Please find attached a letter from OCUFA President Kate Lawson to the Minister of Foreign Affairs Canada regarding the arrest and imprisonment in Egypt of York University Professor John Greyson and the University of Western Ontario’s Dr. Tarek Loubani.
As you may be aware, CAUT and a number of faculty associations in Ontario and across the country have sent letters of concern. You are encouraged to write a letter if you have not done so already.
As well, the York University Faculty Association, working with LabourStart, is circulating a petition requesting that the Egyptian government release John Greyson and Tarek Loubani immediately and is asking that the petition be circulated widely, even if you have already participated in other petitions on the same issue. The link for the petition is below:
