day of action.

Yesterday was probably one of the most exciting and awe-inspiring moments I will ever have had at university! I participated in student protest against the government who is looking to increase Nova Scotia university tuitions by 3% and also cut down on university funding by 4%! Even though this does not effect me because I am graduating in May, I did it for my friends who are still in school or who are continuing on with their educations. Plus, participating in a protest has always been something that I've wanted to do so now I can cross it off of my bucket list! It was honestly one of the most amazing experiences I've ever had and will always remember it as a pivotal moment in my youth - hope you all enjoy the pictures and get inspired to fight for something you believe in : )

 The protest began on campus ...

 And then we took over Spring Garden Road ...
