Dear members of the GPE community,
The students of the GPE Department have voted for unlimited strikes that include picketing classes during their last general assemblies. Despite statements sent out by the Provost and the Department, students and faculty should expect picketing as has been occurring during recent weeks.
Students not in support these tactics are welcome to discuss this in an open, democratic way in weekly General Assemblies. However, the student associations of the GPE currently have strike mandates effective until the next General Assembly. As the accreditation of a student association makes it the sole representative for students, this mandate should be respected.
The next General Assembly for the graduate student association (GEOGRADS) is scheduled for Tuesday March 27th, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. at the GSA house located at 2030 Mackay.
The next General Assembly for the undergraduate student association (GUSS) is scheduled for Tuesday, March 27th, 2012 at 4:00p.m.on the7th floor of the Hall building.
Various statements were issued in response to the Provosts’ intention of prosecuting students under the Code of Rights and Responsibilities.
