Education Action Collective
UMSU’s Home of Student Activism!
Education Action Collective is where student activists congregate and plan our actions to fight for student rights on campus! We’re fighting for a better world, where education is free and our society works for people, not profit. Young people today have grown up in a pretty tough world. Global economic, health and climate crises all intersecting and hitting hard. Inequality skyrocketing, and governments only seeming to encourage it. A casualised workforce is rife with wage theft and exploitation. A housing market made for landlords, not for normal people.
But this doesn’t have to be the world the next generation inherits. Young people around the world are getting organised and mobilising to fight back. From young workers unionising against wage theft to school students taking to the streets for climate justice, indigenous activists from Djab Wurrung country to Standing Rock fighting back against corporate interest and people of colour marching for a system without racism.
If you're passionate about fighting for student rights, or if you're looking to get more involved in activism but don't have much experience, we're here for you! Come along to the collective every Thursday at 1pm in-person and online. We'll be in Training Room 1 on level 3 of Union House, or if you can't come to campus, you can call in on Zoom.
