Food not Bombs

When: Sat, 17 October, 13:00 – 15:00

Where: Kitchener City Hall, 200 King Street West, Kitchener, ON N2G 4G7, Canada

Share a meal. Start a conversation. All welcome at Food Not Bombs Kitchener’s Saturday servings! Where does this happen? The serving happens at 1:30 every Saturday in front of Kitchener City Hall (200 King St W.) Before that, we cook our soup at the Working Centre, which is located at 58 Queen St S. (just a few blocks away). Our leftover produce and soup is then driven to the House of Friendship in downtown Kitchener.

How can I help? We are always in need of volunteers to help us cook, people with access to cars who can drive produce and soup to and fro, friendly folks who want to dish out soup and, last but not least, people to help with the clean-up. You can read a complete description of the different jobs available here: http://wpirg.or​g/action-groups​/food-not-bombs​/how-to-help/. If any of them sound good to you, sign up for our mailing list here: http://lists.wp​irg.org/mailman​/listinfo/fnb_l​ists.wpirg.org.

We’re a friendly bunch- send out an e-mail introducing yourself and we’ll be happy to help you get started. Who donates food? We get the majority of our produce from Central Fresh Market- they give us the vegetables that aren’t pretty enough to sell or that they’ve overstocked. We also get donations of produce from Full Circle Foods and donations of loaves and buns from Grainharvest Breadhouse. Why does Food Not Bombs do what it does? Because food is a right, not a privilege. Because when we are hungry, we have the right to get what we need. Because poverty is a form of violence neither necessary nor natural. Because capitalism makes food a source of profit, not a source of nutrition. Because food does grow on trees. Because we need community, not control. Because we need homes, not jails. Because we need FOOD NOT BOMBS!

Cinema Politica Waterloo :YOU DON’T LIKE THE TRUTH – 4 Days Inside Guantanamo

When: Wed, 21 October, 19:00 – 21:00

Location: Princess Twin Cinemas, 46 King St N, Waterloo, ON N2J 2W8, Canada

Cinema Politica Waterloo, WPIRG, and LSPIRG invite you to join us for the second film of our Fall 2015 Cinema Politica documentary series: YOU DON’T LIKE THE TRUTH — 4 Days Inside Guantanamo

TICKET INFO: Tickets are available at the door only. Admission to Cinema Politica Waterloo screenings are by donation, with a sliding scale suggestion of $5-10, though everyone is welcome and no one will be turned youdontlikethetruthaway for lack of funds.

SYNOPSIS: YOU DON’T LIKE THE TRUTH – 4 days inside Guantánamo is a documentary based on security camera footage from the Guantánamo Bay prison. A poorly recorded video starts. The door of the interrogation room opens. Behind table a young prisoner in chains and dressed in orange sits waiting. Two men and a woman enter the cell: Man 1: How’s your English? Omar Khadr: Good. Man 1: It is good, eh? Omar Khadr: Yeah Man 1: Look the reason we’re down here, we’re wanted to talk to you for a couple of days Omar Khadr: OK Man 1: Talk to you about a bunch of things. Omar Khadr: No problem Man 1: You’re good with that? Omar Khadr: Yes. Man 1: So I guess we’re the first Canadians you’ve seen in a while? Omar Khad: Canadians? Man 1: Yeah Omar Khadr: Finally! (laughs) This encounter between a team of Canadian intelligence agents and Omar Khadr, a child detainee in Guantánamo, has never before been seen. Based on seven hours of video footage recently declassified by the Canadian courts this documentary delves into the unfolding high-stakes game of cat and mouse between captor and captive over a four day period. Maintaining the surveillance camera style this film analyzes the political, legal and scientific aspects of a forced dialogue.

Criminology Research Study

Dr. Owen Gallupe, Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology and Legal Studies at the University of Waterloo is leading a study examining the effect of the sight of rewards on task performance.

He is looking for undergraduate students to participate in a one time, 30 minute experiment. This study has implications for incentive programs to promote good behaviour in prison settings. All participants will be provided with a $20 gift card to local businesses for their participation in this research.

Participation will include a simple mental task followed by a short questionnaire.

You must be at least 18 years of age to participate in this study. The experiment will be conducted in the Psychology, Anthropology, and Sociology (PAS) building, room 2084 or 2085. Your identity will remain strictly confidential. All information you provide will be treated as anonymous.

If you would like to participate, have additional questions, or would like additional information to assist you in reaching a decision about participation, please contact Pat Lalonde by email at p2lalond@uwaterloo.ca. You can also contact Dr. Gallupe at ogallupe@uwaterloo.ca or 519-888-4567 ext. 33361.

If you choose to participate, Pat Lalonde (p2lalond@uwaterloo.ca) will work with you to find a suitable time.

If you participated in our previous study, you cannot participate in this one.

This study has been reviewed and received ethics clearance through a University of Waterloo Research Ethics Committee. However, the final decision about participation is yours.
Thank you for your consideration and we look forward to hearing from you.
