In the centre, there is black text that reads ‘OPIRG Kingston’s People’s History Walking Tour Come hear the stories of feminist resistance & queer liberation & anti-war struggles & so many other stories of resistance and struggle from the Kingston and Queen’s communities!’.  In the bottom right corner there is black text that reads ‘Starts May 2 – 4pm on the lawn of the Grey House – 51 Bader Lane]

WHAT: In partnership with Jane’s Walk Kingston, OPIRG is hosting our People’s History Walking Tour!

This walking tour describes the forgotten history of oppression and resistance on the streets and in the institutions of Kingston. Focused on anti-racist, queer liberation, feminist, affordable-education and anti-imperialist struggles.

Have you heard of the collective reactions to war, the Oka crisis and the long standing rape-culture at Queen’s University?
