On Monday and Tuesday of this week, The Genocide Awareness Project is setting up displays in the EMU ampitheater around lunchtime to announce their claims that Abortion is equivalent to Genocide. There will probably be graphic, terrible images of aborted fetuses, etc. THIS IS YOUR TRIGGER WARNING. Please feel free to come to the Counseling Center if you feel triggered by these displays. Students for Choice and Students for life will be set up to respond to this display as opposing the Genocide comparison and to be a supportive presence for women.
I hope you all can avoid these displays and have a wonderful start to your week.
Students for Choice supports you! Here’s a cool slam poetry reading.
Indigenous Solidarity Day is next Monday, October 8th. Tabling and happenings during the day in the EMU Amphitheater, and there will also be a free dinner in the Longhouse from 6-8pm. Come show your support.
