The Quebec student strike is inspiring people across Canada who would like to see a similar mass movement against austerity. How can we spread the Quebec spring?

Come to hear how the Quebec student strike was organized, the possibility of bringing the Quebec example to Toronto students and how we can expand the struggle into a broader fight against the austerity agenda.
