On December 6, 1989, Marc Lépine entered L’École Polytechnique of Montreal with the intention to “fight feminism” by killing women engineers. Each year, this day is remembered as the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. SACOMSS is hosting a memorial service to remember the lives that were lost and to remember that we deal with violence and oppression every day and it is our responsibility to stand up and take action.

 

The event will be December 6, 2012 from 6:30-8:00 @ Birks Chapel (3520 University, Montreal), followed by a reception with coffee, tea and snacks. The Birks Building is wheelchair accessible.

 

There will be speakers and performances, as well as candle lighting and a moment of silence to remember those whose lives have been lost. Volunteers trained in active listening will be present throughout.

 

Speakers and Performances include:

-a performance by Lady Sin

-a piano piece by Stefan Christoff

-a song by Tonal Ecstasy

 

We hope that you can come.
