On Thursday, March 22, around 300,000 students, teachers, and workers took to the streets of Montreal in a massive demonstration of historic proportions. On that day, 308,723 students were united in a strike across the province. The march was joined by buses from all over Quebec which brought students from universities, CEGEPs (General and Vocational Colleges), and even a significant contingent from the high schools! Workers’ unions, from the metal workers to the nurses, the teachers and others, also came out, flying their union flags.
