stop the show 2.0 Stop Charest
Jean Charest is back, and Concordia University is throwing
a cocktail party for him at Arsenal.
We didn't get the invite.
So it seems only appropriate we crash the party.
We cordially invite you to:
Stop the Show 2.0.
All four major universities in Montreal are invited: UQAM, Concordia,
Universite de Montreal and McGill and anyone else still bitter
from Charest's nasty break up with the kids of Quebec.

to you by subMedia.TV, Médi@s Libres, Ni Québec, ni Canad

At Insurgent Projections, we are showing raucous docs and we encourage

colonial-patriarchal-authoritarian themes, while celebrating movements
of resistance fighting for freedom.
Inspired by the popular uprising of the past few years, Insurgent Projections
have a global and local focus and bring radical filmmakers to talk about
their craft and answer your questions.
There will also be tables with films and rabble rousing printed material
so you can start planning your rebellion!
