The Camosun College Faculty Association endorses the December 4th “Federation of Post-Secondary Educators of British Columbia (FPSE) statement on the war in Gaza.”
The Federation of Post-Secondary Educators of British Columbia (FPSE) is deeply saddened by the events of the past few weeks, and we demand a ceasefire. The escalating conflict across the Middle East region in Israel, Palestine, and Gaza is having deep impacts within our community and the world. We unequivocally condemn the attacks against innocent civilians. Our students, faculty, and staff, many with ties to the region, may be experiencing fear, sorrow, anger, and feelings of unsafety. Our classrooms should be a place of compassion and peace where painful subjects can be discussed with respect and insight. We need to assure our colleagues and students that we are committed to ensuring a safe and inclusive community for all and that we denounce all acts of violence, hate, and discrimination.FPSE News | https://fpse.ca/news/fpse-news/fpse-statement-war-gaza, statement crafted by representatives from the Human Rights and International Solidarity Standing Committee.
Furthermore, a $5000 donation was made by FPSE to the United Nations Crisis Relief Fund, paid for by member dues from FPSE locals all across BC.
