Cuts hit Development and Peace Hard

Will they cut off groups that support abortion?

The Union Rep said:

"It was decided not to mobilize its forces, not to make waves, not to risk offending the government and ... we were cut," reads the internal memo of the Union of Employees of Development and Peace.

Defunding long-term development partnerships and an increased emphasis on emergency relief is distorting the social justice mandate of Development and Peace, the union said.

Oh no, their Social Justice mandate is being distorted!

Okay then, cut the natural disaster relief funding, and then nothing will be distorted.

The Union rep. can enjoy its ideological purity.
