In concert with various organizations, the Canadian Federation of Students (Ontario) is organizing a province-wide student walkout on Wednesday, March 20 at 12:00 p.m. to demonstrate to the Doug Ford government that students will not tolerate its attacks on students.
Post-secondary students and allies are encouraged to walk out of their classes at that time to call on the government to:
- provide more grants NOT loans,
- eliminate tuition fees for ALL students,
- increase public funding for public education,
- protect students’ independent voices, and
- demand the right to organize.
OSSTF/FEESO supports students in their efforts to reverse the Ford government’s assaults on post-secondary education. Our members stand in solidarity with students throughout the province, and all of OSSTF/FEESO stands in solidarity with our university support staff members.
We encourage you, if available, to make tentative plans to participate in one of these walkouts. Together with students, we will make our voices heard.
OSSTF/FEESO is committed to working with the Canadian Federation of Students and encourages members to monitor the Canadian Federation of Students—Ontario website, or the Ontario Universities & Colleges Coalition website for any upcoming events and actions.
