Solidarité with the Quebéc Revolt

In Uncategorized on May 26, 2012 at 3:27 pm

Right now, in Quebéc, there is a strike that has been happening for over 100 days.

Protestors have been working to fight a potential tuition hike of 75% over the next five years. Demonstrations have been occurring every night. The government has been trying to suppress activism – especially by passing Loi 78, a draconian law preventing protesting within 50 yards of a university and preventing large bodies from being able to gather.

A beautiful video was posted online a couple days ago, detailing why the strike is happening, who is running the strike, and how it has been functioning on the ground. Follow the link to watch it here: https://vimeo.com/42702955
