2012 November 3rd – Solidarity Aganist Austerity

In conjunction with Teacher and other Public Service Unions, High School Student Unions from around the district organized for a march aganist budget cuts negatively impacting communities at large. Along the march it was intended that people from in and outside the march would highlight places of budget cuts through peaceful mediums. However while turning onto a backstreet that lead to the district post office many marchers, mostly high school students were pepper sprayed by Police. Despite the inconvenient use of excessive force, the march became a success.
