On January 29th, 2017, six Muslim men: Abdelkrim Hassane, Azzeddine Soufiane, Aboubaker Thabti, Ibrahima Barry, Khaled Belkacemi, and Mamadou Tanou Barry, were brutally murdered by Alexandre Bissonnette as they stood in prayer at the Islamic Cultural Centre of Quebec City. 19 were injured as a result of the shooting. 

To mark the one year anniversary of one of the largest mass shooting in Canada since 1989, Muslim Societies, Global Perspectives invites you to attend a panel discussion. Themes to be explored will include: the use of the term terrorism in responding to this event, Islamophobia and state policy as well as understanding this event in relation to alt-right and white nationalist organizing and groups in Canada. 

This event will open with a reading from local poet and author Sadiqa de Meijer 

Panelists will include: 
Imam Ryan Carter
Dr. Margaret Aziza Pappano, Department of English, Queen's University
Dr. Ariel Salzmann, Department of History, Queen's University
Sayyida Jaffer, community member

A discussion will follow. This event will be moderated by Dr. Adnan Husain.

Free admission and all are welcome! Donations will be accepted to support Aymen Derbali, left paralyzed in the shooting, to afford a safe and accessible home (More info here: https://www.launchgood.com/project/united_with_aymen_derbali__tous_unis_pour_aymen#!/)
