Québec student strike leader to speak at ANU
Last semester in Québec more than 150,000 university students went on strike against tuition fee hikes. When the provincial government criminalised these and other protests 300,000 demonstrated against their action and for students.
As Vice-Chancellor after Vice-Chancellor in Australia attacks staff, students and courses, including here in the ACT, there may be lessons from the Québec student strike for all concerned about the direction higher education is taking globally and in Australia.
Guillaume Legault, one of the leaders of the Québec student strike, will be speaking at the ANU on Monday 30 July at 1 pm in room G 50 of the Haydon-Allen Building in a meeting organised by Socialist Alternative and Socialist Alliance.
