CKUT Off the Hour: Tuition Hikes and Student Strikes

CKUT Off the Hour: Tuition Hikes and Student Strikes

The story of student activism is inextricably intertwined with the story of tuition fees in Quebec, and, therefore, with tuition hikes.  The student movement in Quebec is a powerful one, and it's also divisive, especially at McGill, whose students haven't historically played a role in the mobilization for education issues over the last fifty years.  This is a brief summary of the recent student protests leading up the current strike, including footage from student protests against the hike and McGill general assemblies regarding student groups' official stance towards the movement in general. 

This report was originally aired on CKUT's Off the Hour on Friday, Feburay 24, 2012, 17h-18h.
