Solidarity at George Emmanuel United Church

Be on the lookout when walking down George Street, you might be inspired by diversity resisting white supremacy. “We are trying to create as safe a space as possible” said Kemi Akapo. "We need to speak up for love and inclusion and speak against hate" said Kemi.

Those who come across this space from 10-12pm can expect to experience the “art out” portion of the day, where community members can express solidarity through chalking sidewalks. From 12-2pm, expect speeches from activist Desmond Cole, Elder Shirley Williams and Spoken word from Niambi Lee. From 2-4, there will be drumming.

Rosemary Ganley, who has been an activist in Peterborough for 50 years is inspired by what she saw today “there’s so much coalition building...this is the fruit of it.” She believes in the power of “reframe festival and Trent students” in creating “an environment that responds to poisonous ideas with solidarity and protest.”

Students from Trent Blati Shakz and Celine Daher we according to Blati “here to spread love and celebrate diversity.” Celine states “our rally is not here to attack anyone, but here to show acceptance and love, and to have peace in peterborough.”

“A lot of Trent students are international students...we can all live in solidarity together and it’s important that we show that to the community.”

It should be noted that although Kevin Goudreau’s permit for his rally was denied, that he will still be protesting in Confederation Park at 2pm. Be safe folks.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

"Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system."
