The Ligue des droits et libertés (League of Rights and Liberties), the legal committee of the CLASSE (the Coalition large de l’Association pour une solidarité syndicale étudiante / Broad Coalition of the Association for Student Union Solidarity) and the Association des juristes progressistes (Association of progressive lawyers) are joining together to collect testimonies, from now until the 13 August 2012, from students and citizens who, since the start of the student strike, have been the subject of intimidation, police brutality, arrests, detention, any form of accusation or reprisals, or who have been denied access to public spaces or services because they were wearing a red square.
The three organizations intend to produce a report with these testimonies, which will thus allow a more global view of the breadth of the repression by the policing, judicial, and political systems. We invite you to examine the attached explanatory document (which includes a memory-aid to help you write your testimony, and to send us your testimonies at this address: email@example.com

Translated from the original French by Translating the printemps érable.
*Translating the printemps érable is a volunteer collective attempting to balance the English media’s extremely poor coverage of the student conflict in Québec by translating media that has been published in French into English. These are amateur translations; we have done our best to translate these pieces fairly and coherently, but the final texts may still leave something to be desired. If you find any important errors in any of these texts, we would be very grateful if you would share them with us at email@example.com. Please read and distribute these texts in the spirit in which they were intended; that of solidarity and the sharing of information.
