Undergraduate students today pay 45% more in tuition than students did a decade ago.

When CEGEP and university students in Quebec rose up opposing a 75% tuition increase, the police, enforcers of the Canadian state, reacted in violent brutality against protesters. In 2013, at a protest in Victoriaville police used rubber bullets against students resulting in a student losing vision in one eye.
For this reason among many others we say: Fuck the 150th!
