A protest rally called Nova Scotians Rise Up will be taking place at the Legislature in Halifax on Tuesday, February 27, beginning at 12 p.m. and running until 5 p.m.
Many groups and organizations from across the province are expected to come together to protest against the sitting Liberal Government that they say is undermining and ignoring them on issues that are affecting their families, their livelihoods, their communities and the environment they live in. Organizers say people in this province are tired of being ignored on the many concerns they have, and it is time to stand together as Nova Scotians and let the government know that we are all in this together and will support each other in our fights.
This protest rally is for the people of Nova Scotia to have their say. This will not be a time for Nova Scotia Politicians to speak.
There will be many speakers from around the province covering topics such as: health care, education, mental health, fisheries, environment, poverty, income assistance, collective bargaining, worker’s rights, human rights and more.
“The government’s tactic of dividing us is over,” says Stacey Rudderham, one of the organizers. She says the time has come for the people of this province to take a stand against government and corporate greed.
“We have all had enough.”
All Nova Scotians are invited to attend along with the many hundreds already confirmed.
The post on Facebook about the protest rally has garnered a lot of attention from across the province. It has been shared more than 1,200 times and people keep on sharing it daily.
