Free speech event at SFU in jeopardy after threats of violence
Thanks to some fantastic organizing on the ground, the #GIDYVR event scheduled for Nov 2 at SFU has been cancelled! Congrats to everyone who worked hard to defend the lives of queer folk.
What happened yesterday in a meeting
between the SFU LGBT student group called Out On Campus and an outside group
called Coalition Against Trans Antagonism (CATA). CATA was attempting to
persuade Out On Campus to use direct action, discussing tactics such as pulling
fire alarms and engaging in property damage.
