On December 6, 1989 – the last day of classes before midterm exams at Montreal’s Ecole Polytechnique. Around 4 p.m., a man entered a classroom with an assault rifle.“He ordered the men – the students and the professors – to go on the right side of the class, and the girls on the left side,” Minutes later Fourteen young women were shot and killed. Every year on December 6th we remember these women and try an impossible task to reconcile the tragedy that occurred that day. I read a very good article online that asks us to Remember more than just their names which I would like to share with you.
The Women Committee have ordered buttons and posters for this National Remembrance Day of Action to stop Violence Against Women. These buttons and posters which will be available at the Union Hall. We will also post information about the events scheduled in the Niagra area on December 6th 2018.
We remember you.
