Sadly, a zoom-bombing at an FPSE co-sponsored speaker event (September, 2022) has highlighted the fact that we need to be vigilant, and stand with our siblings in the labour movement, and with our friends, neighbours and coworkers, in the fight against race-based hate and injustice, and in support of civil discourse.  The FPSE Climate Action Standing Committee worked to bring to our collective membership two speakers from Nanaimo, one from the Snuneymuxw First Nation, but the event had to be shut down due to a racist intervention.  This is not the first occasion for racist-based zoom-bombing experienced by our members.

The following video resource from the CIEL provides useful tips on preventing zoom-bombing and shutting down zoom sessions when necessary.
