Spreading the Maple Spring: Lessons from Quebec’s Student Strike
The forum will address what happened in Quebec, but also how the hard-earned lessons of the longest student strike in Canadian history can be applied to organizing across the country. We hope to be able to build bridges of solidarity with movements in other parts of Canada, ties that are critical to mounting a pan-Canadian movement against Stephen Harper and austerity.
Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois, former spokesperson for CLASSE
Cloé Zawadzki-Turcotte, a former member of CLASSE’s executive and a key organizer behind the strike
Ethan Cox, rabble.ca‘s Quebec correspondent and a former student organizer
When and where: Oct. 3, 7PM, Room 4M47, University of Winnipeg
