The Legal Defense Fund 2012 is a not for profit and non-partisan group acting in the context of the student struggle against the tuition hike. Its objective is to support arrestees and students unions that are burdened by overwhelming legal fees.
The Fund stands in solidarity with all the people arrested or detained in the context of the struggle against the tuition hike in 2011-2012, without consideration of their role in the organisation of actions or demonstrations or their political positions. The Fund considers that all students and activists arrested in the context of the student contestation have a right to logistical, human and financial support. The Fund considers that no one should be forced to plead guilty because of a lack of financial resources and it seeks to answer the needs of all the arrestees.
Student Unions :
The Legal Defense Fund 2012 is supported by an Advisory Committee composed of professors:
Francis Dupuis-Déri, Professor, Departement of Political Science, UQAM
Anna Kruzynski, Professor, School of Community and Public Affairs, Concordia
Lucie Lemonde, Professor, Departement of Legal Sciences, UQAM
Christian Nadeau, Professor, Department of Philosophy, Université de Montréal
The present student conflict has been judicialized beyond all expectations: we have been targeted by more than 3000 arrests, around twenty injunctions and an emergency law. We are in great need of support and donations to face the huge expenses that this judicialization generates.
You can make a donation by check (preferably) or via Paypal (but a portion of up to 3% of the donation will go to Paypal for transactional fees).
