The Maple Spring: The Student Movement in Quebec
Empire, Power, and People with Andrew Gavin Marshall- Episode 17
There has been a virtual media blackout - or outright propaganda campaign in regards to the current student strike and emerging social movement taking place in Quebec, Canada, now entering its 12th week. There have been over 160 protests in over 70 days, with constant police brutality, state repression, and increased activism and mobilization from the youth. Beginning over plans to raise tuition by 75%, the movement has expanded into what is now being referred to as the 'Maple Spring,' a movement against the social, political, and economic inequalities which exist in Quebec, in Canada, and around the world. Learn what the media isn't telling you about what's happening here in Quebec.
