    Student Organizing with Divest McGill

    Student Organizing with Divest McGill

    In this episode I chat with two members of Divest McGill, a student-led organization at McGill University in so-called Montreal. They are fighting to force McGill to divest from the fossil fuel industry and transform the university into something liberatory and accountable to the people whose lives it affects. This spring, they led a more than two-week-long open, social occupation of a university building. All music in this episode is from the 2012 anti-folk opera "What The F*ck Am I Doing Here?" about anarchist participation in the 2012 Quebec student strike.
