Citizens in Action, a non-profit, non-partisan, progressive group

of concerned citizens, dedicated to political, social & economi

justice is proud to present:

A Free Public Conference on

Is the Sky-Train project (REM) a Good Idea?

Everything you wanted to know about this project?

By Environmental Scientist

& Deputy Leader of the Green Party of Canada Daniel Green

The Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (CDPQ), our pension fund,

announced its plans to build a $5.5 billion driverless commuter train system

that will reach the outskirts of Montreal’s suburban communities to provide

a rail transit link to Montreal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport

 

Is the Metropolitan Electric Network or REM worthwhile? Critics say the

proposed light rail system misses the mark. At this conference, public

speaker, Daniel Green, will demonstrate what is wrong with this project

and whether we should go ahead with it as it stands.

 

Join us for an exciting evening of information & discussion.

Date:

Tuesday, March 7, 2017.

Place:

Concordia University, School of Community & Public Affairs,

2149 Mckay St

(between Sherbrooke & De Maisonneuve Blvd.)

metro Guy-Concordia

Time: 7.00 p.m. sharp

 

N. B. We usually meet second Tuesday of each month, to tackle a different

political issue, at Concordia University, same time, same place.

 

For further information, please call the founder & coordinator of the group,

Nadia Alexan, at tel. (514) 846-0644,

university of the street cafe public conversation

Representative Democracy

March 9, 2017, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Our University of the Streets Café public conversations are much like an

you'd have with friends or family around a dinner table, except with more people,

more points of view, and slightly more structure. Conversations are hosted by

a volunteer moderator who is there to welcome everyone and keep things on track.

 

To get things started, there's a guest, or sometimes two, who get the ball rolling

by sharing their ideas, experiences and questions. After that, it's all up to

the participants.

 

Different spaces allow for different forms of social involvement and lead

towards varying forms of collective decision-making: parent committees,

exchange forums, neighborhood assemblies, municipal councils and

public consultations. We can also connect to the increasing impact of

social movements that invoke the need for increased transparency and

access to data. In line with this, elected officials are also considering ways

to allow citizen access to public services data.

 

Our structures and movements are a direct expression of our

fundamental commitments to democracy and our populations ultimately

hold the power to choose representatives that reflect their interest in

informed social decisions. However, when information becomes more complex,

a deeper capacity for analysis is required and public officials are not necessarily

able to teach us how to make sense of data. As such, we can question the

capacity of citizens to engage in an informed manner with the available

information.

 

Do citizens hold the necessary competencies, tools and knowledge to take

part in democratic process and lead our communities?

 

Guests:

Frédéric Lapointe founded, in 2011, the Ligue d'action civique, of which he

is currently the president as well as member of the board of directors

of Transparency International Canada. Frédéric works on promoting shifts

in the structures of our political institutions and fights against municipal corruption.

He has been engaged politically for the past twenty five years, as a student

leader and as a member of groups such as Force Jeunesse and within the

quebec sovereignist movement. Frédéric is a consultant in evaluation at

Université de Montréal.

 

Jean-Noé Landry is the Executive Director of Open North and has

extensive experience in democracy building at an international level - having

worked in twelve countries over the past fourteen years on the development

of capacities in political processes alongside local civil society organizations

In 2009, he co-founded Quebec Ouvert and Montreal Ouvert, two citizen-led

initiatives that have successfully engaged the municipal government in taking

on a policy on open data.

 

Moderator:

Noémie Brière-Marquez is the coordinator of the Forum jeunesse de l'île de

Montréal. She works on promoting environments that further citizen participation

and particularly that of youth, leading them to take on an increased role in

Montreal's institutional decision-making, especially as it relates to

citizenship education amongst high-school youth. Her expertise and studies

have led her to develop an expertise in political and civic participation.

 

Accessibility info: Temps Libre is on the ground floor. The space can be

accessed through an accutely slopped garage entrance south and adjacent

to the entrance on de Gaspé Street. An elevator can then be used to access

he level on which the conversation takes place. In proximity to the space,

there are wheelchair accessible washrooms equipped with grab bars.

international Colloquium :

Climate Realism

 

Greetings,

Climate Realism, Media@McGill's international colloquium, asks leading scholars

in the humanities and social sciences to spell out a new research agenda

for climate theory and aesthetics in the age of the Anthropocene.

 

How is realism-in both the aesthetic history of representation and the

philosophical tradition that underwrites it-transformed by contending

with our new experience of climate in the Anthropocene?

In order to temper climate change - to apprehend its complexity, to address

its short- and long-term consequences, to mitigate its many sources

Climate Realism boldly claims we must develop new aesthetic theories

and projects.

Date:

Friday, March 10th, 2017 9 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal

185 rue Ste-Catherine Ouest

Free and open to the public.

No registration required.

French and English language interpretation services will be provided.

Live webcast. More information: for program and speakers

discussion on incarceration with

A. Woodfox et R. King des Angola

Friday, March 17

Alumni Auditorium, salle H-110,

au 1455 de Maisonneuve Ouest

In the context of the Week Against Police Brutality

https://cobp.resist.ca

 

a discussion on incarceration and political repression

with Albert Woodfox et Robert H. King

will take place Friday March 17th at 6:00 pm

at the Alumni Auditorium room H-110 of the Henry F. Hall Building

(1455 de Maisonneuve West) of the Concordia University.

 

Albert Woodfox is a Black Panther activist and ex-political prisoner who was

released in February 2016 at the age of 69 after having been detained and torture

for 45 years in the Angola Penitentiary (Louisiana), of which 43 years were spent

in solitary confinement. No American prisoner has ever been put in

solitary confinement for so long. This cruel and unusual punishment was

inflicted to him for a crime he did not commit, because of his political beliefs

and the colour of his skin.

 

With Herman Wallace and Robert King, Albert Woodfox was part of a group known

as the Angola 3 (http://angola3.org/),

three African-American men sent to prison in 1971 in one of the most

violent detention facilities in the United States. Members of the Black Panthers,

they fought to defend prisoners' rights while inside.

 

Robert King stayed in Angola for 32 years, of which 29 years were spent in

solitary. From the time he came out in 2001, he crusaded to free his two

friends. Wallace was released in 2013, but died shortly after.

Since Woodfox recovered his freedom in February 2016, he has been

travelling Europe and the US with King to advocate for the abolition of

solitary confinement and the liberation of political prisoner in the US.
