The day after its congress, which took place on Saturday at Université Laval, the Coalition large de l’Association pour une solidarité étudiante (CLASSE, the Broad coalition of the Association for student solidarity) yesterday reaffirmed its determination to oppose “neoliberal policies” and to rally Quebeckers to its “social strike” through dialog, whether or not elections take place.
This strategy, elaborated last week along with the publication of its manifesto entitled “Share Our Future” and refined this weekend in Quebec City, will remain independent from any political party and will escalate its efforts in the event of an election call, underlined co-spokesperson Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois yesterday, who was reached by Le Devoir after a day of talks in Montérégie.
“What the congress decided upon was to conduct a campaign focused on the students’ ideas and values. To operate in parallel to the election campaign, to not follow any particular party, to go speak with people about our societal vision without sending out a briefing or instructions on what is to be done on voting day”, he said, adding that the Coalition is “clear-minded”.
