About the event
UBC is encouraging their student body to donate to the ICRC (International Committee of Red Cross), should they wish to aid Ukraine. Red Cross, an organization which has been seen supporting the Russian government, feeding into the Kremlin propaganda by calling the war in Ukraine a “Moscow operation” and aiding in the illegal deportation of Ukrainian citizens onto Russian soil. Furthermore, according to The Ubyssey, "UBC has investments in majority state-owned oil and gas giants Gazprom and Rosneft, as well as Lukoil and Sberbank," which have clear ties to the Russian government. UBC has failed to provide a timeline for their divestment.
We will "perform" in the rally by wearing UBC sweatshirts, with dollar bills taped over our mouths. There will be people laying down, covered in Ukrainian flags and red paint. Please bring your big Ukrainian flags and signs. Any help will be appreciated. Do not hesitate to reach out, should you have any questions, comments or suggestions.
