GDC Local 6 congratulates IWW member Denis Rancourt for his victory. On June 25, 2009, the University of Ottawa dropped its charges of trespassing against Denis for coming onto campus to facilitate a film discussion at his weekly Cinema Politica/Academica, which was open to the public. His graduate student Marc Kelly was also arrested, but released without charge.
Denis is still fighting to get his job back, since his questionable dismissal by the University of Ottawa on March 31, 2009. We urge people to help him get reinstated by sending an email to the University of Ottawa president Alan Rock email@example.com and please be sure to copy the chair of Denis’ education defense committee firstname.lastname@example.org.
