In Action for a Modern Quebec
that Defends the Rights of All
January - June

The year 2015 was one of resistance, courage and determination on the part of the working class and people of Quebec to defend the rights of all. In action all across Quebec to demand that the material, human, social and financial resources serve the needs of the people, the working class and its allies defended their demands on every front: public healthcare, education and social services geared toward the well-being of all, for an economy directed towards enabling everyone to live decently in all of Quebec's cities and regions and for the right to retire in dignity and within the best possible conditions.

Quebecers reject the neoliberal austerity agenda that Quebec "lacks the means" to satisfy the demands of the workers and people. Quebec workers create sufficient wealth to guarantee the realization of the rights of all. Prosperity can only be guaranteed through the defence of these rights in combination with a pro-social economy. Here are the workers and people in action in defence of the rights of all.
