Bullhorn - #ReasonsToResist at UBC: Fossil Fuel and Mining Investments

This is Part Three of a series from The Talon on Reasons to Resist at The University of British Columbia. See Part One: Tuition and Housing here, and Part Two: Finance and Labour here.

The focus of this series is to reflect and extend the current state of activism on campus, by evidencing yet more potential issues related to financial and negotiating power at the University.

            Vancouver began Casseroles demonstrations in solidarity with the Quebec student movement and against the Charter-violating, emergency anti-protest law Bill 78. This June, some participants at these Vancouver events had bones broken, rotator cuffs torn, and heads smashed into doors when they were assaulted and arrested by the VPD for such things as asking for police badge numbers or almost getting struck by a motorist trying to speed through a crosswalk.
