Back to School Re-education

Sometimes it seems like activism takes a summer vacation from this city. That's not the case, of course - Radio Tadamon's excellent podcasts cover some of the local organizing around the attack on Lebanon, for example - but it certainly does get quiet around here between June and August. And while I cringe at the thought of the winter to come, I welcome the energy that the cooler season brings.

So whether you're an eager new student, or a seasoned lefty who needs a bit of a kick in the pants, get busy this week:

Concordia's Alternative Orientation (Sept. 18-26): Community garden tours, workshops, films, info tables and a "Karaoke Birthday Ball" on the 26th
RadGrad 2006 (Sept. 19-28): "A politicized introduction to grad student life at McGill" - workshops and panels on the intersections of academia and community organizing
PROTEST extraordinary and ordinary "rendition" to torture (Sept. 21, 8 a.m., CSIS, 715 Peel): "Against Canadian complicity in all kidnap and torture, whether illegal or 'legal'"
DIE-IN (Sept. 22, 5:30 p.m., Phillips Square): For Car-Free Day, a ketchup-soaked theatrical spectacle "to commemorate the death and the wounds caused by all kinds of motorized vehicles" - inspired by a similar demo in 1976 by Le Monde à Bicyclette

It's also a time that students should re-introduce themselves to their love of Monarchy.
