TUFA’s Executive Committee has been apprised of the imprisonment in
Iran of Professor Homa Hoodfar, an anthropologist at Concordia University,
Montreal. In response to a request for assistance from our colleagues in the
Concordia University Faculty Association, TUFA is sending $1,000 to support their
campaign to secure Prof. Hoodfar’s release and we are sending a letter as requested
by CUFA to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Stéphane Dion.
There is, however, also a role for individual TUFA members to play in
supporting Prof. Hoodfar and that is to
add your names to the +4,300 academics who have signed a petition
calling for Prof. Hoodfar’s immediate release.
