Indeed, the protests in the streets of Montreal have not stopped, and it is now, as Hedges notes, "the longest and largest student protest in Canadian history." A few weeks ago, 500,000 people took to the streets of Montreal to protest austerity and so-called reforms. The city itself has 1.6 million inhabitants! This protest occurred after a law - Bill 78 - was passed outlawing freedom to assembly in Quebec.
They are a model for all protesters across the globe. They are hungry for democracy, and done with the tyranny of neoliberalism.
This means it is also time to Occupy Student Debt here.
