    I am a graduate student of Journalism at UBC and I am currently working as an intern at CTV News. I broke this news last week and i am attaching my follow up to the original story. I will be covering the rally on Sunday as well.

    Given the mail strike, is there another way I can make a donation from Toronto? I will gladly phone with my credit card number, if that would help. Or go to a bank if there is a trust fund.

      Thanks for your question Janne. There will be an online portal expected to be available by the end of today. I will update this site as soon as the portal is available.

    Is it possible to make a donation by phone, using a credit card, during the postal lockout? Or to a trust fund in a bank?

      Hi Janne,
      If you’re unable to donate online, call 6048223644 to donate over the phone.

    This petition is aimed at maintaining public pressure in support for Rumana’s rights to justice, education and to live with freedom from violence. As Canadian citizens, a key source of leverage in achieving this aim is the Bangladeshi High Commission in Ottawa. The Commission’s media statement called for \exemplary punishment\ for the perpetrator of the violence against Rumana. We must know hold them to account for following through to ensure justice is served in this case.

    Thanks, Joann
