On Wednesday, March 28, five students from the University of Winnipeg held an action to promote the Red Tent petition to defend social housing in Canada. To catch people’s attention they set up a mock bachelor apartment in a busy walkway outside the main campus building. Using a combination of charm, and harassment, they talked students and faculty into stopping, then told them about the expiring operating grants and urged them to sign the petition. By the end of their four hour action they had collected over five hundred signatures.
Thank you Sara, Erin, Chelsey, Matt and Ron. You did a fabulous job!
