Femmes for Accessible Education

Regrets for the infrequency of posting recently, but as you may well imagine, we at the Wall of Femmes have been taking to the streets lately with hundreds of thousands of others across Quebec and elsewhere to demand accessible education and an end to neo-liberal austerity politics. 

For those not in the Montreal area, you may find the following links of interest in describing the situation here and what people are fighting for. For live coverage of demonstrations, check out CUTV Montreal (Concordia University TeleVision). 

From the UK Guardian, written by Montrealer Martin Lukacs

And from the Montreal Media Co-op, by Andrew Gavin Marshall

Of course, tuition hikes will disproportionately affect women, as outlined here by Concordia University's Simone de Beauvoir Institute

In related news, check out the poster below which we contributed to Montreal's Anarchist Bookfair last weekend. 

That's all for now, more to come soon.
