Laval students follow through on tuition hike strike

October 25, 2007

So far, it seems only Laval University's students have followed through with a promised strike against the tuition thaw in Quebec.  Students walked out last Thursday, after the Association des Étudiantes et Étudiants en Anthropologie de l’Université Laval (AÉÉA) voted to launch an immediate strike the day before -- to be re-voted every three days.  Another 8 student associations representing 20,000 students, have voted in favour of a general strike mandate.  It is proposed to launch the strike when 25,000 represented students are on board.
