Quebec Student Solidarity Tour — July 17

July 7th, 2012

Tuesday, July 17th  the Quebec Student Solidarity Tour comes to Guelph at 7:30pm Van Gogh’s Ear (corner of Wyndham St. and Macdonell St., Guelph)

With a quarter of a million people marching in the streets of Montreal for three months in a row, a broad and powerful united resistance has developed and is shaking Quebec. Despite over a thousand arrests, police violence, and disturbing anti-democratic laws brought-in by the Charest Liberal government, the students have held strong.

Come hear first-hand accounts and analysis explaining how the strike grew from a campaign calling for access to education into a people’s struggle for democracy and a better Quebec.

As federal and provincial austerity budgets impact hard in Ontario, how can we build solidarity as well as a broad, united and growing movement here in Ontario?

GABRIEL NADEAU-DUBOIS – is one of three spokes-people of la CLASSE and has been involved in the negotiations with the Quebec government for accessible, quality and free public post-secondary education in Quếbec.
