Just when I thought I’ve written enough about comparative student protests prior to and surrounding the anniversary of 4th May,
reading the contre-propositions from La Coalition large de l’Association pour une solidarité syndicale étudiante (CLASSE) and la Fédération étudiante collégiale (FECQ) et la Fédération étudiante universitaire du Québec (FEUQ) is becoming more intriguing for me.
CLASSE said what many adults and politicans dare NOT – taxing the financial institutions, in order to help geler the fees. One of my friends once said that few, if any politicans have the guts to take on the banks. Given the latter are the true culprit crises after crises, taxing them might not be a bad idea, only if the provincial and Federal governments are still vertebrates though!
