7pm Wednesday, May 2

The Stand Community Organizing Centre (615 Main Street, Saskatoon)

Seamlessly combining travelogue, political analysis, and ecological theory, speaking both to local residents and to leading scholars, the authors propose a new understanding of ecology that links the domination of the other-than-human world to the domination of humans by humans. They argue that any definition of ecology has to start with decolonization and that confronting global warming requires a politics that speaks to a different way of being in the world—a reconstituted understanding of the sweetness of life.

6:30 pm Thursday, May 17

Third Avenue United Church (304 3rd Avenue North, Saskatoon)


The Sask Party's cuts are part of an austerity agenda far bigger than one issue. At this meeting, we will continue to build a common front between organizations and individuals who want to live in a province with strong public services, that builds just relationships between settlers and Indigenous people, and that doesn't leave anyone behind. 

We encourage anyone opposed to austerity and cuts to attend! Organizations and individuals welcome.

Snacks provided. Wheelchair Accessible. If you require child care, please send us a message.
