A few days after 12M, the #YoSoy132 movent was born, this is their manifesto and their offcial web page:

On the other hand, probably your local asembly is preparing something, even symbolic in response to the G20 summit in Mexico, where our comrades at "Mexico Take the Street" are organizing the People's Summit  (info in Spanish):

You might have seen this small, subtle square pinned onto bags, shirts or caps: It all started in 2005 during the student strike that managed to save $103 million in bursaries for Quebec students.
It comes from the French saying “carrément dans le rouge,” which means “squarely in the red” or basically, that students were in debt because of tuition increase and cuts in bursaries.

It’s a very easy way to support Canadian students against the struggle against tuition increase.


10- USA - New York
