On June 10, Octopus Books is pleased to launch Le Fond de l'air est rouge, a collection of texts about the 2012 Quebec student uprising by Montreal artist and activist Stefan Christoff.
Written between spring 2011 and summer 2012, this series of articles includes first hand accounts of the incredible street protests in Montreal and reflections on the student strike within the context of Quebec revolutionary history.
Christoff will be joined by Louis-Philippe Véronneau, a student-activist within Coalition large de l’Association pour une solidarité syndicale (CLASSE) and introduced by local labour and feminist activist Aalya Ahmad.
Join us on June 10 as we reflect upon the electrifying Quebec student strike of 2012, and how we can build upon this movement.
Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
