Tonight, May 24th, thousands of people throughout Quebec have spontaneously gotten up and are marching throughout the province.
What started off, 102 days ago, as a student protest to which the government responded by passing Bill 78, a repressive law limiting the right to protest has now become a protest throughout the province by students, workers, job seekers. It doesn't matter anymore where you are from, people have had enough of this corrupt government.
A couple of days ago, a teacher suggested using a method that worked well in Chile and in Argentina. The idea was to get people outside between 8:00 and 8:15 and to start banging on cooking pans. People throughout the province started doing this, but didn't stop at 8:15. And tonight they just started marching through the streets.
One protest was organised in Montreal and one in Quebec city, but many more are going on throughout Montreal and across Quebec.
I never ever, in my wildest dreams, expected to see something like this here.
I am searching for English language coverage and will be posting these.

Hi All, here is my 2 cents.... I believe this talk of "why should I pay for other people to get free tuition..." is more of a trained viewpoint than an honest argument. Libya, before NATO recently destroyed it, provided free university, free farmland & equipment should anyone want it, a $50,000 start to any married couple wanting to buy a house, free health care (like we used to have in Canada before the privatization / profit motive was introduced. Oh ya, & it was Illegal for banks to charge interest on loans !!! (No wonder NATO had to liberate those happy, wealthy people...)
--->youtu.be... youtube vid, "What I learned about Libya & Gaddafi"
Some might say "Ya well Libya's oil $$$ made that possible" but I would counter that Canada has more natural resources & wealth ( & Oil ) than Libya. Due to legally binding *free trade agreements* made by a Canadian Prime Minister in the 80's it would now be illegal for Canada to decide to offer cheaper gasoline to it's own citizens. Illegal to subsidize the cost for the people who truthfully own the oil reserves in the first place...
Where I live now ( I left Canada 3 years ago ) The local government here subsidizes fuel costs (since this country has lots of oil ) & people here pay 40 cents per litre / $ 1.30 per Gallon.
& even in the U.S., the $TRILLIONS$ that go & have gone to military & weapons which will eventually will only be used on families, dads, moms & kids anyways (because let's face it, there are NO terrorists on this earth other than those in politics & business) All those trillions could go into your back pocket & then you wouldn't have to pay tuition fees, even if you did want to go to school.
Really, this planet is ours, copyright is a scam, property taxes are a scam, war is the biggest scam of all, poverty is by design, not by nature or accident. It's all a big scam really. Vive le Quebec Libre !!!! Peace
