Zombies and zombie-fighters are called to face off, dance off, and party at Ô Patro Vys this Friday, October 30.

Noam Chomsky will be speaking in Montreal on October 26 at a talk put on by Canadian Dimensions Magazine. He'll be introduced by Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois who made headlines as a result of his dedicated contributions to the Quebec Maple Spring movement when basically everyone I know went to the streets and got teargased at one point or other during the course of several months of sustained protest against student tuition hikes.
In a letter to Concordia student Yuliya Manyakina, asking his opinion about the strike against tuition fee hikes, Chomsky responded “High tuition is not an economic necessity, as is easy to show, but a debt trap is a good technique of indoctrination and control. And resisting this makes good sense.”
