June 20, 2012 Forum at SFU Harbour Centre:

Student-led actions in Quebec have forced issues of education, austerity and a
lifetime of debt onto the public agenda.

What can we learn from the student-led education strikes in Quebec?
What would an academic strike in BC look like?

A conversation about how students, professors and other academic workers
can build on this energy and inspire such debate in BC – a province where tuition
has doubled in the last decade and deeper cuts loom on the horizon.


Eva-Locern Panton-Phan (ASSE/CLASSE Concordia University Fine Arts)
Hugo Bonin (ASSE/CLASSE Social Struggles Committee)
Xavier LaFrance (spokesperson for the CASSÉÉ during the 2005 strike)

Audio posting tip

Hi! Just a tip for posting audio: Make sure that the link you post ends in .mp3. That means you are linking directly to the audio file, and not the webpage it is posted on. I updated your link so that it goes to, and will now play in the player. You can get that link from by right clicking on the "Download audio" button and selecting "copy link" since this is the link straight to the file.

Thanks for posting this!
