In episode one, the six travelers begin their journey in heart of Canada; Winnipeg, Manitoba. Here they meet prominent Indigenous activist Michael Redhead Champagne who sheds some light on the road ahead. In Winnipeg their journey includes working alongside two community driven movements; the Bear Clan patrol which works to keep Winnipeg's notorious North End streets safe, and Drag the Red which takes on the sobering task of helping to solve cases of missing and murdered Indigenous women by searching the river, and the riverbank, for remains or other evidence. From Winnipeg the group travels over 2,000 km north to the remote Inuit community of Kimmirut where they discover life on the land is more intense than they ever could have imagined.

Series overview: Most Canadians have never taken the time to get to know Indigenous People or visit their communities. First Contact takes six average Canadians, all with strong opinions about Indigenous People, on a unique 28-day journey into Indigenous Canada. Leaving their everyday lives behind the six will travel deep into Winnipeg, Nunavut, Alberta, Northern Ontario, and the coast of BC to visit Indigenous communities.

Narrated by host and social justice activist George Stroumboulopoulos, First Contact is a journey that will turn the six participants' lives upside down. Challenging their perceptions and confronting their opinions about a world they never imagined they would see. It is an experience that will change their lives, forever.

Date: Friday - September 14, 2018
Time: 12:00 PM
Location: Arthur V. Mauro Centre for Peace & Justice at St. Paul’s College, University of Manitoba – Room 252

Presented by: Arthur V. Mauro Centre for Peace & Justice at St. Paul’s College in collaboration with the University of Manitoba Peace and Conflict Studies PhD and Joint Masters (University of Winnipeg) Graduate Programs

Event cost: Free

Event is: Open to the Public

A Brown Bag Lecture with Dr. Jonathan Black-Branch, Dean of Law and Marcel A. Desautels Chair in Private Enterprise and the Law of the Faculty of Law, University of Manitoba.

The 2017 Treaty Prohibiting Nuclear Weapons marks an important milestone in nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament law. It highlights growing support for decisive action against nuclear destruction, firmly asserting that nuclear weapons actually threatens global security and does not to protect it; contrary to what was traditionally argued under deterrence theory. Nevertheless, despite unprecedented support to ban nuclear weapons, the Treaty itself lacks international consensus. Some States adamantly oppose the Treaty, refusing to endorse its coming into legal force and question its legitimacy on a global front and seek to undermine its credibility as an arms-control Treaty.

Despite these apparent draw-backs, Professor Black-Branch argues that the Treaty Prohibiting Nuclear Weapons represents a significant paradigm shift in the international community. It is a game-changer, disrupting conventional thinking on nuclear security and the manner by which politicians, diplomats and international lawyers alike approach non-proliferation, disarmament and the regulation of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes in a changing global community.

Problems regarding nuclear security and non-proliferation continue to raise important legal debates.  “The potentially harmful effect of weapons of mass destruction makes it imperative to consider further legal consequences. … there is the need for a paradigm-shift in how we approach, interpret, and apply this area of law, [with]an ever-emerging body of nuclear law, consisting of common rights and obligations binding on all states …. comprised of the content, principles and political objectives of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and includes legislation adopted pursuant to the NPT and the case law of the International Court of Justice.”

The World Is My Country - Documentary

Date: Sunday - October 6, 2019
Time: 3:00 PM
Location: Canadian Museum for Human Rights, 85 Israel Asper Way, Winnipeg, MB R3C 0L5

The documentary focuses on World Citizen Garry Davis, a life-long peace activist whose bold actions were instrumental in the unanimous acceptance of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

 

Davis, a Broadway comedian and B-17 bomber pilot compelled by the pain of war to give up his national citizenship, embarks on an audacious mission to rise above nationalism, heal the wounds of war, and prevent World War III. With a single act of courage, this song and dance man sparks a huge people-power movement that draws Albert Einstein, Albert Camus and a cast of thousands into an amazing journey that Martin Sheen calls “a roadmap to a better future.”

 

Human rights lawyer David Gallup will introduce the film and lead an interactive discussion afterwards about the world citizenship movement and World Citizen Clubs. This event is co-sponsored by World Service Authority® (www.worldservice.org) and Citizens for Global Solutions® (www.globalsolutions.org).
