Day 03 - pre update

I've got dozens of photos and plenty of audio of today's demonstration outside Chrysler Tower.

To be brief, there were hundreds of supporters out today - including members from faculty associations from universities all across the country including York, Trent, Laurentian, Concordia, New Brunswick, and many, many more. I'll try and provide a complete list later on. They all contriuted donations between $1000 and $1500 to help support the WUFA.

The CAUT, as reported earlier, donated $1 million towards the efforts of the WUFA.

Kenny Lewenza (CAW) spoke, along with Brian Masse (Windsor West MP) and Joe Comartin.

Many students were in attendance. The Drama studnets came out in costume and put on a small play - pictures to follow.

UWSA president Tiffany Gooch dedicated their support to the WUFA's efforts against the University of Windsor.

There's so much information to go through, so many pictures, and so much audio, that it's going to take me a while to sort through this all, but I'll get it to you in parts as the evening goes on - and then hopefully have some more news for you tomorrow.

- - - Also, I have an interview with "Mike Gahser" who promises to have more interviews available on Youtube shortly.
