A rally in support of Rod Cumberland is being organized by Friends of Rod Cumberland for Tuesday, Nov. 19, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick in Fredericton.

Rod Cumberland is a wildlife biologist who was fired from his teaching position at Maritime College of Forest Technology on June 20, 2019. Cumberland and his supporters contend that he was removed because he is an outspoken critic of glyphosate spraying in New Brunswick forests and that corporate pressure was placed on the college.

All people concerned with academic freedom are invited to attend.

For further background information please see the AUNBT statement of July 14, 2019 and the CAUT letter of July 5, 2019.
