Students of Emmanuel College, a seminary of the University of Toronto, have written a Letter of Solidarity with those in Quebec and elsewhere who invite us to imagine a different approach to education and democracy.
The ongoing demonstrations in Quebec, which began as a student strike, have quickly gained support across Canada and around the world. Rising tuition, mounting debt burdens, distortion in the mainstream media, and violence against those engaged in the demonstrations resonate with a growing number of people. These students have drawn upon their faiths to stand in solidarity against injustice.
