Victorious Quebec student movement - lecture

2 PM 9th of December, Kupoli of Uusi Ylioppilastalo (Entrance B)

13th of February 2012 students of Quebec of Canada launched a strike against hike of tuition fee, which was joined by up to 150 000 students. Up to half a million people joined protest marches against emergency law to curb the protest. In beginning of the September, after tuition freeze, the remaining student associations on strike voted to return to class. How was this victory organised, and what may we learn from the Quebec students?

Discussion is introduced by participator of the movement from Montreal through internet connection.

Disturbances - Lecture Series

Disturbances is an open series of lectures and discussions at the crossroads of society, philosophy, history, economy and resistance.

We are already aware that we can not live as before, but we do not know what the future holds. Others are stuck in the past, but we only want to understand it. Even a small disturbance of an initial condition can lead a system into a completely different state.

Our speakers are Finnish and international anti-authoritarian researchers and activists. Events are organized in cooperation with A-ryhmä and AutOp, two student groups of the University of Helsinki.

Our program is created by the participants themselves, if you want to join or simply get in contact, write a-ryhma@riseup.net.

The results of the first 30 years of “democracy” in Ukraine are, to put it mildly, unconvincing. The economy and the media are in the hands of rival oligarchs, corruption is at staggering levels, economic development lags behind many African countries, and in addition, the country has become the...
