The following motion was endorsed unanimously.

Whereas through ongoing monitoring and research on the issues affecting Palestinian education under occupation, as well as building an active campaign network in Palestine and worldwide, the Right to Education Campaign seeks to raise international awareness about the obstruction and denial of education in Palestine and to bring pressure to bear on governments, decision-makers and ultimately the Israeli authorities to guarantee safe and free access of all Palestinians to their educational institutions,

Be it resolved that the UTMSU Board of Directors endorse the Right to Education Campaign.

Participation during Expression against Oppression:

The UTM Student Union has set aside resources for the implementation of the right to education campaign during Expression against Oppression in January 2009. The CAF youth wing has unanimously endorsed the campaign and will provide logistical support for the campaign.

Our allies will also be meeting with other student unions across the GTA to generate support for the campaign.
