The Parliament of Quebec, dominated by the Liberal Party (conservative and unionist) approved this past week (May 18th) a law that:
- Forbids any crowd near a university
- Forbids any demonstration if the organizers do not notify police with at least 8 hours advise
- Brutal fines against organizers of demonstrations that obstruct the normal working of universities
The student strike is fighting against an attempt to more than double the fees from c. $1780 to $4000.

Some 200,000 marched against this fascist law and in demand for the resignation of Charest, who is decried as a tyrant.
