On May 22, marked the 100th day of the ongoing Quebec student strike, one of the largest student mobilizations in history.
Last Friday, the Quebec government enacted a draconian emergency law (Bill 78) intended to break the strike.
The law outlaws public assembly, imposes harsh fines for strike activity and effectively criminalizes protest, just as the movement is escalating to unprecedented levels.
On Tuesday in New York City, we demonstrated in solidarity with Quebec students and in defense of our right to protest.
An increase in the powers of the police and the state anywhere is an attack on us everywhere.
