Dawson Students cutting hair on Oct. 20 in solidarity with Iranian protesters

October 19th, 2022

In response to the major human rights violations by the Islamic Republic of Iran, an informal collective of Dawson College students of Iranian background is mobilizing to show solidarity. The Dawson community is invited to join them on Thursday, Oct. 20 at 12 p.m. in the Lower Atrium. There will be various ways to show support, including petition signing and cutting a lock of one’s hair. Cutting hair has been used as a symbolic act of the Iranian protesters.

The goal of this event is to raise awareness about violations against human rights in Iran. “We hope to send a clear message to the Canadian federal government that students throughout Canada care about this issue and that we expect the government to address it,” said Kiana Lalavi of the organizing committee.

Protests in Iran started over a month ago. According to contacts on the ground, the Islamic Republic has cut Iran’s internet to stop news of brutal crackdowns and violence from reaching the rest of the world. During this time, they have locked down Sharif University and abused students inside. They have arrested, tortured, and murdered students as young as seven years old. Very recently, they have set a massive fire in Evin Prison, which holds hundreds of journalists, scientists, and innocent protestors.

Students identified 19 mushrooms on campus

Foragers and those who enjoy gourmet food know that it is mushroom season in Quebec.

Dawson students are also hunting for mushrooms as part of a project to identify as many kinds of life on campus as possible.

The Sustainability Office created a new nurse tree garden, a biodiversity zone in the P1 parking lot area. They used tree trunks and branches from the property to create this habitat and also injected spores into some large stumps around the campus.

The Sustainabili-Team volunteers have now identified 19 species of mushroom, including chicken of the woods (pictured).

Dawson’s mushroom inventory is part of a larger biodiversity project on campus that will be announced in the new year.
