A LEADING member of an organisation which have led mass student strikes in Quebec, Canada will be a guest speaker at a public meeting at Thirroul tomorrow.
Guillaume Legault is a member of Quebec’s CLASSE — the Broad Coalition of the Association for Student Union Solidarity — a radical student organisation at the forefront of student strikes against tuition fee hikes
Organiser of the meeting Tim Dobson said Quebec now is home to one of largest student movements the world.
Guillaume will be speaking about his direct experiences in the brutal strike in Quebec.
“Students in Quebec are showing us what needs to happen, when governments attack fundamental rights, like the right to education,” Dobson said.
“When the Government introduced higher tution fees, mass strikes were organised to show opposition to it. In this country, we also seem to have a government hell bent on attacking tertiary education…”
The public meeting with Guillaume Legault will be held tomorrow (Sunday July 29) at the Thirroul Railway Insitute Hall from midday.
