Do you believe in EDU­CA­TION FOR ALL? Are you affect­ed by STU­DENT DEBT and HIGH INTER­EST RATES on stu­dent loans? What does ACA­D­E­M­IC FREE­DOM mean to you?

The Edu­ca­tion for All cam­paign is the man­i­fes­ta­tion of Man­i­to­ba stu­dents’ col­lec­tive vision for a well-fund­ed, high-qual­i­ty, pub­lic post-sec­ondary edu­ca­tion sys­tem that builds a fair, and equi­table soci­ety.

We rec­og­nize that the provin­cial gov­ern­ment needs to elim­i­nate inter­est rates on provin­cial loans as a step clos­er to reduc­ing stu­dent debt as this would be an invest­ment in our com­mu­ni­ties and the youth of our province.

With the active sup­port of the Cana­di­an Fed­er­a­tion of Stu­dents, the Stu­dent Action Net­work is host­ing a 3‑day event at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Man­i­to­ba to spread the col­lec­tive vision.

The event is tak­ing place dai­ly on Mon­day Jan­u­ary 6 to Wednes­day Jan­u­ary 8 from 11:30AM to 2:30PM dai­ly in the Fire­side Lounge, Uni­ver­si­ty Cen­tre.

On Wednes­day Jan­u­ary 8 we are all gath­er­ing at this loca­tion for some fun and cre­ative action!

The move­ment requires mass stu­dent sup­port! The fight for pub­lic edu­ca­tion in Cana­da is part of a glob­al effort to main­tain edu­ca­tion as a basic right for all. Around the world, gov­ern­ments are tabling aus­ter­i­ty” bud­gets con­tain­ing mas­sive cuts to post-sec­ondary edu­ca­tion and oth­er pub­lic ser­vices.

In coun­try after coun­try, ordi­nary peo­ple are refus­ing to allow a cri­sis caused by the dereg­u­la­tion of inter­na­tion­al mar­kets and cor­po­rate greed to threat­en the pub­lic good. In many cas­es, stu­dents are the ones lead­ing this strug­gle.

Join us! Come ring in the new term at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Man­i­to­ba as a vol­un­teer and sup­port­er!
