About

Unite Against Austerity is a campaign initiated by SmartChange.ca with the following goals:

  • To make the austerity agenda the primary lens through which Canadians understand the country's political landscape and make political decisions
  • To support the expansion of alliances and strategic action in anti-austerity work in Canada 

The campaign has several facets:

  • This web site and video, which aims to engage people living in Canada in understanding and opposing the austerity agenda
  • Events in Vancouver and Toronto, which aim to create momentum for local organizing
  • Tens of thousands of posters and stickers, which aim to stimulate broader conversations about austerity
  • A fund to support grassroots anti-austerity organizing
  • The possibility of a national week of actions against austerity in the fall
