Understanding Austerity

“Austerity” is being bandied around a lot these days, and beyond being about cuts, it’s not always clear what we’re talking about. We’ve collected a couple resources for people and organizations who are curious what austerity really means. The resources here are in English, are easily accessible, and go into details about the ways austerity affects individuals and organizations.

The ASSE’s website, ‘United Against Austerity’ , offers beautiful graphics, videos and information about Austerity in Quebec.

The Concordia Student Union has also produced an informative campaign about austerity and possible alternatives, as did the Student Society of McGill University, with their snarkily titled “FCK Austerity” website.
