Board of Governors Protest – 8 am – Thursday 30 September
When: 8:00am 30 September 2010
Where: Bethune Square, corner Guy and de Maisonneuve [map]
While the GSA President presents the petition against tuition increases on international students, discusses international tuition and fee restructuring with Concordia’s Board of Governors, come show the Board your concern by joining fellow students to demonstrate outside Board’s meeting!
How much more should students take without taking a stand? First, unwarned tuition increases of up to 50% for international students, then fee restructuring for graduate students in the midst of summer, followed by charging illegal fees to all students – and then Concordia President Judith Woodsworth told the Quebec government that tuition should increase to the Canadian level – an increase of over 100%!
It’s time for all Concordia students to take advantage of our constitutionally guaranteed right to peacefully protest, and speak out against the University’s irresponsible and unjust practices!
|If you can’t make it for 8:00am, please come at 9:00am at the latest as that is when media will arrive!|
|Light breakfast treats will be served.|
