“Why we are Anti-Capitalist”
Since the liberal election, resistance appears to be growing against the Couillard government’s austerity program. A double discourse has again been revealed; although cuts are made, cronyism and a refusal to tax big businesses, banks, and the rich, continue to run rampant. In 2015, the student movement announced a heated spring, while unions held back until autumn…The mood intensified during collective union agreements and numerous strikes ensued throughout Community organizations as well. Before the holidays, an agreement seemed to have been reached with the Front Common. Faced with the threat of outrageous cuts, the voices of the people were heard louder than usual, and many were relieved to have weathered the worst. Many have announced the continuation of the battle this winter.
