Feminine hygiene products will be on full display this afternoon as part of a protest against GST on such items.
University of Winnipeg students for Nonviolent Social Change will host a “Hygiene Gardening Party,” where tampons and pads will make up “hygiene trees.”
A group of Faculty of Arts students will be protesting from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. to reignite the discussion on the issue on Parliament Hill, and demand that taxes on feminine hygiene products be abolished.
“Menstruation is a necessity, so why are gender based taxes such as the one on feminine hygiene products still in place?,” a news release read.
The gardening party will be held in front of Wesley Hall at 510 Portage Avenue.
