In September of this year Baristas Rise Up in conjunction with the Canadian Federation of Students-Nova Scotia held a panel discussion entitled Study, Work, Organize in Halifax, Nova Scotia as part of NSPIRG‘s rad frosh.
The panel explored the problems facing students and young workers in Nova Scotia and creative strategies and tactics for fighting back. The issues, strategies and tactics raised here are relevant across the country as young and precarious workers try to figure out how to grow their power and improve their working and living conditions.
