Il Pleut des Etudiants, Premier de Mai – Montreal

The Toronto Media Co-op has posted this excellent video report by Zach Ruiter about the May Day march organized by the Quebec student movement. The video asks important questions about what it means to live in a society that denies young people affordable education and brutalizes them for engaging in democratic expression. Such a movement also gives us an opportunity to witness an emerging political culture in Quebec that engages the public and holds elected governments accountable to “change government policies towards more social justice, sustainable government, cultural autonomy.”  In what different ways can we do our part, like the Toronto Media Co-op, to educate ourselves and organize support for the Quebec movement in its effort to be heard on issues of education, democracy and social justice?
