Who’s Who of the Quebec Student Movement: Jeanne Reynolds & Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois, CLASSE (Coalition large de l’association pour une solidarite syndicale etudiante) student leaders
June 2, 2012
CLASSE spokespersons Jeanne Reynolds and Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois have become outspoken revolutionary voices indicative of the Quebec Student Movement. With red felt squares pinned to their shirts, the student leaders have articulated the demands of the thousands of students, unions, teachers and residents marching throughout the streets of Canada every day.
On Thursday, student groups demanded a tuition freeze, but were rejected by government officials. Although university tuition in Quebec is the lowest in Canada, many Quebecois fear this is the first step toward an American for-profit education system. The proposed hike is $254 each year for seven years.
CLASSE called for a massive demonstration in Quebec today. This is the 40th straight day of protests.
