Student Strikes - International Town Hall

Start: Thursday, December 17, 2020 7:00 PM Eastern Standard Time (US & Canada) (GMT-05:00)

This is a virtual event

Students in Manchester have started a national movement with the largest rent strike in British history to win concessions from their university. At the same time, Columbia YDSA has been organizing the largest tuition strike in history, backed by 3,300 students, as part of an effort to fight back against rising tuition costs, student debt, as well as to democratize the university on a number of social justice issues ranging from labor rights to divestment to police abolition to housing justice to anti-racism. Dozens of student groups across the country have expressed support and interest in replicating these efforts and we hope we can be part of a national movement! On Thursday, December 17 at 7 pm ET, we will be co-hosting a town hall with University of Manchester Rent Strike, UChicago for Fair Tuition, and CUNY Rising Alliance, and inviting other student groups to share details about all our organizing efforts.
