Comrades On Campus

A group of students at the University of British Columbia has come together to establish a campus chapter of the Canada-Afghanistan Solidarity Committee.

Motto: "For a responsible Canadian foreign policy and solidarity with the oppressed."

Basis of Unity: "The rebuilding of Afghanistan is a noble and justified cause, consistent with our broad Canadian values of democracy and human rights. We recognize the military aspect is a vital, but not sufficient, component of this mission."

Neat-o.

After the nonsense that happened at UVic last year, we could really use a chapter, too.

Allan: If you'd like, I could put you in touch with the UBC crew, and I believe we have may have a UVic student or two among CASC's membership. You can reach me at terry dot glavin at gmail.com .
