On Thursday, January 19 at 7pm, social justice activist, academic, journalist and feminist Judy Rebick will speak at University of Guelph’s War Memorial Hall about the formation and future of the Occupy Movement which grabbed the spotlight across North America and around the world last fall.

Rebick will be sharing her experience at Occupy Wall Street, Toronto and Vancouver in relation to her participation in movements since the 1960’s, and where the movement needs to go moving forward. University of Guelph professor Tamara Small will facilitate a discussion with Rebick and the audience following her talk.
Doors open at 6:30pm.
