A film by Neil Cavalier and Liisa Schofield
"We don't have a choice to give up - that means we fight harder"
Following the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty's campaign to raise social assistance rates in Ontario last year, this documentary includes first hand accounts from women involved in the campaign and footage from recent demonstrations and actions. In the past year OCAP's Special Diet Clinics put millions of dollars into poor communities. The provincial liberals responded by slashing the special diet supplement and raising social assistance rates by a mere 2%.
This documentary-film focuses on the Raise the Rates Campaign, and Liisa Schofield (one of the film-makers) will be in attendance.
