Predators must have knowledge about their prey if they are going to be successful hunters. It is clear that we have been studied and our weaknesses have been exploited in an effort to exhaust us economically, physically and spiritually. Renowned researcher, Alan Watt goes so far as to state that the perpetrators responsible for this ultimately want to destroy any sense of individuality in us whatsoever.

The Continued Struggle for Educational Access by the Afrikan Community: In Solidarity with the Transitional Year Programme
The Network for Pan-Afrikan Solidarity (NPAS) stands firmly in solidarity with the Transitional Year Programme (TYP) and the Transitional Year Programme Preservation Alliance (TYPPA). The University of Toronto has been imposing conditions on the TYP that are not beneficial to the success of the program or the well-being of the students the program serves. We call on people of good conscience to support the TYP in resisting a restructuring plan that would dilute or destroy the culture and practice of equity and excellence in education that the TYP has carefully built over the last 43 years!
