3 Talon-approved Events this Week

1. AMS Annual General Meeting

This year’s UBC Alma Mater Society Annual General Meeting is crucially important due to the recent tuition and residence increases. The meeting will feature votes on student action against these hikes as well as an opportunity to discuss the increases as well as other issues affecting UBC students. A quorum of 500 students is needed for binding resolution, which is actually quite a bit of people. Come out to oppose the hikes!

2. ‘On the Side of the Road’ UBC screening & discussion with director Lia Tarachansky

A screening of Lia Tarachansky’s documentary film On the Side of the Road, which explores the plight of Palestinian refugees and the Israeli perception of Palestinian occupation.

3. Big Talk: Unpacking Halloween – Culture, Not Costume

This talk, co-hosted by the UBC Sociology Students’ Association and the UBC Anthropology Students’ Association, will offer some much needed guidance about halloween costumes through a discussion of “cultural appropriation, racial relations, and the effects of colonialism in our everyday lives.” $2 entry also includes membership to one of the two student associations and a cool-looking official badge.
