Drop Fees campaign: Strategy and tactics to build the student movement
On 1st February, thousands of students across Canada rallied on the National Day of Action against tuition fees. Tuition fees across Canada have skyrocketed. In Ontario, where tuition fees are the highest in Canada, fees have increased by over 300% since the early 1990s and now stand at an average of $6,640. Students are increasingly realizing that unless they take a stand against a government agenda of neglect for post-secondary education, their financial situation and debt load will continue to deteriorate. For many working-class youth, education is out of reach altogether.
