We are pleased to note that our Professor Homa Hoodfar of Montreal has been released from Iranian detention after work done by the Canadian government and human rights groups like Amnesty International.
Despite this amazing victory, there are already more urgent appeals.
Our latest URGENT ACTION APPEAL is directed at helping a 21 year old Tibetan monk who has been jailed indefinitely and without trial by Chinese authorities for shouting "Freedom for Tibet". Come on out and be ready to write letters to demand this young man's release!
Again, that is Amnesty International, Thursday at lunch, in room 121. All are welcome.

A message from the PLC:  This is a reminder to students who have been assigned laptops to use for their school work. Most computer equipment has now arrived, so come see us to find out if yours is here. The new PLC is near the Guidance Office if you haven’t been to see us yet!
