Subject: Mobilize Concordia! May 18th! It's been 5-years *since the
Strike/GGI - Concordia Get-Together!

#cinqansdeja / 5-years already!
Together we mobilised the Concordia campus much before the strike was
launched / ran around to make general assemblies happen / wrote strike
mandates and voted in the GAs / frantically picketed classes / made
numerous banners, flyers, signs and pickets / had countless arguments with
green squares and neoliberals / worked with amazingly friendly profs &
staff / fought and dealt with heavy-handed repression by Concordia
administration / shook the campus from the inside with protests and
demonstrations / took over Maisonneuve Street for a full week / blocked
hall bldg x2 / made history by being the first Anglo institution to join
provincial unlimited strike / proudly put Concordia (again)on the activist
map / found time to take part in the demonstrations while battling
anti-strike students on campus / and it goes on...
Some of us are (still) actively reflecting on how the strike changed us
transformed us, on how many of us burnt out from the organizing, from the
problematic dynamics and such, on how the Concordia landscape is changed
--for better or worse--, on how the strike storm gave a crash course to
hundreds of the students otherwise not politicized or involved, about how
the whole experience of being involved in the student movement mobilised
and radicalised more than a generation of students...
On this five-year mark let us get together for old times' sake, to say
hello to each other, to rejoice, to rejuvenate or to simply delve in
nostalgia. Some of us do need some time and space to talk about not only
the victories but also to reflect upon the bitter-sweet of it.
Thursday, May 18th
6pm - 9pm
Bring along your smiles, sadness, updates of where life brought you over
the past five years, how strike changed your life, if it did! Or just come
along as you are!
