March 17th event canceled

Dear friends,

We sincerely regret to inform you that Enrique Gonzalez Ruiz, our guest speaker for tomorrow’s (March 17) event at the Liu Institute, did not receive his visa. Unfortunately, we have to cancel that event.

However, the round-table discussion will still proceed on Friday March 18th 5-7pm at the SFU Harbour Centre. This event is titled Democracy at Gunpoint: Violence and Politics in Contemporary Latin America and will feature William French (UBC), Maxwell Cameron (UBC), and Micol Seigel (IU, Bloomington). We also hope for dialogue and participation by attendees.


Please check out the video-trailer for the events which presents various voices from Mexico expressing their concerns over the current situation there:


If you have any questions, please let us know. And please distribute this information to your networks.


Thank you,
