Join the RSM for a public documentary screening on the activities of the far-left in the Quebec student struggle and open discussion to follow. Tuesday, Feb. 12th at 7 pm, OISE rm. 4410.
The Quebec Student Strike of last year no doubt inspired and radicalized a generation of young people. As capitalists continue ravaging this earth, ruthlessly exploiting and attacking workers and poor people across the globe in its relentless drive to squeeze more & more profit for their greedy selves, this generation of youth–and in particular, working class youth–is left facing a bleak, harsh, and grim future. Students in Quebec mounted a fierce resistance against the capitalist agenda, first fighting against tuition fee hikes and then expanding the fight into a mass social struggle against the Liberal government. The utter defiance against the Quebec government’s repression and attempt to implement a special (emergency) law was a blow to bourgeois legality!
The Revolutionary Student Movement invite those who are fed up with the current state of student politics and who want to organize on a firmly anti-capitalist foundation to a free public documentary screening (with English subtitles) on the activities of far-left during the strike. We welcome discussion on the pitfalls of peaceful protests vs. the militant and sometimes violent actions that occurred over the course of the strike; on spontaneity and organization in the anti-capitalist struggle; on popular democracy in our schools and on our campuses. The RSM will present a report-back from the First National Conference for Students and Youth Activists, that took place in Toronto last December with the hope of rallying new forces to the cause!
