Thousands of websites go black for Blackoutspeakout
Released by FPSE
undreds of organizations representing thousands of citizens, activists and union members are making a statement today by darkening their websites," said Cindy Oliver, President of the Federation of Post-Secondary Educators (FPSE). "The campaign is part of a broader effort to protest the unprecedented measures that the Harper government is taking to radically re-shape economic and social policy in Canada," Oliver added.
"Whether it's the changes
to Employment Insurance, the dismantling of environmental oversight
or the relentless cutting of federal services and programs across
our country, the Tories are implementing profound changes in Canada.
None of these changes were ever mentioned during the federal
election, yet Mr. Harper, with his majority status firmly in hand,
is now imposing measures that are putting Canada on the wrong
track," Oliver stressed.
