  • Refugees: Forgotten but Not Erased

    We are refugees, but we are not alone; 5,000,000 million of us are displaced, scattered and denied a rightful identity. This describes the largest refugee population in the world. May 15 commemorated this disaster known to us today as “the Nakba (the catastrophe).”

  • What Is Next for the GSA?

    2015 Elections of the Concordia University Graduate Students Association Have Come and Gone

    The 2014-2015 year has not been a good year for the GSA because not much was delivered.

  • Why You Should Think Twice Before Voting for Community Action

    Student politics is one of the most brutal sectors of student involvement. I myself dived headfirst into positions of governance; I’m currently the Executive Secretary of the School of Community and Public Affairs. Heard of this major? Probably because four out of the seven current CSU executives come from there.

  • Why My Vote Will Go to Community Action (and Why Yours Should Too)

    Two years ago, I made my first steps in student politics.

  • Money Isn’t Innocent

    Canada is described as a democratic constitutional monarchy with a sovereign as head of state and a prime minister as head of government.
