Québec Student Strikes: Lessons from the front lines
Tuesday, June 19, 2012 at 7:00 PM (PDT)
Vancouver, British Columbia
REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED, HOWEVER 150 SEATS ARE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR. PLEASE COME EARLY TO GUARANTEE YOURSELF A SEAT.
Since February of this year, students in Québec have stood strong against tuition fee hikes proposed by an unpopular Jean Charest government. Thousands of students sacrificed a semester of study, and hundreds of thousands have joined them in the streets in defense of accessible public post-secondary education.
As President and Vice-President of La Fédération étudiante universitaire du Québec, Martine Desjardins and Yanick Grégoire have been on the front lines of the Québec student strikes.
Join us for an evening of discussion with these inspiring leaders from Québec’s student movement, along with Federation of Post-Secondary Educators President Cindy Oliver, Canadian Federation of Students BC Chairperson Katie Marocchi and host Jim Sinclair.
Panelists will examine the Québec student strikes and will delve into the societal importance of tuition fee policy in Québec.
