(QPIRG Concordia, via our Board of Directors, has endorsed the “yes” campaigns in four referendum questions, and we encourage Concordia undergraduate students who care about social justice to consider voting YES to all four. All four campaigns involve dedicated and conscientious Concordia student activists who are committed to improving our campus and community, locally and globally, by addressing issues such as Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestine, resisting budget cuts and austerity, as well as supporting student parents and student housing. All issues are of direct concern to QPIRG Concordia and our mandate.)
The Concordia Student Union (CSU) is holding a referendum on the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel’s occupation of Palestine movement, this November 25 to 27! And the « YES for BDS » committee is asking for your support! If this referendum question passes, it will be another step towards ending Israel’s occupation of Palestinians’ lives and lands.
Referendum Question: Do you approve of the CSU endorsing the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel’s occupation of Palestine until Israel complies with International Law and Universal Principles of Human Rights?
QPIRG Concordia encourages you to vote « YES »; and we encourage you to mobilize your Concordia student friends to do the same.
