RAW VIDEO: National Day of Action in Halifax

[box type=”info”] Warning: This video contains strong language. [/box]
Yesterday, the Canadian Federation of Students, supporters and post-secondary students nationwide went “All Out” in the form of rallies and protests to call for free and accessible education for all from provincial and federal decision-makers.
In Halifax, students at King’s, Dalhousie, NSCAD University, the NSCC Waterfront campus and Mount Saint Vincent University held rallies at their own campuses before joining forces at Victoria Park. After a rally there they made their way further downtown to Province House to continue the protest.

Their demands:
1. Reduce and eliminate of tuition fees for all
2. Convert loans into up-front, non-repayable grants
3. Increase government funding for post-secondary education in Nova Scotia
4. Honour treaty rights and responsibilities and seek justice for Indigenous learners
5. Ensure safer campuses through legislating stand-alone sexual assault policies
