Lecture/Seminar Extractive Industries and Indigenous Peoples: A Changing Dynamic? 2012-11-19 13:30:00

Indigenous peoples and other rural or remote populations often bear the social and environmental cost of extractive industries while obtaining little of the wealth they generate. Recent developments in national and international recognition of Indigenous rights offer the prospect that for Indigenous peoples at least their former economic and social marginalisation may be reduced. A case study of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) development in the Kimberley region of Western Australia shows that these changes are indeed creating opportunities to shape the local impacts of extractive industries. It also illustrates that effective political mobilization by Indigenous peoples is essential if they are to grasp these opportunities, especially as growing pressures to expand extractive industries across the globe increasedemands for access to Indigenous lands. Recent Indigenous experience holds implications for theory on the regional political economy of extractive industries and lessons for other rural and remote communities. Ciaran O’Faircheallaigh is Professor of Politics and Public Policy at Griffith University,

Film "The Expendables 2 2012-11-19 19:00:00


Director: Simon West      USA, 2012, 103 min; 14A

Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Chuck Norris. Dolph Lundgren, Jason Statham, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Jet Li, Liam Hemsworth, Randy Couture, Sylvester Stallone

The bullet-riddled heart of the story concerns simple, simpleton brute force revenge, as the team seeks payback for the death of one of their own, killed on the orders of Jean-Claude van Damme as Euro-evil incarnate. The fellas eat their grub, strap on their weapons, and lumber into combat. For the first time, the dudes are joined by a kick-ass Chinese lady, played by Yu Nan. Assigning artistic values like ''good'' or ''bad'' to The Expendables 2 is a fool's assignment. The movie is excellent crap, fine junk, and an exercise in campy movie nostalgia. –Entertainment Weekly

Exhibit A Child's View From Gaza - Exhibition 2012-11-19 09:00:00

A Child's View From Gaza Exhibition - Tues., Nov. 6 - Tues., Dec. 4, 2012, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. (details below)

Public Reception for A Child's View From Gaza - Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012, 7:00 p.m. (details below)

Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (CJPME), Victoria Chapter, is delighted to announce the presentation in Victoria of a fascinating and heart-wrenchingly beautiful collection of drawings by children and youth from Gaza. The exhibition, A Child's View from Gaza, features 20 drawings by children in Gaza from 5 to 14 years of age, created during the course of art therapy. The exhibition reflects the children's perceptions of the Israeli offensive against Gaza, which took place from December 27, 2008 to January 17, 2009. Each drawing is unique in its perspective and details.

Public Reception:
CJPME cordially invites you to attend a public reception and viewing of A Child's View From Gaza exhibit, at the A. Wilfrid Johns Gallery, Faculty of Education, MacLaurin Building-A Wing, University of Victoria, Victoria, BC, on Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012, at 7:00 p.m. 

There will be a presentation by Dr. Robert Dalton, Art Education Professor, at the University of Victoria. Dr. Dalton's Ph.D. dissertation was focused on the theme of children's war drawings, and since then he has studied collections of drawings from Iraq, Afghanistan and other regions of the world, where the lives of children and youth have been affected by conflict. As well, he has studied art collections where peace, a much more hopeful and uplifting topic, was the theme.

Refreshments will be served. Live Arabic music will be performed. Short film clips (The Future for Gaza's Children-An Interview with Dr. Eyad al-Sarraj, Psychiatrist; Samouni Street; and Gaza: Did You Know?) will be shown.  Guests will be invited to participate in an art activity. A Gazan/Palestinian cultural display will be on hand.

CJPME gratefully acknowledges the A. Wilfrid Johns Gallery for providing this venue.
