March 22 tuition fee protest 2

On March 22 over 300,000 students were officially on strike—the largest of the nine or so strikes held in Quebec since 1968. Around 200,000 students, though, have voted for unlimited general strikes. This means they remain on strike until they vote to go back to class. Most associations hold regular meetings every week or so, where they discuss the strike, the state of negotiations, and whether or not they should return to class.

Student federations and coalitions are also regularly holding provincial-wide congresses. Student associations in Quebec fall under three large orgniazations: the Coalition large de l'Association pour une solidarité syndicale étudiante (CLASSE), the Fédération étudiante universitaire du Québec (FEUQ) and the Fédération étudiante collégial du Québec (FECQ).

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
