14 Arrested at University of Toronto - Step up the fight for Free Education!

14 students at UofT, including Fightback supporters, have been arrested on false charges for fighting for free education. The charges include assaulting a police officer and forcible confinement, which could lead to serious jail time. The students have been released on strict bail conditions, which include not associating with each other outside of court and classes and not protesting anywhere on the University of Toronto Campus. These conditions clearly violate the Charter rights of the accused. The University is trying to crush this movement under repression before it takes off. Solidarity action is needed now!

Protest Repression of Student Dissent at University of Toronto

For over a month, there has been a serious mobilization of students at the University of Toronto campus against a series of fee increases. On March 20th, campus police violently broke up a peaceful sit-in at Simcoe Hall, injuring several students. Now they are threatening the student protesters with discipline and maybe even expulsion. Fightback calls on our readers, allies and supporters to send letters of condemnation to the President of the University of Toronto, David Naylor.
