An Interactive Panel On Tuition Fees Resistance

All students regardless of their race, socio-economic background, or immigration status have a right to access post- secondary education. Tuition fees should not be a barrier to post-secondary education in Canada. To equip students with the tools of resistance and key information on the Fight the Fees Campaign, the University of Toronto Graduate Students’ Union (UTGSU) has invited two remarkable speakers from the Canadian Federation of Students-Ontario (CFS-O) to run an interactive panel around OPIRG’s Disorientation theme “Mapping Resistance”. This panel is open to all students and community members and will include a skills-building component! First, there will be an overview of the Fight the Fees Campaign and #alloutnov2 with practical examples of how students across Ontario are demanding accessible post-secondary education. Second, Hildah Otieno, CFS-O organizer, will focus on the experience of international students. Together, both speakers will walk us through the ins and out of why your student movement matters, who is most impacted by high tuition fees, and how you can get involved in your student movement to demand free post-secondary education for all!
