On the 3rd of July, teachers and supporters gathered outside the NEA's
(teacher's union) convention, then marched to the Canadian Embassy to
support the months long student strike against tuition hikes there.
The Montreal student strike has mushroomed into a poopular uprising
in all of Quebec that among other things disrupted the Grand Prix
dispite extreme police repression. While it is not unusual for a march
in DC to support such an uprising, it IS unusual for such a march to
orginate in or around something like the convention of the NEA.
