Protests Against Poster Bans

On Thursday February 26th, join OPIRG-Carleton and show your support for
SAIA and SPHR. Come to a public discussion and TWO RALLIES (one after the
other) to call the Administrations at Carleton and the U of O to account by
asking them to clarify why and how these posters were banned. Show these
administrations that civil discourse is dependent upon rights to free
expression and organizing, especially around contentious issues.

Date: Thursday February 26th 2009

Time for Carleton: 11:30 - 1:00pm. The regular shuttle service leaves
Carleton at 1:30pm after the Carleton rally will and arrive at the U of O at
1:50pm. People will gather at the shuttle drop-off location (across from
Montpetit) to begin the rally at the U of O. The rally at the U of O will
begin in front of the shuttle bus-stop at 2:00pm.

Meeting location at Carleton: C264 Loeb Building
Meeting location at U of O: shuttle bus-stop (across from Monpetit)

*Event Description: The rally at Carleton will be mostly silent. People
are invited to symbolically cover their mouths. The rally at the University
of Ottawa will not be silent. If you have letters (from groups, unions,
organizations or individuals) you would like to deliver to the university
administrations about the banning of the Israeli Apartheid poster please
bring them with you. Both rallies will end at the presidents' offices.
