In this podcast we highlight the ongoing Quebec Student Strike and the growing social movement in la bélle province with pieces from Meghan Kinch, a great audio clip from Judi Rebick and Kai Nagata ripping on mainstream media and commending the quebec students. We also read the statement from the CLASSÉ appeal for wider 'social strike' against Charest government, and we react to the fascist diatribe printed in a major quebec daily newspaper which called for violent attacks on students, and look into the idea of a "Maple Spring"
We then report back on May Day protests from across turtle island.
