The Montreal Student Movement Convention is a gathering of students from 5 continents that has been in the planning for nearly a year. From June 19-22, students will converge at the University of Quebec at Montreal to meet fellow organizers and learn from organizers all over the world about building student unions, creating intersectional movements, and taking a crucial step towards uniting as a global movement. 

The good news is that registrations have been pouring in, and more students than originally expected will be attending the convention. The bad news is that this has led to unexpected costs with UQAM and other logistical issues coming up at the 11th hour, which is why

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE THIS CONVENTION A REALITY. 

Because of the larger participant pool, the University has decided to charge more for room reservations beyond what was originally intended. In addition, hard fought for union regulations that protect the wages and rights of university workers must be honored. So, we need you to help get this link out to the world. 

EVERY DOLLAR MATTERS. EVERY PLACE YOU POST THIS LINK INCREASES THE POSSIBILITY OF MORE MONEY.

Sending this link to every student you know, every professor that supports the student struggle, every union member that believes in solidarity – it all matters. Posting in Facebook groups, sending emails, soliciting your second cousin you met once at a family reunion – it’s all valid. 

It’s up to us to make this conference a reality now. We can’t rely on just a few people to lead the way and solve this problem. If we’re going to overcome this deficit, it’s going to take all of us mobilizing in a real way over the course of the next 2 weeks. As student organizers, we believe that another world is possible, and that radical generosity can create a new reality. In attending this convention, we are taking a tangible first step toward building real international solidarity and a global student movement that is connected and powerful. Let’s practice what we preach. Let’s unite in solidarity. Let’s create one fist. As the student revolutionaries of May ‘68 said, LA BEAUTÉ EST DANS LA RUE. Let’s make it a reality. 

ALL POWER TO THE STUDENTS!

In solidarity and love,
The Montreal Student Movement Convention organizing commitee
