Much of this week’s focus has been on the plight of Syrian and Kurdish refugees – a struggle for safety, the origins of which deserve deeper discussion.

These include a comic explaining the crisis’ roots in climate change, an interactive website examining Canada’s oppressive relationship with refugees and immigrants, a critical challenge to the use of racialized bodies in white media, as well as several other resources that should help provide a better understanding of the current state of the crisis.
