This is just a short mention to ease me back into blogging after a much bigger break than i realised.
Although happening a lot where internet access is scant or content controls are numerous I was surprised to discover this largely unreported, or at least greatly under-reported, account of Quebecois students fight against the provincial government’s plans to increase tuition fees by a huge 75% over the next few years. Despite 250,000 strong protest marches against the plan their struggle is relatively unknown in comparison to other, recent international student protests such as in Greece, the USA and south america and is only being gradually picked up upon by international, english-speaking mainstream media 2 months after the first huge wave of activity. Let’s hope this new international interest gives them the (if belated) support that they deserve. Solidarity!
