Earlier today, students in Halifax and across Canada took part in “All Out,” a national day of action movement encouraging students to fight for free and accessible education for all. At King’s, the rally kicked off at the library steps and included talks from Dr. Laura Penny and a representative from The South House, as well as speeches from members of the King’s Students’ Union.

After gathering in the King’s quad, students then marched over to Dalhousie’s Studley campus to join the participating Dal students in the walk to Victoria Park on South Park street where they met with students from NSCAD, Mount Saint Vincent University and the NSCC waterfront campus. From there, hundreds of students marched to Province House to make themselves heard by the government.
