Today on the show, CKUT News collective members Anna and Celia covered yesterday’s national anti-austerity demonstration in Montreal. It was organized by the Comite Printemps 2015.

Then, Antoine Cadaux was covering the demonstration on March 27th, opposing UQAM’s sanctions against 9 students for their actions in the last two years. Students, teachers and staff members gathered to express their desaproval of a procedure they consider being political repression.

Finally, the news collective had the opportunity to talk to Lise Millette, the president of the Federation Professionelle des Journalistes du Quebec. The organization recently issued a statement on violence against journalists in the current anti-austerity protests. Lise Millette will give us more detail.
