Le fond de l'air est rouge: Booklet launch

Presented in collaboration with OPIRG's 'Q' series and the SGPS

Le fond de l’air est rouge is 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. Published by the Howl! Arts collective, this zine brings movement-based reporting originally published online into a physical format. The goal of the zine is to create a piece of cultural documentation on a key moment in Quebec popular history.

*With presentations by:

Stefan Christoff is a writer, community activist and musician based in Montreal.

Louis-Philippe Véronneau is a student activist based in Montreal, who in 2010 started to organize within the Quebec student movement after beginning studies at Collège de Maisonneuve. Louis-Philippe has since been active within SOGÉÉCOM, a major local union under the umbrella of Association pour une solidarité syndicale étudiante (ASSÉ). Currently Louis-Philippe collaborates with the Research & Academic affairs committee in ASSÉ.

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.
