URSU the newly created International Students Caucus will be a holding campus wide Freeze The Fees student Day of Action, on Wednesday, February 2nd in front of the Riddell Centre, calling for an immediate freeze of all international student fees.
 
Organizing is the process of building power as a group and using this power to create positive change in people’s lives. At the University of Regina, it has been too long since there has been student-led actions to bring about social change.
 
Domestic students are already under an MOU , but if we can build student power we can challenge this MOU and the 4 % tuition hikes that are mandated for domestic students. This is rally is not just one rally, it is the start of a movement to build student rights at the University of Regina.
