Subject: Thousands of Quebec students on strike

Dear colleagues,

Some pretty exciting things are happening here in Qu=E9bec. I have a list
here of all the student associations either on strike or about to strike.
Please forward this to anyone who might be interested. There seems to be a
loud silence on the issue from our national media, and we need to get the
word around.
