Summary of Second & Third Injunctions

Date: 
Monday, 24 October, 2011 - 14:41

On Friday (Oct 21), McGill obtained another emergency injunction against us, and the MUHC obtained one as well. That’s right. Once again, an institution of higher learning that is supposed to foster critical thought and debate is using strong-arm legal tactics to limit its own employees’ freedom of expression and assembly!

 

But we will not let them silence us. We are united and strong! The McGill Community is on our side, most recently the Law Students Association which passed a resolution in support of us last week. The greater Montreal, Quebec and Canadian communities are also on our side, as shown by the construction workers who supported us on the lines on Thursday, and as shown by the speakers at Friday’s rally – from the NDP, to local and national community groups, to a labour organization.

Here are the details of the most recent emergency injunction orders:

 

INJUNCTION ON OFF-CAMPUS EVENTS, BOARD OF GOVERNORS, AND SENIOR ADMINISTRATION (DI GRAPPA, MUNROE-BLUM, MASI)

For the Workplace of each Board of Governor Member
• We cannot block or impede access to the workplace
• We cannot make amplified noise (nor blow whistles or bang drums!) within 25 m of the workplace
• We cannot assemble or picket within 10 m of the workplace
• Beyond the 10 m mark, we cannot assemble in groups of more than 20

For Off-Campus McGill Events
• We cannot block or impede access
• We cannot make amplified noise (nor blow whistles or bang drums!) within 25 m of the event location
• We cannot assemble or picket within 10 m of the event location

For Private Homes (includes Heather Munroe-Blum, Anthony Masi and Michael Di Grappa)
• We cannot block or impede access
• We cannot assemble or picket on the property
• We cannot make amplified noise (nor blow whistles or bang drums!) within 25 m of the property
• We cannot picket or assemble within 25 m of the property
• Beyond the 25 m mark, we cannot assemble in groups of more than 3

We cannot invite or entice anyone else to break these rules

This order is in force until October 31, 2011 at 5PM. There will be a second hearing that morning.

We will continue to peacefully assert our message of parity with other universities.
We will keep putting pressure on McGill to address our issues and to come to a fair settlement.

The University will never silence us!

 UNITED WE WILL PREVAIL!
