I signed the UBC Accountable letter because the Galloway case was not afforded due process and this is unjust. Not because I’m a friend of Steven Galloway’s, not because I wanted to stick with my tribe, not because I have no respect for the claimants, not because I condone rape culture, not because I believe Patriarchy is good. Nothing could be further from the truth.
I am a socialist and a feminist, and my work as an activist, writer, educator and journalist speaks for itself. I signed the letter because UBC, by concealing the charges against Galloway and using language that insinuated that he was a sexual predator, allowed social media to hang him. Now we know that he is not and UBC needs to own up to its huge error in judgement.
