The Role of Activist Research in Resisting Austerity
John Clarke of the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty (OCAP)
November 3, 2011 - Laurentian University, Sudbury, Ontario

In Ontario, governments at every level are stepping up the attacks. All working people are being hit but the prime targets at this point are the poorest people and their income support system as well as public sector workers and their unions. The nature of the attacks being launched by Harper in Ottawa and local politicans are such that a failure to fight back effectively will lead to terrible defeats. We must re-examine what it means to mobilize resistence and build a common front against the austerity agenda we are facing.

Organized by the Centre for Research in Social Justice and Policy (CRSJP) at Laurentian University.

Sponsored by:
- The Labour Studies program (LU)
- The Poverty, Homelessness and Migration Project
- The Sociology Department (LU)
- The International Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Law
- The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE): Ontario Division & Local 5011
