Various student clubs at the University of Victoria are organizing an event on November 2nd demanding free tuition for post-secondary students. The event will occur as part of a larger national day of action organized by multiple organizations across the country titled “All Out November 2nd”. It will feature speakers who will be calling out various problems in post-secondary education and it will provide a space for progressive students to network. We are calling on solidarity from all organizations that care about youth rights to come out and support us. This is an inclusive event that welcomes, adults and anyone from any organization that opposes the current status quo of education in BC.

Ongoing Call to Action:
Supervised Consumption Services Now!

BC Ministry of Health, 1515 Blanshard Street at Pandora 
Every Thursday at 12 Noon

There is a life and death struggle in Greater Victoria — and a grave question facing all levels of government: whether to support people managing addictions by providing Supervised Consumption Services without delay, to reduce harm from addictions — or whether to stand idly by as fatalities mount from overdoses and avoidable transmitted diseases.

We are calling on all citizens to take action by:

Signing/Sharing Petition demanding Supervised Consumption Services Now!…

Joining the Information Picket at the BC Ministry of Health,
1515 Blanshard Street at Pandora, each and every Thursday at 12 Noon.

With your help, we can establish these necessary health services in our community without delay!

Listen to SEA member Keith Cherry on CFAX discussing the issue:

Oh and last but not least!
NEXT SEA MEETING: Tuesday November 15
Time and Date TBD
