in support of the letter put forward by Students Against TMX, which calls for ceasing construction of the TransMountain Pipeline and investment in Indigenous-led green infrastructure projects. Our members, whose workplaces are located in direct proximity to the Burnaby Mountain tank farm and terminal, which is unceded Coast Salish territory. We must uphold and commit to empowering Indigenous sovereignty, as well as our community safety and therefore call on the government to uphold their promises of reconciliation and address the ongoing climate crisis by stopping the pipeline expansion immediately. We stand with the signatories of the Students Against TMX letter, which include thirteen student groups representing 180,000
