The TRU Faculty Assocation (TRUFA) Executive supports the following statement by the Federation of Post-Secondary Educators (FPSE) Human Rights and International Solidarity Committee:
“The recent violent attacks on university campuses and schools, and the arrest and detention of university students are an abhorrent violation of human rights and the sacred right of students to protest. We believe that the Iranian university administration, the government, and the ministry responsible for higher education have the duty to protect the life and safety of students on university campuses and to defend their right to protest.
We strongly condemn the brutal treatment of protestors and demand the immediate and unconditional release of students arrested and detained. We demand that perpetrators of these violent attacks be brought to justice”
To further support solidarity, the TRUFA Human Rights Committee is hosting the following panel discussion:
Monday, December 5, 2022
5:00 – 7:00 PM
Room CT T200 (TRU Clock Tower Theatre)
Everyone is welcome to attend this free event.
