Carleton students rally for universal post-secondary education



On November 2, the Carleton University Students Association (CUSA) is joining other student organizations and community organizations across the city in a Student Day of Action calling for universal post-secondary education in Canada. This is part of the Canadian Federation of Students’ National Day of Action, which involves students from 54 campuses in 32 cities across Canada.

Carleton students will rally in the University Centre atrium at 10am, then join the other community groups at 1pm on Parliament Hill. Speakers at the Parliament Hill rally will include Canadian Federation of Students National Chairperson Bilan Arte, Elder Annie Smith St. George and Canadian Labour Congress Executive Vice-President Donald Lafleur.

Students are rallying around three main issues:

  • Universal access to education
  • Education justice for marginalized students
  • Public education that is not-for-profit and not tailored toward corporate interests

CUSA invites all students and members of the community at large to join the movement and get involved in the Day of Action.
