My friend Margaux (skankatr0n) is planning a protest against austerity and hopefully inform people on both sides of the debate, and is hoping to get as many people involved as possible. But what is austerity?
As Margaux said, to simplify it is
“The fact that the government is doing spending cuts to places that need it most, such as education, social programs and medicine, while big companies do not feel the pain of such spending cuts”
“Quebec has one of the least expensive college tuition, but this is a matter of principle and general well being. It hopefully will help give a broader insight on the debate; it is understood that big companies do not face these cuts as it is a way to preserve an unjust capitalist society, and we, as the voice of a new generation, need to to make our society a better place and fight for those who need it most”
If you want to join the protest, message Margaux here and spread the word so your fellow Canadian followers can see the message!
