Rally Against Genocide in Rohingya @ Kitchener City Hall
Dec 10 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

From: RAC <raccontactinfo@gmail.com>
Date: Wed, Dec 7, 2016 at 7:48 AM
Subject: cordially invited to join a rally against GENOCIDE of Rohingya

Dear Friends and Supporters,

As you may be well aware the crisis for Rohingya in Rakhine/Arakan State of Burma is at its peak. Under the pretext of “Clearance Operations to drive out the militancy,” the crimes being committed against the Rohingya by the State is literally indescribable. As a result, thousands of houses are burned down; property, livestock, valuables are looted; hundreds of people are killed and hundreds women are systematically being raped and killed. While some managed to escape to Bangladesh, majority of whom are still alive, are living in absolute horror—not knowing when they will be snatched, raped and then slaughter before being disposed into mass-graves. Every family in KW area has lost their loved ones and affected very badly.

UNHCR recently, albeit belatedly, termed it as “ethnic cleansing.” Many researchers, academics, professional writers and seven Nobel Laureates around the world have called it as “Genocide.” However, no preventative measure has taken by any powerful country yet.

Although our Foreign Minister Mr. Dion recently expressed his deep concern for violence against Rohingya and urges full humanitarian access via his twitter account, any concrete steps to save lives is yet to be seen, from our government as well as from any other powerful government.

It is imperative that a swift action is needed in order to save some/most of remaining Rohingya. We feel that more public awareness is necessary to pressure the government to take concrete actions.

Therefore, Rohinyga Association of Canada is holding a peaceful demonstration at the following:

Place: Kitchener City Hall

Date/Time: Saturday, December 10, 2016, from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm.

On behalf of Rohingya Association of Canada, I would like to request you to join us to show your support to our shaken-community members each of whom are impacted badly.

Your presence at our rally means a world of difference and a true solace for our affected community.

Although this is a short notice, we hope you’d join us.

We anticipate your presence at our rally.

Kind Regards,

Anwar Arkani <asarkani@gmail.com>

On behalf of Rohingya Community in KW area

Reframing Crime, Justice & Prevention, A community course by @PreventingCrime @ Community Justice Initiatives
Oct 26 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Friends of Crime Prevention

Colleagues & friends – greetings everyone! I trust this message finds you well. You are receiving this message as someone in my network who might be interested in this community course and/or willing to share it with others who might be interested.

Friends of Crime Prevention, with the support of the Waterloo Region Crime Prevention Council, will offer its very first Community Course. This course was developed by a creative and rambunctious group of Friends of Crime Prevention so you know it’s going to be good! Several Friends will be part of the course facilitation.

Not sure what Friends of Crime Prevention is? Only one of the best networks in Waterloo Region… If you haven’t signed up as a Friend, make it right… Sign up and Become A Friend!

Please share this information with your networks. Many thanks, in advance.

Crime prevention is more than just locking your doors at night and sending people to jail. To address the roots of crime, we’ll have to go deeper, reframe and make some shifts.

In order to create truly safer, healthier communities we need to mobilize a wide range of people — from neighbours and community groups to municipal leaders and large institutions.

That includes you. And we’re pleased to offer our very first community course Reframing Crime Justice Prevention: A Community Course that will help our community make the shift.

About the Course: Reframing Crime, Justice & Prevention

This course is for Friends of Crime Prevention and any community member who is open to looking beyond the accepted status quo, thinking critically about these issues and willing to examine issues from every possible perspective – maybe even some perspectives with which you would disagree.

Every Thursday:
26 October — 7 December 2017
6:30pm – 9:00 pm

Location: Community Justice Initiatives & Kitchener Public Library
Queen Street North, Downtown Kitchener

Learn More About The Course & How To Register

In an active learning environment, we’ll examine questions like:

  • What if we could change things about our society that would prevent crime before it happens?
  • What cultural, political or social structures impede us from creating a safer community?
  • How might addressing the roots of crime resolve social issues?
  • Can we shift our understanding of the relationship between crime, justice and prevention?

Course Methods and Activities

As a group, you will co-create learning through an interdisciplinary examination of issues using experiential activities. Learning activities may include: group conversations, circle discussions, case studies, problem-solving exercises, guest facilitators, interactive activities, and possibly a field trip. At the end of the course, the group will collaborate on a project that articulates your learning journey. The project will be presented to the community at a “porch chat” type event in Winter 2018.

Who Can Participate?

This course is for Friends of Crime Prevention and community members who are open to thinking critically about crime, prevention, and justice from many different perspectives.

For the first voyage of this course, we are accepting up to 10 participants and we ask that you are able to commit to full 7 weeks + Winter 2018 event.

Rohingya Genocide Remembrance Day @ Carl Zehr Square at Kitchener City Hall
Aug 25 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Rohingya Genocide Remembrance Day

It is with great expectation that Rohingya Association of Canada writes to invite you to Kitchener City Hall for a second year Rohingya Genocide Remembrance Day, which is on Sunday, August 25th from 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm.

This event is to commemorate the mass killings, rapes and exodus of the Rohingya people, as well as the destruction of the Rohingya Nation and current state of survivors.

Given that most Rohingyas in Canada live in Kitchener and each has lost their loved ones in the tragedy and survivors are continuously suffering in the refugee camps in Bangladesh, we believe your gracious presence may console some of their grievances.

We look forward to hearing from you, and your presence there. Please share this among your network.

Kind Regards,
