Faced with the proliferation of hateful acts and speeches, dozens of groups of diverse backgrounds, including AMUSE, have decided to unite and call for a large demonstration against hatred and racism. The march will take place on Sunday, November 12th beginning at 2pm at Place Émilie-Gamelin (near Station Berri-UQAM). If you are interested in forming an AMUSE contingent, get in touch.

The facebook event for the demonstration can be found here.
Café Collab and Student Services invite students in financially precarious situations to a drop-in community art-making session to discuss how Student Services can better support their needs.
The event will take place on November 14th from 2:30-5pm at Brown Building (3600 McTavish) Room 5001.
This event is aimed at students who are working while studying, student parents, students from working class backgrounds, students receiving needs-based government or McGill aid, students with loans, first generation students and any other student with similar needs and experiences.
Free snacks and beverages will be served and all participants will receive a $10 gift certificate for their choice of either Jean Coutu or iTunes. Space is limited. Register here.
An event series on anti-racism, migrant justice and indigenous solidarity, Culture Shock seeks to bring together racialized communities to engage in dialogue about issues relevant to their lives, as well as to allow non-members who do not belong to these communities to learn more about decolonization, migrant justice and anti-racism in Canada and beyond. Every year, QPIRG and the SSMU bring panels, workshops, film screenings and fundraiser parties to McGill students and the broader Montreal communities as part of the Culture Shock programming.
All events are wheelchair accessible, free and open to the public.

We have one spot open on the Board of Representatives and we strongly encourage you to run for it! This is an interim position with a term that lasts until our next Annual General Meeting in early 2018. The BoR is a great way to get involved with AMUSE and support the union while having your voice truly heard. You can find out more about the BoR here. Our next meeting is Tuesday, November 14th! Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns about the BoR or becoming a Representative.
