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.
