As all the students found their way onto the sidewalk at the end of their march tonight and the police marched, biked, and drove slowly through the street one of the CUTV (www.livestream.com...) reporters commented on how it was "like the police are now the ones protesting".
Well, they are...and they will continue to march until you all get back to work ...That is, unless, of course we take our streets back. Not from the police, for they are not our enemies, but from the ones who ordered the police into the streets to protect them and their system. For they are scared as there are millions of us and only a handful of them.
So please don't stop protesting. I don't know exactly what kind of change you will bring but I am truly excited and ready for an alternative to this tired, old, broken, slavery system we're working with now.
MONTREAL - Quebec's education department chided employees this month for openly supporting the student strike movement while on the job, QMI Agency has learned. QMI obtained a memo, dated May 3, sent to all ministry employees reminding them of their ethical obligations. "A few employees of the education ministry are wearing symbols connected with the anti-tuition-hike movement when they are at work and performing their duties," read part of the memo. "You have the obligation of loyalty and allegiance towards (the education department), which requires you to defend the interests of the ministry."
Quebec is indeed an alien country. What’s tolerated there would never be stomached elsewhere in Canada. The farcical outrage over tuition hikes that would still leave Quebec with the lowest post-secondary education fees in North America is incomprehensible to most of us. But it’s a province — a planet in its own orbit — of well-established entitlements, bred in the bone, in its distinctive politics and ethos, and where university tuition was frozen for a decade under the Parti Québécois. The right to a cut-rate education was woven into the Quiet Revolution’s manifesto and flowed from sweeping reforms from the mid-’60s, even though that translated into a higher tax burden for Quebecers and a now ghastly provincial debt load.
She goes next before him--is gone; the knitting-women count Twenty-Two.
"I am the Resurrection and the Life, saith the Lord: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die."
The murmuring of many voices, the upturning of many faces, the pressing on of many footsteps in the outskirts of the crowd, so that it swells forward in a mass, like one great heave of water, all flashes away. Twenty-Three.
I see him, fore-most of just judges and honoured men, bringing a boy of my name, with a forehead that I know and golden hair, to this place-- then fair to look upon, with not a trace of this day's disfigurement --and I hear him tell the child my story, with a tender and a faltering voice.

Taxes! .. Would I pay say .. $100 a month for free higher education for everyone? Even a little more? Why not.. I paid well over $60,000 for my tuition and I'm still paying several hundred a month on loans. Or would I pay say... $400 a month for everyone to have healthcare (not through any form of insurance)? Sure.. I already pay well over $600 and rising every month for health insurance (that when I actually use it still have to pay hundreds of dollars)
Our system is !%$! up.
