-Solidarity with demands of CLASSE stop tuition hikes & oppose repressive anti-protest Bill 78. Bring casseroles (pots, pans, spoons to make noise) Wear red!

Striking students in Quebec are setting an example for youth and all of us across the continent to take a stand against tuition hikes and austerity (take from the 99%--give to the 1%). The student strike was organized in a highly democratic way and aims to practice real democracy. When pushing back, students and allies have been met with repression, including violence, mass arrests, media smears and the anti-protest Bill 78, which severely limits free speech and assembly.

Quebec's struggle is our struggle; we too face tuition hikes, education cuts and massive student debt. Stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Quebec; be part of the growing global movement of resistance to the rule, austerity and corruption of the 1%.
