Changing Laws & Unchanging Statistics:

Rape and Rape Laws in India with Reflections from Canada

Poonam Khaturia
Leading feminist activist from India, founder and director of SWATI

(Society for Women’s Action and Training Initiatives)

with

Wanda Nanibush

Anishnabe-Kwe Image and Word Warrior, Community Organizer,
Curator-in-Residence at JMB Gallery.

Angela Robertson

Social Justice Activist
Executive Director of Central Toronto Community Health Centres.

In the wake of massive protests in India following the gruesome gang rape of a young woman in December 2012

the government of India made significant changes to anti-rape laws.

In the context of these events and continuing violence and mobilization in India and Canada,

Poonam Kathuria will open a transnational dialogue on the challenges of

feminist organizing  against violence against women and

the real impact on women’s lives of the legal and policy changes achieved.

Kidnapping and murder of Israeli teens

Posted on July 4, 2014 | No Comments

Those responsible for the horrific kidnapping and murder of Eyal Yifrah, Gil-Ad Shaer and Naftali Fraenkel must be brought to justice for these unspeakable crimes.

I echo the words of Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau who has extended the sympathies of all Canadians to the families of those lost and the people of Israel and condemned these senseless murders.

Please also find a link below to the official statement made by my Parliamentary colleague Marc Garneau, Liberal Foreign Affairs critic, regarding this terrible tragedy.
