Last wednesday, after some students broke the court injunction inside UQAM, the administration allowed the SPVM to intervene and they arrested 21 students protesting against austerity inside the pavilion J-A De Seve. In reaction, students and teachers started to protest against the administration by occupying the pavilion. Later in the evening, the riot police entered the university to end the movement.

CKUT member Anouk Millet interviewed Marie Blais, president of the Syndicat des Charges de Cours (Lecturers Union) at UQAM.

They discussed the recent events and altercations between the university’s administration, the police forces and the students, the solutions to bring back peace to UQAM.
