WINDSOR STUDENTS RALLY DURING PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS

University of Windsor Students’ Assemble to Mourn the Loss of their Education

WINDSOR – The University of Windsor Students’ Alliance (UWSA) is hosting a student rally to protest the current strike. The assembly will take the form of a memorial service for the lost education at the University of Windsor on Monday, September 29th at 2:30pm in front of the CAW Student Centre.

This student protest will have no affiliation with WUFA or with the administration. It is strictly to foster student unity and support and show BOTH SIDES that students are gravely concerned with the future of their education at the University of Windsor. Students who attend are encouraged to wear all black to correspond with the memorial service theme.

The event will consist of a student procession on campus, speeches, and the launch of a student petition to the government to intervene and get students back into the classroom.

As the previous UWSA rally last Tuesday was scheduled to coincide with a board of governors meeting, this protest is meant to backpack onto a presidential address by Dr. Wildeman to each of the student councils of UWSA, OPUS, and GSS.

After the address, UWSA members will be available in the pub in order to allow students to pose their member questions regarding the briefing and situation.
